U.S. scientists have successfully generated hypothalamic-like neurons from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) taken from the blood and skin cells of super-obese individuals and people with a normal body weight.
One of the most vexing problems with spinal cord injuries is that the human body does not rebuild nerves once they have been damaged. Other animals, on the other hand, seem to have no problem repairing broken neurons.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Researchers are now able to use induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to form a model of human adult-like cardiac muscle by introducing electric and mechanical stimulation at an early stage.
The human trachea, or wind pipe, extends from the voice box to the lungs. Its tubular form provides an open airway for breathing and a moist lining that repels pathogens.
