Latest Mesenchymal stem cell Stories
A type of adult stem cell is now proving itself more versatile for research and therapies thanks to revolutionary 3D experiments.
BOSTON, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 15 years now, parents have had the option to save the blood that is found within their baby's umbilical cord immediately following birth. The blood is rich in hematopoietic stem cells (HSC's).
Itâ€™s been shown for the first time that stem cells injected into enlarged hearts reduced hear size, reduced scar tissue, and improved function to injured heart areas, according to this human trial.
A fibroblast is not always just a fibroblast â€“ particularly in the heart.
Researchers have shown for the first time that stem cells injected into enlarged hearts reduced heart size, reduced scar tissue and improved function to injured heart areas.

Stem Cell scientists in Australia have found that patients suffering from hearing problems which began during infancy and childhood could benefit from a transplant of stem cells from their nose.
Successful intranasal delivery of stem cells to the brains of rats with Parkinson disease yielded significant improvement in motor function and reversed the dopamine deficiency characteristic of the disease.
In work that could jumpstart the promising field of cell therapy, in which cells are transplanted into the body to treat a variety of diseases and tissue defects, researchers at Brigham and Womenâ€™s Hospital (BWH) have engineered cells that could solve one of the key challenges associated with the procedure: control of the cells and their microenvironment following transplantation.
