Gut viruses tied to potentially deadly complication of bone marrow transplant – Medical Xpress

By LizaAVILA

Credit: University of California, San Francisco A virus hiding quietly in the gut may trigger the onset of a severe complication known as graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) in patients who receive bone marrow transplants, according to a new study led by scientists at UC San Francisco and Saint-Louis Hospital in Paris, France. GvHD affects up to 60 percent of patients who undergo bone marrow stem-cell transplants, and kills about half of those affected. After transplants, to prevent a recipient's immune cells from laying siege to unfamiliar donor cells and rejecting them, clinicians often use drugs to suppress the immune response

CDI ditches move to Verona – Madison.com

By JoanneRUSSELL25

Cellular Dynamics International, the stem cell company founded by UW-Madison stem cell pioneer James Thomson, is backing off on moving its headquarters to a big, new building in Verona and will stay in Madison, at least for now, as it prepares to push forward with its first potential stem cell-based treatment in early 2018. CDI president Kaz Hirao said Thursday the company is shelving plans to shift operations to a $40 million, 133,700-square-foot building that was to be built for CDI on Kettle Moraine Trail in Verona. The building was expected to house 280 employees, with so-called clean rooms, quality-control labs, processing rooms and offices.

High-tech solutions top the list in the fight against eye disease – Engadget

By daniellenierenberg

Cataracts are the single leading cause of blindness worldwide, afflicting roughly 42 percent of the global population, including more than 22 million Americans. The disease, which causes cloudy patches to form on the eye's normally clear lens, can require surgery if left untreated. That's why Google's DeepMind AI division has teamed with the UK's National Health Service (NHS) and Moorfields Eye Hospital to train a neural network that will help doctors diagnose early stage cataracts.

By Sykes24Tracey

SINGAPORE The use of stem cell treatment to repair liver cirrhosis, or hardening of the liver, will be tested in a clinical trial here involving 46 patients and costing S$2.6 million. The four-year study, which was launched yesterday, came amid a growing waiting list in Singapore for a liver transplant, which is currently the only cure for patients with end-stage liver cirrhosis. Conducted by a multi-centre team from several restructured hospitals here, the study is led by the National University Hospital (NUH).
