8:53 PM | Proteins that break down glucose important for iPSCs development
Hannele Ruohola-Baker, Julie Mathieu, Amy Ferreccio, Zsuzsa Agoston, Henrik Sperber, Yalan Xing.(left to right)Credit: Michael McCarthyNew research by scientists at the University of Washington shows that two proteins that control how cells break down glucose play a key role in human stem cell formation. Their findings have implications for future work in both regenerative medicine and cancer therapy.The study was led by Julie Mathieu, a postdoctoral fellow at the UW, and Wenyu […]

5:48 PM | Stem cell combination therapy improves traumatic brain injury outcomes
CT scan showing cerebral contusions, hemorrhage within the hemispheres, subdural hematoma, and skull fractures[Traumatic brain injuries (TBI), sustained by close to 2 million Americans annually, including military personnel, are debilitating and devastating for patients and their families. Regardless of severity, those with TBI can suffer a range of motor, behavioral, intellectual and cognitive disabilities over the short or long term. Sadly, clinical treatments for TBI are few and largely […]

5:32 PM | New DIY technique allows induced pluripotent stem cells to be created from a single drop of blood
Schematic on finger-prick blood isolation and treatment for cellular reprogramming.(Click to enlarge)Credit: Loh Yuin Han, Jonathan, IMCBResearchers at A*STAR's Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) announced today a new method to generate human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) using a single drop of finger-pricked blood.The method also enables donors to collect their own blood samples that can be then send to a laboratory for further processing. The easy access to blood samples […]

12:26 PM | Muscle stem cells treat nerve damage in an animal model of sciatic nerve injury
Johnny Huard, PhDCreditAccording to a new study by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, stem cells derived from human muscle tissue can be used to repair nerve damage and restore function. The study was carried out in an animal model of sciatic nerve injury.The findings indicate that cell therapy for certain nerve diseases, including multiple sclerosis, might one day be possible.As of now, treatments for damage to peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside the […]
