Stem cell clinical trials are multiplying

By Bradley J. Fikes | 5:02 p.m. Oct. 3, 2015 It’s been a long wait for patients hoping for stem cell science to be turned into new treatments. After years of frustration at the incremental progress, stem cell therapies at last are streaming into clinical trials -- in San Diego, nationwide and across the world. In

Exploring the Future of Eye Transplantation ~ July 29, 2015 “The potential advantage of the eye transplant is you’re taking a whole eye with all its components, especially the retina,” Dr. Vijay Gorantla said. Although corneal transplants are routinely performed today, whole-eye transplantation has remained an unrealized goal in vision restoration because of challenges related to immune rejection and reestablishing

New material forges the way for ‘stem cell factories’

(Nanowerk News) July 22, 2015 - If you experience a major heart attack the damage could cost you around five billion heart cells. Future stem cell treatments will require this number and more to ensure those cells are replaced and improve your chances of survival. Experts at The University of Nottingham have discovered the first

VascuBone – a toolbox for customised vascularised bone implants

June 9th, 2015 The EU project VascuBone was coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB and has reached the end of a 5-year funding period. In March 2015, the partners of this international research consortium met at the Würzburg Congress Centre to discuss the results of this successful project. The focus

Planarian Regeneration Model Discovered by Artificial Intelligence

Robot science does more than just crunch numbers. By Tufts University | June 05, 2015 DIAGRAM COURTESY OF TUFTS UNIVERSITYMEDFORD/SOMERVILLE, Mass. (June 4, 2015)--An artificial intelligence system has for the first time reverse-engineered the regeneration mechanism of planaria—the small worms whose extraordinary power to regrow body parts has made them a research model in human

Stem cell injection could mend broken hearts

  A particular type of stem cell helped to repair and recover damaged heart muscle when tested in mice. Picture: Lisa Ferguson LIZZY BUCHAN Tuesday 19 May 2015 A PIONEERING stem-cell injection could help to repair the currently irreversible damage caused by a heart attack, researchers have said. Work has been done over the past ten

UM stem cell research on heart may go national

Written by Lidia Dinkova on March 18, 2015 University of Miami stem cell research on generating healthy heart tissue in heart attack survivors is on track to be tested across the US. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, part of federal medical research arm the National Institutes of Health, is to fund the $8

Behind the scenes of the world’s first commercial stem-cell therapy
