In a study published in the June issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, researchers were able to demonstrate the potential of a population of stem cells found in human fat to generate bone. They also identified a new factor to stimulate bone growth. Bone grafts grown from purified stem cells originating from fat could lead to a more efficient way to regenerate bone and end the painful operations needed to collect a patient´s own bone for grafting. The results could have significant...

How a certain type of stem cell mobilizes in the circulation system of older people to repair damage from a heart attack or even to fight the aging process itself could hold the key to treating cardiac and other age-related diseases, according to a new study by researchers at Showa University in Japan. In an article published in the June issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine the researchers detail how, for the first time, they were able to home in on a protein called CD271 found on...

Brown researchers have discovered mechanical properties of stem cells can foretell what they will become To become better healers, tissue engineering need a timely and reliable way to obtain enough raw materials: cells that either already are or can become the tissue they need to build. In a new study, Brown University biomedical engineers show that the stiffness, viscosity, and other mechanical properties of adult stem cells derived from fat, such as liposuction waste, can predict whether...
