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...

Findings suggest a potent new therapeutic target for certain types of cancer Scientists have discovered the survival secret to a genetic mutation that stokes leukemia cells, solving an evolutionary riddle and paving the way to a highly targeted therapy for leukemia. In a paper published today in Cell, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center describe how a mutated protein, called Fbxw7, behaves differently when expressed in cancer cells versus healthy cells. "Fbxw7 is essential for making...
