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

Umbilical cord blood: Cord blood: Big business, small benefits … – Times of India

By admin

NEW DELHI: Private banking of umbilical cord blood is a big business running parallel to childbirth in big hospitals, but is it worth the cost? While companies offering the facility for a few thousand rupees claim it can be used to treat conditions ranging from cerebral palsy to diabetes, health experts and doctors disagree. They say stem cell transplantation for treatment is limited to hereditary or genetic conditions, specifically blood disorders

Severely hyperbranched vascular network surrounding the spinal cord (red dotted box) of zebrafish embryo blood vessels in white. A team of researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) shake at the foundations of a dogma of cell biology. By detailed series of experiments, they proved that blood vessel growth is modulated by neurons and not, as assumed so far, through a control mechanism of the vessel cells among each other

Spinal Cord Injury and Stem Cell Therapy

By admin

After a spinal cord injury, many of the nerve fibers at the injury site lose their insulating layer of myelin. As a result, the fibers are no longer able to properly transmit signals between the brain and the spinal cord contributing to paralysis. Unfortunately, the spinal cord lacks the ability to restore these lost myelin-forming cells after trauma

Hype versus hope: Deciphering news about stem cell breakthroughs – Genetic Literacy Project

By admin

For many people suffering from disabling conditions, such as Parkinsons disease, spinal injury and paralysis, heart disease, and even cancer, announcements in the press around breakthroughs in stem cell research undoubtedly bring hope. Keeping the balance between hope and hype is a difficult one, particularly when there are vulnerable and suffering people relying on the hope medical research offers. As Australian of the Year, Emeritus Professor Alan Mackay-Sim, stated in his acceptance speech, there are now many clinical trials being performed in Australia and around the globe, to determine whether the delivery of certain types of cells, including some grown from stem cells, into the spinal column can allow patients with spinal cord injury to regain function
