2013-07-16 09:20:13

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers have managed to create long-lasting blood vessels from reprogrammed human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), This groundbreaking research is published in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Early Edition. Using vascular precursor cells derived from iPSCs, reprogrammed adult cells that have several of the same characteristics of...

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...

A team of Toronto-based researchers may be one step closer to a 'recipe' for large-scale production of stem cells for use in research and therapy. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can be of great value for medical research because they can flexibly develop into many different types of cells. However, producing these cells is challenging because the proteins that control their generation are largely unknown. But researchers from the University of Toronto, the Hospital for Sick...

Functional Livers Created From Human Stem Cells
2013-07-04 07:31:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from Japan have reportedly used human stem cells to create functional human liver precursors similar to those found in fetuses, various media outlets reported on Wednesday. Writing in the journal Nature, Takanori Takebe of the Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine and colleagues mixed a cocktail of induced stem cells (created from adult tissue) to grow human liver "buds" that were then implanted in...

New 'Biowire' Technology Can Mature Human Heart By Mimicking Fetal Heartrate
2013-06-24 10:52:41

University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering A new method of maturing human heart cells that simulates the natural growth environment of heart cells while applying electrical pulses to mimic the heart rate of fetal humans has led researchers at the University of Toronto to an electrifying step forward for cardiac research. The discovery, announced this week in the scientific journal Nature Methods, offers cardiac researchers a fast and reliable method of creating...
