Latest Regenerative biomedicine Stories
In the wake of a heart attack, the heart's tissues sustain irreparable damage. Cells in the heart cannot multiply and the heart muscle contains very few stem cells, meaning that the tissue is unable to repair itself. The damaged tissue therefore becomes fibrotic and cannot contract correctly.
Based on experiments with Mexican salamanders, researchers have found that elements of a salamander’s immune system called macrophages play a key role in enabling the regenerative process.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have devised a way to detect whether cells previously transplanted into a living animal are alive or dead, an innovation they say is likely to speed the development of cell replacement therapies for conditions such as liver failure and type 1 diabetes.

Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) may also be referred to as the Mexican salamander or the Mexican walking fish. The Axolotl is a member of the Ambystomatidae family and although its common name may suggest it is a fish, it is an amphibian. Axolotl are found exclusively in Mexico. 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...
