Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) taken from a patient hold great therapeutic potential for many diseases. However, studies in rodents have suggested that the body may mount an immune response and destroy cells derived from iPSCs. New research in monkeys refutes these findings, suggesting that in primates like us, such cells will not be rejected by the immune system. In the paper, publishing September 26 in the ISSCR's journal Stem Cell Reports, published by Cell Press, iPSCs from...

Discovery of RNA regulator could lead to a better understanding of diseases like cancer and influenzaSingapore, Sept 9, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Scientists at A*STAR's Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS), in collaboration with their counterparts from Canada, Hong Kong and US, have discovered a protein mediator SON plays a critical role in the health and proper functioning of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). This finding was reported on 8th September 2013 in the...

Five-year program will refine use of adult stem cells and novel biological sutures developed at WPI to heal damaged hearts. Worcester, MA (PRWEB) August 28, 2013 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a five-year, $1.94 million grant to a biomedical research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) working at the forefront of cell therapies for healing cardiac muscle damaged by heart attack or chronic disease. Funded through the NIH's premiere Research Project Grant...

Work has important treatment implications In a scientific first, Harvard Stem Cell Institute scientists have successfully grown the cells that line the blood vessels—called vascular endothelial cells—from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), revealing new details about how these cells function. Using a unique approach, the researchers induced the differentiation of specific cell types by generating mechanical forces on the surface of the iPSC-derived endothelium mimicking the...

In a recent study published by STEM CELLS, a research group from Stanford University describes a novel regimen for quashing the immunologic barrier with a short-course treatment of two costimlation-adhesion blockade agents, to allow engraftment of transplanted differentiated stem cells and their prolonged survival in tissue. Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 16, 2013 The scientific community has held tremendous hope for the eventual emergence of stem cell transplantation as a broadly applicable...

For the first time, a mouse heart was able to contract and beat again after its own cells were stripped and replaced with human heart precursor cells, said scientists from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The findings, reported online today in Nature Communications, show the promise that regenerating a functional organ by placing human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells – which could be personalized for the recipient – in a three-dimensional scaffold could have for...
