There are currently more than 180 clinical trials ongoing in various countries with regards to using stem cells in treating diabetes. One biotech company, Global Institute of Stem Cell Therapy and Research (GIOSTAR), a leader in regenerative technologies, has announced that they are in the process of approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to conduct type 2 diabetes ...

Typically, embryonic stem cells have the potential to differentiate into any type of cell in the human body. Once differentiated though, the newly minted somatic cells live out the rest of their days as that specific cell type and never again have the capacity to differentiate. Or so the theory goes. A new study published  in Cell Reports, a team led by researchers from the University...

Researchers from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have discovered a link between a protein and the ability of human blood stem cells to self-renew. In a study published in the journal Nature, the team reports that activating the protein causes blood stem cells to self-renew at least twelvefold in laboratory conditions. Multiplying blood stem cells in conditions outside t...

New research  by the Carnegie Institution of Washington reveals the existence of tendon stem cells that could potentially be harnessed to improve tendon healing and even to avoid surgery. The buildup of scar tissue often makes recovery from torn rotator cuffs, jumper’s knee, and other tendon injuries a painful, challenging process, often leading to secondary tendon ruptures. Carnegi...

A new study by Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center shows that stem cell therapy helps hearts recover from a heart attack, although not for the biological reasons originally proposed two decades ago that today are the basis of ongoing clinical trials. This is the conclusion of a Nov. 27 study in Nature that shows an entirely different way that heart stem cells help the injured heart n...

An innovative biosensor technology developed by a Rutgers-led team has created better that may help lead to safe stem cell therapies for treating Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases and other neurological disorders. The new technology, which features a unique graphene and gold-based platform and high-tech imaging, monitors the fate of stem cells by detecting genet...

University of California researchers have developed a breakthrough stem cell therapy to improve memory and prevent seizures in mice following traumatic brain injury. In the research, the University of California (Irvine)  team transplanted embryonic progenitor cells (a specialized type of stem cells) capable of generating inhibitory interneurons, a specific type of nerve cell that controls th...

A new clinical study from Northwestern Medicine and Mayo Clinic has shown that hematopoietic stem cell transplant is able to reverse a debilitating neurological disease formerly classified as a rare subtype of multiple sclerosis (MS) known as neuromyelitis optica (NMO). Most of the patients who underwent the stem cell protocol,  maintained treatment success 5 years after the transplant and we...

A genetic linked disease called Pelizaeus-Merzbacher that leaves neurons without their myelin coating basically has devastating consequences for boys as it’s X-linked. Dr Nalin Gupta, a professor of neurological surgery and pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) in a phone interview with Thailand Medical news commented. “These children have severe developmenta...
