Johns Hopkins researchers use a type of stem cells from human adipose tissue to chase migrating cancer cells In laboratory studies, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have found that stem cells from a patient's own fat may have the potential to deliver new treatments directly into the brain after the surgical removal of a glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive form of brain tumor. The investigators say so-called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have an unexplained ability to seek out...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new technique developed by an expert in craniofacial development and stem cell biology at King's College London and his colleagues offers up a new type of tooth replacement. The scientists wrote in the Journal of Dental Research about how they developed a new method of replacing missing teeth with a bioengineered material enervated from a person's own gum cells. Current methods for replacing teeth fail to reproduce a...

Can stem cells provide an answer to the perplexing question of how to ensure long-term survival of transplanted kidneys? The results of a new Phase 1 clinical trial say maybe so. Details of the trial, conducted by researchers at Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands, are published in the current issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine. Durham, NC (PRWEB) February 07, 2013 Kidney transplants have long been the treatment of choice for many patients with end-stage renal disease,...

Stem cells from bone marrow or fat improve recovery after stroke in rats, finds a study published in BioMed Central's open access journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy. Treatment with stem cells improved the amount of brain and nerve repair and the ability of the animals to complete behavioral tasks. Stem cell therapy holds promise for patients but there are many questions which need to be answered, regarding treatment protocols and which cell types to use. This research attempts to...

Mesenchymal (MSC) stem cells send out “homing signals” that recruit other stem cells and mobilize them to heal wounds, researchers at the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science have discovered. MSC stem cells are better suited to initiating the healing process rather than repairing tissue damage themselves, the researchers explain in an article published today in Stem Cells Translational Medicine. Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 21, 2012...

For Ottawa scientist and neonatologist Dr. Bernard Th̩baud, even a major paper that answers five significant questions still doesn't seem quite enough in his determined path to get his laboratory breakthrough into the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Dr. Th̩baud's proposed therapy would use stem cells from umbilical cords to treat a disease previously thought to be untreatable Рbronchopulmonary dysplasia, or BPD. "BPD is a lung disease described 45...

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that is characterized by tremors, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty walking. It is caused by loss of the neurons that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine (known as dopaminergic neurons). One of the primary goals in Parkinson's disease research is to develop a replacement for dopaminergic neurons. In this issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers led by Takuya Hayashi at the RIKEN...
