The ethics of medical progress

By daniellenierenberg

A new method of producing stem cells is being described as a "game-changing" scientific breakthrough. It is said that the research, carried out by scientists in Japan, could hail a new era of personalised medicine, offering hope to sufferers of diseases such as stroke, heart disease and spinal cord injuries. The scientists bathed blood cells in a weak acidic solution for half an hour, which made the adult cells shrink and go back to their embryonic stem cell state

‘Stem cells’ created in less than 30 minutes in ‘groundbreaking’ discovery

By Sykes24Tracey

Professor Austin Smith of Cambridge University, writing in the Journal Nature said the new cells could be seen as a blank slate from which any cell could emerge depending on its environment. Remarkably, instead of triggering cell death or tumour growth as might be expected, a new cell state emerges that exhibits and unprecedented potential for differentiation into every possible cell type, he said.

Start of stem-cell study offers hope to patients with spinal-cord injuries

By Sykes24Tracey

CTVNews.ca Staff Published Friday, January 10, 2014 4:33PM EST Last Updated Friday, January 10, 2014 11:42PM EST A team of doctors at the University of Calgary has, for the first time in North America, successfully performed a stem cell transplant in a spinal cord injury patient, a procedure that could offer a glimmer of hope to patients whose injuries have long been considered untreatable. The doctors injected the neural stem cells into the spine of a 29-year-old paraplegic, who will now be monitored to determine whether implanting those cells is safe

Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Status | Stem Cell …

By LizaAVILA

Till June of 2013, our department has treated 1508 patients with sequela of spinal cord injury, including 713 patients with cervical cord injury, 562 patients with thoracic cord injury (do not include T12-L1), 51 patients with both cervical cord and thoracic cord injury, and 182 patients with thoracic and lumbar cord injury (mainly T12-L1). We invented CT-guided intraspinal injection in 2006 and stem cell transplantation via endovascular intervention in 2011 to treat sequela of spinal cord injury, which apparently improved the treatment effect. Form the end of 2011 to now, the improvement rate of patients with sequela of cervical cord injury is 91.9%; 82.4% improvement rate of patients with sequela of thoracic cord injury (do not include T12-L1); 70.3% improvement rate of patient with sequela of thoracic and lumbar cord injury (mainly T12-L1); the total improve rate of patients with sequela of spinal cord injury is 87.4%

San Diego’s top science stories of 2013

By JoanneRUSSELL25

Artist's rendering of planet Kepler-62f, which NASA says "orbits (its sun) every 267 days and is only 40 percent larger than Earth, making it the smallest exoplanet known in the habitable zone of another star." SDSU helped confirm that the planets are in the habitable zone. Scientists in San Diego experienced one of their most productive and, in some cases, dangerous years ever in 2013, with breakthroughs and adventures that involved everything from the tiniest forms of life on Earth to the discovery of possibly habitable planets orbiting intriquing stars in a distant constellation. Heres a look at the five top science stories, and a list of noteworthy events, advances and achievements.

Promising Stem Cell Research for Spinal Cord Injuries …

By daniellenierenberg

The complex world of Stephen Davies, PhD, is populated by nerve cells and fibers, star-shaped cells, precursor cells, and proteins. But the work he does with it all has one simple goal: to give hope to the victims of spinal cord injuries, and, ultimately, a wide array of neurological disorders that cause misery and exact an enormous individual and societal price. Davies lab in Research Complex 1 on the Anschutz Medical Campus has attracted attention throughout the worldwide medical research community
