Study highlights therapeutic importance of targeting a broad set of signals between cancer cells and normal cells that support them Investigators at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today report important progress in research aimed at finding ways to fight cancer by targeting the local environment in which tumors grow and from which they draw sustenance. The targeting of interactions between cancer cells and their environment together with the traditional tactic of directly...

Like normal cells, cancer cells require amino acids for growth, maintenance, and cell signaling, and L-type amino acid transporters (LATs) are the delivery vehicles that supply them. Metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) cells are highly dependent on LATs to deliver the amino acid leucine that the cells need for growth and proliferation, according to a study published September 19 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. To investigate the function of LATs in...

In a recent study published by STEM CELLS, a research group from Stanford University describes a novel regimen for quashing the immunologic barrier with a short-course treatment of two costimlation-adhesion blockade agents, to allow engraftment of transplanted differentiated stem cells and their prolonged survival in tissue. Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 16, 2013 The scientific community has held tremendous hope for the eventual emergence of stem cell transplantation as a broadly applicable...

Functional Livers Created From Human Stem Cells
2013-07-04 07:31:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from Japan have reportedly used human stem cells to create functional human liver precursors similar to those found in fetuses, various media outlets reported on Wednesday. Writing in the journal Nature, Takanori Takebe of the Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine and colleagues mixed a cocktail of induced stem cells (created from adult tissue) to grow human liver "buds" that were then implanted in...
