Many current regenerative medicine trials are based on heterologous stem cell transplantation, in which stem cells multiplied from one type of organ or tissue are transferred to treat diseases, disorders, or injuries in a different type of organ or tissue. Boston’s Adult Stem Cell Technology Center, LLC (ASCTC) continues to develop technologies that could allow as well natural, homologous stem cell transplantation therapies for more human organs and tissues. Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 23,...

RIKEN Stem cells have the unique ability to become any type of cell in the body. Given this, the possibility that they can be cultured and engineered in the laboratory makes them an attractive option for regenerative medicine. However, some conditions that are commonly used for culturing human stem cells have the potential to introduce contaminants, thus rendering the cells unusable for clinical use. These conditions cannot be avoided, however, as they help maintain the pluripotency of...

Scientists Successfully Transplant And Grow Stem Cells In Pigs
2014-06-05 03:38:48

Nathan Hurst, University of Missouri One of the biggest challenges for medical researchers studying the effectiveness of stem cell therapies is that transplants or grafts of cells are often rejected by the hosts. This rejection can render experiments useless, making research into potentially life-saving treatments a long and difficult process. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have shown that a new line of genetically modified pigs will host transplanted cells without the...
