Body: Researchers have explored the cellular changes that occur in human mammary tissue in lactating and non-lactating women, offering insight into the relationship between pregnancy, lactation, and breast cancer.
Body: Recent discoveries by stem cell scientists may help make cancer treatment more efficient and shorten the time it takes for people to recover from radiation and chemotherapy.
Body: Researchers have found that induced pluripotent stem cell--derived cardiomyocytes from a patient with arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy recapitulate the reduced contractility and impaired desmosome assembly associated with this disease, providing a rapid and convenient platform for developing new treatments such as gene replacement therapy.
Body: Destroying senescent cells in the aging stem cell niche enhances hippocampal neurogenesis and cognitive function in mice, researchers report.
Body: New research suggests that targeting neighboring bone cells may be a better strategy than targeting malignant stem cells to treat acute myeloid leukemia.
Body: Scientists have revealed harmful changes in supporting cells, called astrocytes, in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Body: A mutation in the gene that causes fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) doesn't just cause extra bone growth but is tied to a problem in generating new muscle tissue after injury, according to new research.
Body: Researchers have developed the first patient-derived stem cell model for studying eye conditions related to oculocutaneous albinism (OCA).
Body: The secret to producing large batches of stem cells more efficiently may lie in the near-zero gravity conditions of space. Scientists have found that microgravity has the potential to contribute to life-saving advances on Earth by facilitating the rapid mass production of stem cells.
Body: Scientists have found a way to prove that biochemical signals sent from cell to cell play an important role in determining how those cells develop, findings that can help explain how stem cells differentiate and how cancer arises and proliferates, possibly leading to new treatments.
