Efficient Model For Generating Human iPSCs Developed By UC San Diego Researchers
2013-08-02 07:55:05

University of California - San Diego Approach has potential to simplify generation of iPSCs for use in human stem cell therapies Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report a simple, easily reproducible RNA-based method of generating human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in the August 1 edition of Cell Stem Cell. Their approach has broad applicability for the successful production of iPSCs for use in human stem cell studies and eventual cell...

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Patent and Trademark Office today granted Factor Bioscience the first patent covering methods for reprogramming cells using RNA, a technology with wide-ranging applications in biological research and personalized medicine. The patented methods can transform patient skin cells into stem cells more rapidly, efficiently, and safely than previous techniques. "Reprogramming is an amazing process, when it works," explains...

Urine Stem Cells Used To Grow Teeth In The Lab
2013-07-30 08:25:59

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of researchers from China's Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health have demonstrated human teeth can be generated by stem cells from a very interesting source: Urine. The Chinese team says they can also generate other solid organs and tissues from human waste. It's been observed before that stem cells are found in urine. Furthermore, when these stem cells are collected, scientists can coerce them to become induced...

A new protocol for reprogramming induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into mature blood cells, using just a small amount of the patient’s own blood and a readily available cell type, is reported on in the current issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine. This novel method skips the generally accepted process of mixing iPSCs with either mouse or human stromal cells during the differentiation process and, in essence, ensures no outside and potentially harmful DNA is introduced into the...
