Researchers at the University of Missouri (UM) have shown that a new line of genetically modified pigs will host transplanted cells without the risk of rejection.

June 2, 2014

StemCells Inc., Newark, CA has transplanted its proprietary HuCNS-SC® purified human neural stem cells into the first five patients in the final cohort of its 16-patient phase I/II trial for geographic atrophy of age related macular degeneration (GA-AMD).

June 2, 2014

Two years ago researchers found a new type of stem cell in the brain that has the capacity to form new cells. A follow-up study now reveals that these same stem cells are directly involved in the reaction of the brain after stroke.

May 20, 2014

Scientists have uncovered a potential solution for how to more effectively kill tumor cells using cancer-killing viruses.

May 20, 2014

Two news studies show science is moving closer to developing treatments from stem cells for those suffering from neural-related conditions including multiple sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer’s disease.

May 12, 2014

Scientists have merged stem cell and “organ-on-a-chip” technologies to grow functioning human heart tissue carrying an inherited cardiovascular disease.

May 12, 2014

A new study by researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) challenges research data that form the scientific basis of clinical trials in which heart attack patients are injected with stem cells in an attempt to regenerate damaged hea

May 6, 2014

Researchers have discovered that stem cells taken from teeth can grow to resemble brain cells, suggesting they could one day be used in the brain as a therapy for stroke.

May 6, 2014

Researchers have discovered that a type of cell that builds mouse hearts can renew itself, a finding that may pave the way to using these cells to repair hearts damaged by disease or to growing new heart tissue for transplantation.

April 28, 2014

New research suggests that attempts to isolate an elusive adult stem cell from blood to understand and potentially improve cardiovascular health—a task considered very difficult—might not be necessary.
