August 13, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

From Cell Stem Cell

Research published in the 6th August edition of Cell Stem Cell suggests that human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) may be more similar than previously thought. This research, from the laboratory of...

August 13, 2010 | Limbal Stem Cells

From Nature

The long term success of limbal stem cell (LSC) therapy to treat blindness has been highlighted in an article from Nature News & Views. LSCs reside in the narrow zone between the cornea and conjunctiva and are essential for corneal clarity and the efficient...

August 13, 2010 |

Durham, North Carolina, August 27, 2010 — The Journal STEM CELLS® has published many important and exciting achievements in the field of stem cells during its twenty-eight year history. Through scientific discovery, the Journal reports on both adult and human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). The Journal believes that the scientific community benefits from research on...

August 13, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

By Stuart P. Atkinson

Our latest news section recently highlighted the publication of two advance articles from Nature and Nature Biotechnology which suggest that induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) retain memories of the differentiated...

August 13, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

By Stuart P. Atkinson

Delineation of the mechanisms by which embryonic stem cells (ESC) remain pluripotent and maintain the ability to differentiate across all germ lineages has attracted many studies which altogether can be consolidated into an information network which combines transcription factors, chromatin and DNA modifications, small RNAs and signal transduction...

August 5, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

By Stuart P. Atkinson

The potential applications of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) in regenerative medicine are far reaching, but the need for large numbers of these cells requires prolonged in vitro culture which can lead to the accumulation of unwanted genetic changes and potentially, tumorigenicity.

August 4, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

Widely reported

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorised Geron to carry out the world's first clinical trial using human embryonic stem cells (hESC) in patients with acute spinal cord injury. GRNOPC1 contains hESC-...

July 20, 2010 | Pluripotent Stem Cells

Two advance articles in Nature and Nature Biotechnology from the labs of Konrad Hochedlinger, George Daley and Andrew Feinberg have suggested that iPSC retain a “memory” of their initial state, and...

Potential Stem Cell Therapy for HIV Reported

From Nature Biotech

An advance online article from Nature Biotechnology reports the creation of genetically modified human hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells which when injected and engrafted in mice confer some resistance to HIV.   Specifically,...
