Latest Teratoma Stories
Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota performs first known minimally invasive Visualase surgery on rare mature teratoma tumor; results showcased on nationally syndicated talk show, The Doctors
A team of researchers led by the UAB has found the first ancient remains of a calcified ovarian teratoma, in the pelvis of the skeleton of a woman from the Roman era.
The new method boosts cell yields and increases safety, helping to get another step closer to regenerative medicine
Doctors at a Florida hospital announced this week that they had successfully removed an extremely rare tumor from the mouth of a 17-week-old fetus.
Japanese scientists have recently discovered that hydrogen sulfide (H2S) – the chemical responsible for such malodorous phenomena as human flatulence, bad breath and rotten eggs – can be used to efficiently convert stem cells from human teeth into liver cells.
Like fine chefs, scientists are seemingly approaching a day when they will be able to make nearly any type of tissue from human embryonic stem cells.
"Pluripotent" stem cellsâ€”which have the potential to mature into almost any cell in the bodyâ€”are being widely studied for their role in treating a vast array of human diseases and for generating cells and tissues for transplantation.
Scientists at the UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center have described a population of cells that mark the very first stage of differentiation of human embryonic stem cells as they enter a developmental pathway that leads to production of blood, heart muscle, blood vessels and bone.
A team of biologists at UC San Diego funded by a grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the stateâ€™s stem-cell funding agency, has discovered a way to limit the formation of teratomas.
Repairing birth defects in the womb. Inserting a tiny laser into the mother's uterus to seal off an abnormal blood flow and save fetal twins. Advancing the science that may allow doctors to deliver cells or DNA to treat sickle cell anemia and other genetic diseases before birth.
