Researchers from the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) of Kyoto University and the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery of Osaka University have developed effective and convenient cardiac tissue-like constructs (CTLCs) for repairing myocardial infarctions.

November 1, 2017

Researchers at the University Medical Center of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have developed a promising technique to facilitate the differentiation of stem cells into neurons. This even enables them to accelerate the maturation process.

Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that a single infusion of wildtype hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) into a mouse model of Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) measurably halted cellular damage caused by the degenerative disease.

October 30, 2017

Stem cell researchers at Emory University School of Medicine (Atlanta, Georgia) have made an advance toward having a long-lasting "repair caulk" for blood vessels. The research could form the basis of a treatment for peripheral artery disease, derived from a patient's own cells.

Modeling the interplay between neurons and astrocytes derived from children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues in Brazil, say innate inflammation in the latter appears to contribute to neuronal dysfunction in

October 25, 2017

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore Medicine, report that certain nerves sustain prostate cancer growth by triggering a switch that causes tumor vessels to proliferate.

October 23, 2017

Killing cancer cells indirectly by powering up fat cells in the bone marrow could help acute myeloid leukemia patients, according to a new study from McMaster University.

October 23, 2017

Melanoma, a cancer of skin pigment cells called melanocytes, will strike an estimated 87,110 people in the United States in 2017, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

October 20, 2017

For the first time, researchers have created expanded potential stem cells (EPSCs) in mice that, they report, have a greater potential for development than current stem cell lines.
