Hope for amputees lies in a strange looking Mexican salamander due to its ability to regenerate body parts. The creatures are called "water monsters." The half-foot-long axolotl is nearly extinct in its only remaining habitat. It's found in ancient Aztec canals that snake though southern Mexico City. The slimy animal is thriving in labs where it reproduces easily. It has the ability to re-grow injured limbs, jaws, skin, organs and parts of its brain and spinal chord. Only salamanders are...

A U.S. study has shown the first evidence that stem cells taken from a patient suffering severe angina and placed into that patient's heart may lessen pain. The data came from a six-month, Phase II study led by Dr. Douglas Losordo at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and director of the Program in Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The results from this study provide the first evidence that a patient's own stem cells could actually be...

The Axolotl, Ambystoma mexicanum
2014-02-03 08:59:54

The species situates, near Mexico City, on the bottom of Xochimilco’s lakes. Unlike most salamanders, Axolotl keep its larval features throughout its entire life and very rarely ever emerge from water. A condition...
