Protein enables scientists to convert skin to blood vessels – Lab News

By raymumme

A molecular switch has been identified that converts skin cells into cells found in blood vessels, raising hopes of aiding heart disease sufferers. This technique boosts levels of an enzyme that keeps cells young and could also potentially help cells avoid ageing as they are grown in the lab. Although this technique has been used before, this is the first time it has been understood by scientists.

Burn victims treated with amazing gun which sprays them with stem cells and makes skin grow – The Sun

By JoanneRUSSELL25

The newtechnique involves isolating and spraying the patient's own skin stem cells on the burn wounds BURNS victims are being treated with an amazing gun which sprays them with stem cells and makes skin rapidly grow. Treatment for people with extensive burns is a painful process and can often take weeks or months as surgeons take large sheets of skin from elsewhere on the body and graft it onto the affected area with the prospect of permanent scars a possibility.

How ‘smart’ stem cells could lead to arthritis vaccine – Futurity: Research News

By Sykes24Tracey

Researchers have modified mouse stem cells to combat the kind of inflammation that arthritis and other conditions cause. The stem cells may one day be used in a vaccine that would fight arthritis and other chronic inflammation conditions in humans, a new paper suggests. Such stem cells, known as SMART cells (Stem cells Modified for Autonomous Regenerative Therapy), develop into cartilage cells that produce a biologic anti-inflammatory drug that, ideally, will replace arthritic cartilage and simultaneously protect joints and other tissues from damage that occurs with chronic inflammation

Skin stem cells used to generate new brain cells

By Sykes24Tracey

April 25, 2017 Credit: University of California, Irvine Using human skin cells, University of California, Irvine neurobiologists and their colleagues have created a method to generate one of the principle cell types of the brain called microglia, which play a key role in preserving the function of neural networks and responding to injury and disease. The finding marks an important step in the use of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for targeted approaches to better understand and potentially treat neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Researchers Invent Stem Cell Capable of Becoming an Entire Embryo – Futurism

By raymumme

A New Type of Stem Cell While much has been gleaned about the power of stem cells over the last few decades, researchers from the Salk Institute and Peking Universityin China recently found out theres plenty left to discover and invent. Nature, it seems, will always keep you guessing. In a study published in the journal Cell, the team of researchers revealed they had succeeded in creating a new kind of stem cell thats capable of becoming any type of cell in the human body.
