Putting ‘Super’ in Natural Killer Cells

Putting ‘Super’ in Natural Killer Cells Deleting an inhibitory gene in natural killer cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells is found to boost their anti-tumor activity and persistence; researchers now seek to develop a clinical therapy. Read more...

Scientists Model Human Stem Cells to Recognize Degeneration in Glaucoma

Scientists Model Human Stem Cells to Recognize Degeneration in Glaucoma In excess of 3 million Americans have glaucoma, a genuine eye condition causing vision misfortune. Utilizing human immature microorganism models, analysts at Indiana University School of Medicine discovered they could break down shortfalls inside cells harmed by glaucoma, with the

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Turned Into Extra-Ruthless Natural Killer Cells

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Turned Into Extra-Ruthless Natural Killer Cells Natural killer cells don’t have to be natural born natural killer cells. In fact, mass produced natural killer cells—that is, natural killer (NK) cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)—can be more persistent, more effective killers, reported scientists based

Three People With Inherited Diseases Successfully Treated With CRISPR

Three People With Inherited Diseases Successfully Treated With CRISPR Two people with beta thalassaemia and one with sickle cell disease no longer require blood transfusions, which are normally used to treat severe forms of these inherited diseases, after their bone marrow stem cells were gene-edited with CRISPR.
