US Distribution of NoSpin Cryopreserved HepaRG cells RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Triangle Research Labs, LLC and Biopredic International have completed an agreement for TRL to distribute the No-Spin HepaRG(TM) cells in North America. The No-Spin HepaRG(TM) represent an important improvement over the original cryopreserved HepaRG(TM) cells introduced three years ago for ADMET analyses. The HepaRG(TM) are renewable and reproducible hepatic cells derived...

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...

Shortage of livers for transplantation demands better liver cell transplantation A research team in Spain has developed high-yield preparations of viable hepatocytes (liver cells) isolated for transplantation from cryopreserved (frozen), banked neonatal livers that ranged in age from one day to 23 days. The researchers also assessed cell quality and function and found that neonatal hepatocytes show better thawing recovery than hepatocytes isolated from adult livers. The study appears as...

Study Brings Artificial Livers One Step Closer To Reality
2013-06-03 07:27:29

redOrbit staff & Wire Reports — Your Universe Online While the liver´s ability to regenerate itself has yet to be successfully harnessed to create artificial liver tissue for use in transplants, a team of researchers believe they are a step closer to overcoming the obstacles keeping this medical breakthrough from becoming a reality. Ordinarily, mature liver cells (also known as hepatocytes) lose their normal function rapidly when they are removed from the body. Now,...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenously encoded RNAs that regulate the stability or translation of mRNA molecules, and emerging research suggests that they have diverse roles in normal physiology and disease. In this issue, two groups investigated the role of the predominant liver miRNA, miR-122. Ann-Ping Tsou and colleagues from National Yang-Ming University in Taiwan, and a team led by Kalpana Ghoshal, from Ohio State University generated mouse models of MiR-122 loss of function, and determined...
