Researchers in Japan have completed a study showing that stem cells derived from deciduous canine teeth and dental pulp can be grafted and produce bone regeneration between parents and offspring. Their results are published in the current issue of Cell Transplantation (20:7), now freely available on-line. "Bone defects can occur for a number of reasons, and autogenous bone grafting - using the patient's own bone - has been a standard approach to treatment," said study corresponding author...

"Form follows function!" was the credo of early 20th century architects making design choices based on the intended use of the structure. Cell biologists may be turning that on its head. New research by a team working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reinforces the idea that stem cells can be induced to develop into specific types of cells solely by controlling their shape. The results may be important to the design of materials to induce the regeneration of lost...

Mesenchymal stem cells protect and heal A stem cell that can morph into a number of different tissues is proving a natural protector, healer and antibiotic maker, researchers at Case Western Reserve University and their peers have found. Mesenchymal stem cells reaped from bone marrow had been hailed as the key to growing new organs to replace those damaged or destroyed by violence or disease, but have failed to live up to the billing. Instead, scientists who'd been trying to manipulate the...

LOS ANGELES, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FamilyCord, one of the nation's leading cord blood banks, today announced their latest contribution to the advancement of the umbilical cord blood and tissue storage industry: CordTissuePlus. With CordTissuePlus, new parents now have the opportunity to not only store stem cells from their baby's cord blood, but also from the umbilical cord as well. Stem cells have the capacity to develop into many different cell types in the body and are...

Researchers may have found the key to developing a method to rid the body of stem cells responsible for driving fat expansion. According to a report in the June 16 Cell Stem Cell, a Cell Press publication, they've landed the first protein marker on the surface of those so-called adipose stromal cells (ASCs), which serve as progenitors of the cells that make up fat tissue. "Our long-term goal is to identify an approach to inactivate these cells in disease," said Mikhail Kolonin of University...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ A study on mice suggests that adult stem cells from immune system tissue in the smell-sensing region of the human nose could provide a source of cells to treat brain disorders in which nerve cells are lost or irreparably damaged. Stem cells are always promising candidates for sources of cells for the regeneration and repair of tissues damaged by various brain disorders. Two types of stem cells, embryonic stem (ES) cells and induced pluripotents stem (iPS) cells,...


Word of the Day
callithump
  • A somewhat riotous parade, accompanied with the blowing of tin horns, and other discordant noises; also, a burlesque serenade; a charivari.
'Callithump' is a back-formation of 'callithumpian,' a 'fanciful formation' according to the Oxford English Dictionary.
