US scientists have found that newborn mice can repair themselves after an injury, an important discovery that brings hopes that healing can occur with damaged hearts in people. Scientists removed large chunks of heart out of mice that were only a day old, only to find that their hearts were restored within three weeks. Fish and amphibians are known to have the power to re-grow parts of their hearts after major injuries, but the study, published in the journal Science, is the first time the...

Scientists from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute have begun to unravel how blood stem cells regenerate themselves, identifying a key gene required for the process. The discovery that the Erg gene is vitally important to blood stem cells' unique ability to self-renew could give scientists new opportunities to use blood stem cells for tissue repair, transplantation and other therapeutic applications. Professor Doug Hilton, Dr Samir Taoudi and colleagues from the institute's Molecular...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. When tissue is damaged, stem cells are activated to become new cells that will regenerate the damaged tissues, and heal the organ. Stem cell activity must be precisely controlled, and new research found that oxidative stress is at the heart of the control center. According to this study, a genetic switch has be indentified that controls oxidative stress in stem cells, and therefore governs stem cell function. The...

Findings to be published in Cell Stem Cell The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. Due to the presence of dedicated stem cells, many organs can undergo continuous renewal. When an organ becomes damaged, stem cells in the organ are typically activated, producing new cells to regenerate the tissue. This activity of stem cells, however, has to be carefully controlled, as too much stem cell activity can cause diseases like cancer. Current research in stem cell biology is starting...

Researchers have identified a cell in zebrafish that can be transplanted from one fish to another to regenerate nephrons, providing the potential to improve kidney function It is estimated that up to 10 percent of the U.S. population may have some form of renal disease, with 450,000 patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring hemodialysis. Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh have identified a cell in zebrafish...
