A new study released today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine suggests a new way to produce endothelial progenitor cells in quantities large enough to be feasible for use in developing new cancer treatments. Durham, NC (PRWEB) June 27, 2014 A new study released today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine suggests a new way to produce endothelial progenitor cells in quantities large enough to be feasible for use in developing new cancer treatments. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are...

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...

A new study appearing in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine (SCTM) demonstrates the potential of a subset of stem cell called CD34+ in treating hard to heal bone fractures. Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 04, 2013 A new study appearing in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine (SCTM) demonstrates the potential of a subset of stem cell called CD34+ in treating hard to heal bone fractures. While most patients recover from broken bones with little or no complication, up to 10 percent experience...

Pancreatic islet transplantation is a promising therapy for treating type 1 diabetes, but the majority of transplanted cells die soon after they are transplanted. Researchers interested in prolonging the life of these cells co-transplanted endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) along with pancreatic islet cells and found that the EPCs improved the engraftment of pancreatic islet cells in mouse models, thereby favorably impacting on the cure rate and glycemic control of transplanted islets. The...

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a protein expressed by human bone marrow stem cells that guides and stimulates the formation of blood vessels. Their findings, which could help improve the vascularization of engineered tissues, were reported online Oct. 12 in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology. “Some stem cells actually have multiple jobs,” says Dr. Jalees Rehman, associate professor of cardiology and pharmacology at the UIC College...

2 studies suggest infusion of these cells may contribute to organ regeneration in the future Damaged or diseased organs may someday be healed with an injection of blood vessel cells, eliminating the need for donated organs and transplants, according to scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College. In studies appearing in recent issues of Stem Cell Journal and Developmental Cell, the researchers show that endothelial cells -- the cells that make up the structure of blood vessels -- are...

A new study recently published by STEM CELLS Translational Medicine indicates that endothelial precursor cells, which are found in the bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, and as very rare cells in peripheral blood, could make a significant difference for stroke patients’ recovery. In animal studies, the treatment minimized the initial brain injury and helped repair the stroke damage. Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 09, 2013 Stroke is a major health concern and is a leading cause of death in...

Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center and The Heart House participate in clinical study to determine whether a patient´s own stem cells can relieve chronic chest pain caused by coronary artery disease. Camden, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 12, 2013 Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center and The Heart House are participating in a clinical study to determine whether a patient´s own (autologous), adult, stem cells are safe and can relieve chronic chest pain caused by coronary artery disease, as...
