A Little Acid Turns Mouse Blood Into Brain, Heart And Stem …

By Sykes24Tracey

The heart beats in a mouse embryo grown with stems cells made from blood. Back in 1958, a young biologist at Cornell University made a stunning discovery. He took a single cell from a carrot and then mixed it with some coconut milk

Stem cell breakthrough: Scientists create embryonic-type …

By NEVAGiles23

MAURICIO LIMA/AFP/Getty Images Scientists were able to reprogram mature stem cells to revert back to an embryonic state, a breakthrough that could make stem cell research easier and less expensive. In experiments that could open a new era in stem cell biology, scientists have found a cheap and easy way to reprogram mature cells from mice back into an embryonic-like state that allowed them to generate many types of tissue. The research, described as game-changing by experts in the field, suggests human cells could in future be reprogrammed by the same technique, offering a simpler way to replace damaged cells or grow new organs for sick and injured people.

Stem cells tested to repair dead heart muscle

By admin

(U-T San Diego) -- A new stem cell treatment may help heart attack patients do something once thought medically impossible regenerate dead heart muscle. Scripps Health in La Jolla is one of three centers testing the therapy from Capricor, a Los Angeles biotech company. The cardiac stem cells are meant to boost the heart's natural ability to perform minor repairs

More Efficient Way to Grow Heart Muscle from Stem Cells Could Yield New Regenerative Therapies

By JoanneRUSSELL25

Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 09, 2013 Generating new cardiac muscle from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and/or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) could fulfill the demand for therapeutic applications and drug testing. The production of a similar population of these cells remains a major limitation, but in a study just published in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, researchers now believe they have found a way to do this.

Space Station made accessible for stem cell research

By LizaAVILA

Washington, Dec 7 : NASA and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) are enabling research aboard the International Space Station that could lead to new stem cell-based therapies for medical conditions faced on Earth and in space. Scientists will take advantage of the space station's microgravity environment to study the properties of non-embryonic stem cells. NASA is interested in space-based cell research because it is seeking ways to combat the negative health effects astronauts face in microgravity, including bone loss and muscle atrophy
