'Heart Disease-On-A-Chip' Made From Patient Stem Cells
2014-05-12 03:22:55

[ Watch The Video: Cardiac Tissue Contractile Strength Differences Shown Using “Heart-On-A-Chip” ] Harvard University Harvard scientists have merged stem cell and 'organ-on-a-chip' technologies to grow, for the first time, functioning human heart tissue carrying an inherited cardiovascular disease. The research appears to be a big step forward for personalized medicine, as it is working proof that a chunk of tissue containing a patient's specific genetic disorder can be replicated...

Salk scientists find two key proteins that regulate the growth of mammary stem cells and could contribute to breast cancer By carefully controlling the levels of two proteins, researchers at the Salk Institute have discovered how to keep mammary stem cells—those that can form breast tissue—alive and functioning in the lab. The new ability to propagate mammary stem cells is allowing them to study both breast development and the formation of breast cancers. "What we've shown is that...

Scientists at the University of East Anglia have made an important step in understanding how hearts are formed in developing embryos. The heart is the first functioning organ to develop in humans, and correct formation is crucial for embryo survival and growth. New research published today reveals how cells that form the heart, known as ‘cardiac progenitors’, are guided to move into the right place for the heart to begin to form. It is hoped that the findings will help...

The independent group of scientists, led by experts at the New York Stem Cell Foundation...

Unlocking The Secrets Of Death In A Long-Lived Individual's Blood
2014-04-28 10:35:58

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online They say that only two things in life are certain: death and taxes. For the former, a new study of the blood of one of the world’s oldest women has offered clues to not only why death occurs, but may also unlock some of the secrets of longevity. Hendrikie van Andel-Schipper, who was born in 1890 and lived to the ripe old age of 115, was at the time of her death in 2005 the oldest person in the world. But as astonishing as that...

Systems approach is used in lieu of isolating adult stem cell types New research suggests that attempts to isolate an elusive adult stem cell from blood to understand and potentially improve cardiovascular health – a task considered possible but very difficult – might not be necessary. Instead, scientists have found that multiple types of cells with primitive characteristics circulating in the blood appear to provide the same benefits expected from a stem cell, including the...
