Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a protein expressed by human bone marrow stem cells that guides and stimulates the formation of blood vessels. Their findings, which could help improve the vascularization of engineered tissues, were reported online Oct. 12 in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology. “Some stem cells actually have multiple jobs,” says Dr. Jalees Rehman, associate professor of cardiology and pharmacology at the UIC College...

A group of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Harvard Stem Cell Institute researchers, and collaborators at MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital have found a way to use stem cells as drug delivery vehicles. The researchers inserted modified strands of messenger RNA into connective tissue stem cells—called mesenchymal stem cells—which stimulated the cells to produce adhesive surface proteins and secrete interleukin-10, an anti-inflammatory molecule. When injected into the bloodstream...

System can help discern recipes for tissue and organ repair and replacements Scientists know that physical and biochemical signals can guide cells to make, for example, muscle, blood vessels or bone. But the exact recipes to produce the desired tissues have proved elusive. Now, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have taken a step toward identifying that mix by developing an easy and versatile way of forming physical and biochemical gradients in three dimensions....

As stem cell clinical trials for multiple sclerosis (MS) patients become more common, it is crucial for researchers to understand the biologic changes and therapeutic effects of older donor stem cells. A new study appearing in the latest issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine is the first to demonstrate that, in fact, adipose-derived stem cells donated by older people are less effective than cells from their younger counterparts. Durham, NC (PRWEB) September 09, 2013 As stem cell...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from the Ostrow School of Dentistry of the University of Southern California (USC) reveals stem cells found in mouth tissue can relieve inflammatory disease, as well as become other types of cells. The study, published in a recent issue of the Journal of Dental Research, focused on gingival mesenchymal stem cells (GMSC) that are found in the gingival, or gum tissue, of the mouth. Like other stem cells, GMSC have the...
