MIAMI, March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New findings from a transplant study led by scientists from the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and a DRI Federation center at Xiamen University in China showed that mesenchymal stem cells may replace a powerful anti-rejection drug in transplant recipients. The results of this pioneering study involving kidney transplant patients is published in the March 21 issue of the Journal...

Researchers Use Noxious Gas To Convert Stem Cells To Liver Cells
2012-02-27 12:42:30

Japanese scientists have recently discovered that hydrogen sulfide (H2S) — the chemical responsible for such malodorous phenomena as human flatulence, bad breath and rotten eggs — can be used to efficiently convert stem cells from human teeth into liver cells. While the fetid chemical compound is produced in small quantities by the human body for use in a variety of biological signaling mechanisms, at high concentrations it is highly poisonous and extremely flammable. A team...

In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting , in Dallas, Texas, researchers will report that early transplantation of human placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells into the lateral ventricles of neonatal rats with birth-related brain damage is possible, and that the donor cells can survive and migrate in the recipient's brain. The study was designed to have the rat's brain damage mimic brain injury in infants with very...

BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BD Biosciences, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), announced today the availability of the new BD Mosaic(TM) Mesenchymal Stem Cell Serum-Free (hMSC SF), a complete cell culture environment for human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) derived from bone marrow. The BD Mosaic hMSC cell culture environment is designed to provide cell expansion in a shorter culture time--about half the time of traditional serum-based...

A new study by collaborating researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and L´Institut du Thorax in Nantes, France, indicates that stem cells derived from cardiac tissue are far more effective in repairing damage caused by a heart attack than therapies using stem cells taken from bone marrow. The study, published today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, suggests that human fetal cardiac-derived c-kit+ stem cells (CSCs) can be 30 times more potent than bone marrow...

Muscle Stem Cells Activated By Exercise
2012-02-07 05:19:26

University of Illinois researchers determined that an adult stem cell present in muscle is responsive to exercise, a discovery that may provide a link between exercise and muscle health. The findings could lead to new therapeutic techniques using these cells to rehabilitate injured muscle and prevent or restore muscle loss with age. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in skeletal muscle have been known to be important for muscle repair in response to non-physiological injury, predominantly in...

Eyes Contain Flexible Adult Stem Cells
2012-01-06 07:35:49

In the future, patients in need of perfectly matched neural stem cells may not need to look any further than their own eyes. Researchers reporting in the January issue of Cell Stem Cell, a Cell Press publication, have identified adult stem cells of the central nervous system in a single layer of cells at the back of the eye. That cell layer, known as the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), underlies and supports photoreceptors in the light-sensitive retina. Without it, photoreceptors and...
