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...
