CHOP researchers advance stem cell studies in a childhood leukemia and diamond blackfan anemia First produced only in the past decade, human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are capable of developing into many or even all human cell types. In new research, scientists reprogrammed skin cells from patients with rare blood disorders into iPSCs, highlighting the great promise of these cells in advancing understanding of those challenging diseases—and eventually in...

Through genetic engineering of laboratory models, researchers at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center have uncovered a vulnerability in the way cancer cells diverge from normal regenerating cells that may help treat children with leukemia as reported in the journal PNAS on June 3, 2013. Dartmouth researchers are trying to understand the key pathways that distinguish how a normal blood cell grows and divides compared to the altered growth that occurs in leukemia.  In addition...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A research team from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania used a novel cell therapy to reprogram the immune cells of two leukemia patients, resulting in a complete remission of the disease and a total lack of evidence of cancer cells in their bodies. The treatment, which is described in a study that is currently available online and will appear in the April 18 print edition of the New England...
