In utero stem cell transplants may replace riskier childhood transplants for multiple conditions – Medical Xpress

By LizaAVILA

Tippi MacKenzie, MD, a pediatric and fetal surgeon at UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital San Francisco, is the principal investigator for a clinical trial that will use in utero stem cell transplants to treat fetuses with an inherited disorder that restricts the bloods ability to carry oxygen to vital organs. Credit: Cindy Chew UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in San Francisco and Oakland will pioneer stem cell transplants for a uniquely challenging patient population: second-trimester fetuses stricken with a potentially fatal disease. The two hospitals are enrolling 10 pregnant women in the first phase of a clinical trial to treat fetuses with an inherited disorder that restricts the blood’s ability to carry oxygen to vital organs

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.

Nanoparticle Advance Could Yield Multi-Purpose Treatments – Drug Discovery & Development

By JoanneRUSSELL25

A team of scientists found a way to create a novel drug delivery system for an array of different conditions. Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center developed a biomedical tool that harnesses nanoparticles to deliver transient gene changes to specified cells. This system extends the therapeutic potential of messenger RNA (mRNA).

Brain cell replacement for Parkinson’s boosted by monkey study – The San Diego Union-Tribune

By JoanneRUSSELL25

A brain cell replacement therapy reduced Parkinsons disease symptoms in monkeys, Japanese researchers report in a study released Wednesday. The positive result boosts prospects to test the therapy in people. The goal is to implant neurons derived from stem cells into the brains of Parkinsons patients, a project pursued by scientists in San Diego, New York, Britain and Sweden as well as in Japan

Cell Therapy Can Be Fast and Easy: Just Add mRNA Nanocarriers – Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News

By raymumme

Essentially, nanoparticles carried a gene-editing tool to T cells of the immune system that snipped out their natural T-cell receptors, and then was paired with genes encoding a chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR, a synthetic molecule designed to attack cancer. Next, nanoparticles were targeted to blood stem cells and equipped with mRNA that enabled the stem cells to multiply and replace blood cancer cells with healthy cells when used in bone marrow transplants. Finally, nanoparticles were targeted to CAR T cells and equipped with Foxo1 mRNA, which signals the anticancer T cells to develop into a type of “memory” cell that is more aggressive and destroys tumor cells more effectively and maintains antitumor activity longer.
