Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report: Stem Cell Markets. London (PRWEB) November 05, 2013 A stem cell is an extraordinary type of cell that has the ability to self-renew for long periods of time and to differentiate into specialized cells under appropriate physiological or experimental conditions. Traditionally, stem cells have been classified as either embryonic, adult (tissue-specific or cord blood) stem cells. Recent understanding of stem cell biology may provide...

In a feat of modern-day alchemy with huge potential for regenerative medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine scientists have developed a fast, efficient way to turn cells extracted from routine liposuction into liver cells. The advance is described in a study to be published Oct. 21 in Cell Transplantation. The scientists performed their experiments in mice, but the adipose stem cells they used came from human liposuction aspirates and became human, liver-like cells that...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a UCLA researcher’s newly developed way of measuring a person’s biological clock, a woman’s breasts age faster than the rest of her body. The novel method developed by Steve Horvath, a professor of human genetics and biostatistics at UCLA, was created by studying methylation, a naturally occurring genetic progression that chemically changes DNA. "To fight aging, we first need an objective way of measuring it....

Researchers Discover And Treat Toxic Effects Of ALS Mutation Using Neurons Made From Patients' Skin Cells
2013-10-16 16:30:46

Cell Press Researchers have discovered how the most common genetic abnormality in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) kills neurons and have successfully developed a therapeutic strategy to block this neurodegeneration in neurons made from the skin cells of ALS patients. The findings, which are published online in the October 16th issue of the Cell Press journal Neuron, have important implications for treating patients with these debilitating, currently...
