Study showing frog embryos can fully regrow eyes after injury could someday benefit humans

A University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) scientist and her team have found that frog embryos can fully regrow their eyes after injuries, a breakthrough that may lead one day to the ability to orchestrate tissue regeneration in humans.

The study by UNLV scientist Kelly Tseng, Ph.D., was recently published in the journal Experimental Eye Research.

Index measures similarity between cancer cells and pluripotent stem cells

The theory that cancer progression involves the acquisition by tumor cells of features similar to those of stem cells has gained strength in the scientific community. According to this theory, tumor cells tend to "forget" the tissue from which they originated as the disease progresses, acquiring an undifferentiated phenotype associated with heightened aggressiveness and treatment resistance.

Researchers gain new insights into blood cell formation

Every day, stem cells in our bone marrow produce billions of new red blood cells. Any disruption in this process can result in serious disease. Researchers from Charité – Universitätsmediz in Berlin and Harvard Medical School, Cambridge, Massachusetts, have succeeded in furthering our understanding of how blood cells are formed.

Their insights into the molecular foundations of this process may help break new ground in the treatment of certain types of anemia. The results of this study have been published in Cell.

India proposal would bring stem cells under government regulation

An amendment to India’s Drugs and Cosmetics Act has been proposed by the Union health ministry that would bring stem cells and cell-based products under the scope of the law. Under the proposal, stem cells and their derivatives would need to follow protocols mandated for any new drug development.

Researchers optimize lung stem cell engineering process

The Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM) at Boston University and Boston Medical Center has engineered two new categories of lung epithelial cells in vitro using pluripotent stem cells. CReM researchers detailed their use of single cell RNA sequencing, a state-of-the-art technique they employed to generate the most comprehensive profile to date of air sack-like (alveolospheres) and airway-like (bronchospheres) cells derived from pluripotent stem cells.
