A Brisbane, Australia, mother of two who was undergoing a stem cell treatment in Russia has died. Family members and friends say the treatment did not cause her death, nor do they discourage others from seeking it.
Scientists are one step closer to creating a viable cell replacement therapy for multiple sclerosis from a patient's own cells after a New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute team generated induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells lines from skin samples of patients with primary prog
A new clinical trial will begin in Europe in September to test a fetal stem cell transplant on Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients.
Researchers have discovered that a gene could be key to the development of stem cells—cells that are essential to regenerative medicine as they can potentially save millions of lives by morphing into practically any cell in the body.
A new study has revealed a way to alleviate the learning and memory deficits caused by apoE4, the most important genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, improving cognition to normal levels in aged mice.
A new minimally invasive gene transplant procedure can change unspecialized stem cells in the heart into “biological pacemaker” cells that keep the heart steadily beating.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) reports on its website this month that results from a clinical study in people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who were treated with a combination of two drugs in an attempt to improve their beta cell survival and stimulate beta cell regeneration are so
Researchers have created a way to develop personalized gene therapies for patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a leading cause of vision loss.
Gene-editing techniques being used on stem cells do not increase the overall occurrence of mutations in the cells, according to a new study by scientists at Salk Institute.
