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.
January 25, 2022
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.
January 24, 2022
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.
January 20, 2022
Body: Destroying senescent cells in the aging stem cell niche enhances hippocampal neurogenesis and cognitive function in mice, researchers report.
January 19, 2022
Body: New research suggests that targeting neighboring bone cells may be a better strategy than targeting malignant stem cells to treat acute myeloid leukemia.
January 18, 2022
Body: Scientists have revealed harmful changes in supporting cells, called astrocytes, in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
January 14, 2022
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.
January 11, 2022
Body: Researchers have developed the first patient-derived stem cell model for studying eye conditions related to oculocutaneous albinism (OCA).
December 30, 2021
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.
