Neural stem cells proliferate in the subventricular zone and hippocampal dentate gyrus of adult mammals. However, the number of endogenous neural stem cells is insufficient to prevent cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injuries such as vascular dementia, so it is important to stimulate endogenous neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation. The ginkgo biloba extract EGb761 effectively and safely treats memory loss and cognitive impairments in patients with senile dementia. Prof. Yuliang...

AUSTIN, Texas, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, July 17(th), Celling Biosciences made an asset acquisition of devices, proprietary methods and intellectual property from Orogen Biosciences. Orogen, based out of Sarasota, Florida, was an early innovator in processing platelet rich plasma (PRP) and concentrating growth factors and cytokines to optimize the most effective and efficient methods for providing therapeutic treatments with a patient's own tissue. With this...

Atrium repairs ventricle If the heart following a heart attack is not sufficiently supplied with blood, heart tissue dies. In adult humans, the ability to heal itself is hardly developed. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim, together with U.S. colleagues, have now observed in the embryo of the zebrafish that muscle cells migrate from the undamaged atrium into the ventricle and thus significantly contribute to regeneration. This could serve as...

TAMPA, Fla., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As new medical frontiers are forged, their place in sports medicine will be assured if athletes can recover or heal faster. This concept has not been lost in the dawn of Regenerative Medicine. This new age has emerged in which regenerative stem cell treatments are being applied to blindness, spinal cord injuries and congestive heart failure. It is no wonder that elite athletes such as Peyton Manning turned to stem cells when his neck wasn't...

“Regenerative Medicines: Bone and Joint Applications” is the new market research report added to ReportsnReports.com store. Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 26, 2013 Regenerative medicine in orthopedic applications is a $2.7 billion per year niche sector in America’s $2.6 trillion per year healthcare system. However, it is a sector of immense interest in terms of technical and medical possibilities. The best analogy to the current state of regenerative therapies in the bone and joint healing...

Studies in zebrafish reveal abundant potential source for repair of injured heart muscle In a study published in the June 19 online edition of the journal Nature, a scientific team led by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine visually monitored the dynamic cellular events that take place when cardiac regeneration occurs in zebrafish after cardiac ventricular injury. Their findings provide evidence that various cell lines in the heart are more plastic,...

Researchers discover biochemical pathway that links nail growth to fingertip regeneration Mammals possess the remarkable ability to regenerate a lost fingertip, including the nail, nerves and even bone. In humans, an amputated fingertip can sprout back in as little as two months, a phenomenon that has remained poorly understood until now. In a paper published today in the journal Nature, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center shed light on this rare regenerative power in mammals, using...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Much like the liver, it is thought that human skin once had the ability to regenerate. Over time, however, this ability was lost. Anthony Metcalfe professor of burns and wounds at the University of Brighton and director of research at the Blond McIndoe Research Foundation, led a team of researchers who are attempting to restart the process. "The idea that humans once had the ability to regenerate skin comes from the notion that...

Penn Medicine study highlights interplay between immune system and tissue regeneration Researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have determined the role of a key growth factor, found in skin cells of limited quantities in humans, which helps hair follicles form and regenerate during the wound healing process. When this growth factor, called Fgf9, was overexpressed in a mouse model, there was a two- to three-fold increase in the number of new hair...
