Stem cell gene therapy could be key to treating Duchenne muscular dystrophy (UCLA & Cell Stem Cell)

Scientists at the UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research and Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at UCLA have developed a new approach that could eventually be used to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy. 45 more words

Regeneration: Stem cells make the bowel nervous (Nature)

In Hirschsprung disease, the enteric nervous system (ENS) is missing from the distal bowel. It emerges that postnatal transplantation of stem-cell-derived ENS precursors can prevent death in a mouse model of the disease. 11 more words

“Pandey, what is the collection till now?” asked the tired police inspector sitting in the night patrol vehicle.

“Just Rs. 1200, sir,” replied the constable in a desperate tone. 721 more words


Hydrogels can put stem cells to sleep (Phys.org & ACS Central Science)

Unlike normal cells, stem cells are pluripotent—they can become any cell type, which makes them powerful potential treatments for diseases such as diabetes, leukemia and age-related blindness. 56 more words

Engineers 3-D-print a new lifelike liver tissue for drug screening (ScienceDaily & PNAS)

A team led by engineers has 3-D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver’s sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling. 27 more words

Muscles on-a-chip provide insight into cardiac stem cell therapies (ScienceDaily & JCB)

Stem cell-derived heart muscle cells may fail to effectively replace damaged cardiac tissue because they don’t contract strongly enough, according to a new study. This may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials. 11 more words
