Regulating Bone Marrow Protein can Improve Stem Cell Transplants – CMFE News (press release) (blog)

By JoanneRUSSELL25

A recent study has identified a key protein capable of regulating the process of new blood cells, including immune cells, which can potentially improve bone and stem cell transplants for donors as well as recipients. The researchers at Technical University of Dresden, Germany, led by the University of Pennsylvania, USA, found that a protein known as Del-1 occupies a key role in the process of hematopoiesis. In addition, researchers inferred that the protein regulator may be modulated to act as potential drug targets in patients affected by certain blood cancers types

Chemo-Boosting Drug Discovered for Leukemia – Futurism

By NEVAGiles23

In BriefResearchers have discovered that acute myeloid leukemia causes leaking from the bone marrow that interferes with chemotherapy delivery. If chemotherapy for AML can be used together with drugs to treat this problem, outcomes may improve dramatically.

This Week In Neuroscience News 8/31/17 – ReliaWire

By Sykes24Tracey

This weeks roundup of recent developments in neuroscience kicks off with a study from MIT, where engineers have devised a way to automate the process of monitoring neurons in a living brain using a computer algorithm that analyzes microscope images and guides a robotic arm to the target cell. In the above image, a pipette guided by a robotic arm approaches a neuron identified with a fluorescent stain. Neurosurgeons at the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application, Kyoto University

Somatic SNAFUCan a Few Mutant Microglia Cause Neurodegenerative Disease? – Alzforum

By Sykes24Tracey

01 Sep 2017 A paper in the September 1 Nature claims a cadre of rogue microglia are all it takes to orchestrate neurodegeneration. Researchers led by Frederic Geissmann and Omar Abdel-Wahab of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and Marco Prinz of the University of Freiburg in Germany, induced a somatic mutation in about 10 percent of microglia that switched on ERK kinase signaling

iPS Cell-based Neuron Therapy Benefits Monkeys With Parkinson’s – ReliaWire

By JoanneRUSSELL25

Monkeys with Parkinsons disease symptoms show significant improvement over two years after being transplanted neurons prepared from human induced pluropontent stem cells, scientists at the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA), Kyoto University, report. One of the last steps before treating patients with an experimental cell therapy for the brain is confirmation that the therapy works in monkeys. Parkinsons disease degenerates a specific type of cells in the brain known as dopaminergic (DA) neurons

Human Stem Cells Fight Parkinson’s Disease in Monkeys – Scientific American

By admin

LONDON (Reuters)Scientists have successfully used reprogrammed stem cells to restore functioning brain cells in monkeys, raising hopes the technique could be used in future to help patients with Parkinsons disease. Since Parkinsons is caused by a lack of dopamine made by brain cells, researchers have long hoped to use stem cells to restore normal production of the neurotransmitter chemical. Now, for the first time, Japanese researchers have shown that human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) can be administered safely and effectively to treat primates with symptoms of the debilitating disease.

| Marlowe Hood | PARIS (AFP) Lab monkeys with Parkinsons symptoms regained significant mobility after neurons made from human stem cells were inserted into their brains, researchers reported Wednesday in a study hailed as groundbreaking. The promising results were presented as the last step before human clinical trials, perhaps as early as next year, the studys senior author, Jun Takahashi, a professor at Kyoto University, told AFP.

Bacterial Infection Stresses Blood Stem Cells – Asian Scientist Magazine

By LizaAVILA

AsianScientist (Aug. 30, 2017) – In a study published in Cell Stem Cell, scientists in Japan and Switzerland have found that bacterial infections can stress blood-producing stem cells in the bone marrow and reduce their ability to self-replicate. When a person becomes infected with a virus or bacteria, immune cells in the blood or lymph react to the infection.
