Promises broad clinical benefits, from bone marrow transplantation to therapies for heart, brain, skin and lungs In a leap toward making stem cell therapy widely available, researchers at the Ansary Stem Cell Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College have discovered that endothelial cells, the most basic building blocks of the vascular system, produce growth factors that can grow copious amounts of adult stem cells and their progeny over the course of weeks. Until now, adult stem cell...

HOUSTON -- Components of the blood or hematopoietic system derive from stem cell subtypes rather than one single stem cell that gives rise to all the different kinds of blood cells equally, said scientists from Baylor College of Medicine (www.bcm.edu) in a report that appears in the current issue of the journal Cell Stem Cell (www.cell.com/cell-stem-cell/) "While previous reports in journals have hinted at the possibility of stem cell subtypes, this study represents the clearest data to show...

Can bone marrow be quickly revived after destruction by leukemia treatment? A key compound resupplies bone marrow with fast-acting stem cells that can more quickly rekindle blood cell production, according to a study published online today in the journal Blood. While the study was in mice, in the study authors say it has the potential to increase survival among patients with life-threatening blood cell shortages. Thanks to stem cells, humans develop from one cell into a complex being with as...

The research team led by Dr. Timm Schroeder, stem cell researcher at Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen, has developed a new bioimaging method for observing the differentiation of hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC) at the single-cell level. With this method the researchers were able to prove for the first time that not only cell-intrinsic mechanisms, but also external environmental factors such as growth factors can control HPC lineage choice directly. The findings, published in the current issue of...

For decades scientists from various disciplines have discussed to what respective extent genetic predisposition and environmental factors influence human development. Likewise, the same "Ëœnature vs. nurture' issue is debated by hematologists and stem cell researchers: Is multipotent progenitor cell differentiation influenced solely by cell-intrinsic mechanisms or is it also influenced by the environment of the cell? What role do growth factors such as cytokines play? Do they...

Blood stem cells literally go with the flow, according to a new report published as an immediate early publication in the journal Cell, a Cell Press journal, on May 13th. Researchers have found that a heart beat and blood circulation are critical signals for the production of blood-forming, or hematopoietic, stem cells in the developing embryo. The evidence found in zebrafish and mice may lead to new methods to coax embryonic stem cell-like cells (known as induced pluripotent stem cells or...

The thymus gland is an endocrine organ of the immune system located anteriolateral to the trachea and in between the lungs. Its primary function is to build T lymphocytes for the body’s immune system; therefore, it is most important during childhood and puberty, when it reaches its maximum size. After puberty, it will begin to atrophy and shrink in size. Old age generally brings about hypotrophy of the thymus. In children the thymus is grayish-pink in color and in adults it is yellow. On...
