New Cord Tissue Research, Aggressive Product Development and Lower Prices Make Cord Tissue Banking More Appealing NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When Americord validated its proprietary method for harvesting and preserving mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from placenta tissue late last year, it joined leaders in the global scientific community who are increasingly investing significant resources in what many researchers believe represents the future of stem cell-based...

Protein Critical To Hematopoietic Stem Cell Function And Blood Formation Identified
2014-02-03 08:09:16

University of California - San Diego Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified a protein critical to hematopoietic stem cell function and blood formation. The finding has potential as a new target for treating leukemia because cancer stem cells rely upon the same protein to regulate and sustain their growth. Hematopoietic stem cells give rise to all other blood cells. Writing in the February 2, 2014 advance online issue of Nature Genetics,...

A new study shows that, when properly manipulated, a population of support cells found in the brain called astrocytes could provide a new and promising approach to treat Parkinson's disease. These findings, which were made using an animal model of the disease, demonstrate that a single therapy could simultaneously repair the multiple types of neurological damage caused by Parkinson's, providing an overall benefit that has not been achieved in other approaches. "One of the central...

Japanese Scientists Dip Blood Cells In Acid To Create Stem Cells
2014-01-29 12:32:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Japanese scientists, publishing a paper in the journal Nature, have developed a new method in which stem cells could now be made quickly just by dipping blood cells into acid. The human body is made up of cells designed for a specific task, but stem cells can become any other type of cell, giving them huge potential in future medicine. However, stem cells have been the source of heated ethics discussions because embryos have been the...
