Stem Cells Reprogrammed without Genetic Modification – Technology Networks

By LizaAVILA

A discovery, several years in the making, by a University at Buffalo research team has proven that adult skin cells can be converted into neural crest cells (a type of stem cell) without any genetic modification, and that these stem cells can yield other cells that are present in the spinal cord and the brain. The applications could be very significant, from studying genetic diseases in a dish to generating possible regenerative cures from the patients own cells

3 women blinded in stem cell clinical trial – AOL

By admin

Three women suffering from a degenerative eye condition were blindedlikely permanentlyin a clinical trial for stem cell therapy, according to a report published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. The women, who were all between the ages of 72 and 88, had a common medical condition called age-related macular degeneration, in which cells in the retina begin to die off, resulting in spotty or blurred vision. Researchers suspected stem cells derived from the patient's own body could regenerate some of the cells lost to the disease.

Stem Cells Fiercely Abide by Innate Developmental Timing, Study Shows – Bioscience Technology

By LizaAVILA

The mystery of what controls the range of developmental clocks in mammals -- from 22 months for an elephant to 12 days for a opossum -- may lie in the strict time-keeping of pluripotent stem cells for each unique species. Developmental clocks are of high importance to regenerative medicine, since many cells types take long periods to grow to maturity, limiting their usefulness to human therapies

The mystery of what controls the range of developmental clocks in mammals -- from 22 months for an elephant to 12 days for an opossum -- may lie in the strict time-keeping of pluripotent stem cells for each unique species. Developmental clocks are of high importance to regenerative medicine, since many cell types take long periods to grow to maturity, limiting their usefulness to human therapies. The regenerative biology team at the Morgridge Institute for Research, led by stem cell pioneer and University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor James Thomson, is studying whether stem cell differentiation rates can be accelerated in the lab and made available to patients faster.
