Fighting arthritis: Researchers edit stem cells to fight inflammation

SMART cells, develop into cartilage cells that produce a biologic anti-inflammatory drug that could replace arthritic cartilage and simultaneously protect joints and other tissues from damage that occurs with chronic inflammation.

Stem cells and the art of giving

Madhu Srivastava/IANS

Our health scenario has undergone drastic changes over the past few decades. Is it not fair to say that given today`s lifestyles, finding someone who is completely fit and healthy is quite rare?

Stem cells from fat show promise for anti-ageing treatment

Stem cells from fat show promise for anti-ageing treatment

The researchers made the discovery after developing a new model to study chronological ageing of these cells.

Using vertebrate model to study diseases: Indian scientists discover hematopoietic stem cells in fruit fly

Using vertebrate model to study diseases: Indian scientists discover hematopoietic stem cells in fruit fly

They said the discovery in fruit fly has far-reaching implications for stem cell-based therapies for humans.

Need to increase pace of research in regenerative medicine'

India needs to increase the pace of research in regenerative medicine to come up to the global level, especially in the area of clinical trials and regulatory requirements, a doctor said on Saturday.
 

This new colour-coding tool may help track blood stem cells causing cancer

This new colour-coding tool may help track blood stem cells causing cancer

 A new colour-coding tool has been developed by scientists that can help them track live blood stem cells clones that plays a role in blood disorders and cancers like leukemia.

Vitamin treatment unlocks door to stem cell therapies

Ordinary adult cells, such as those in the skin or blood, could be artificially coerced in a culture dish to resemble embryos only a few days old, said study co-author Tim Hore of the University of Otago.

Stem cells injection could ward off glaucoma

The influx of cells regenerated the tiny, delicate patch of tissue known as the trabecular meshwork, which serves as a drain for the eyes to avoid fluid buildup.

Scientists grow human organs inside pigs to tackle organ shortage!

The embryos are being allowed to mature for 28 days in the sows before terminating the pregnancies for analysis.

Have scientists found the elixir of youth?

Researchers found that administering the vitamin nicotinamide riboside restores organs' regenerative capacities and delays ageing.

3D human heart tissue created from stem cells

Although there are existing techniques to make three-dimensional tissues from heart cells, the new method dramatically reduce the number of cells needed, making it an easier, cheaper, and more efficient system.

Human skin cells hold promise to treat glaucoma

 Using stem cells derived from human skin cells, US researchers have revealed that these can be turned into retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) -- the neurons that conduct visual information from the eye to the brain -- to prevent or cure glaucoma.

Lack of stem cells leads to repeat miscarriages: Study

The researchers examined tissue samples from the womb lining, donated by 183 women.

Crucial brain chemical made from human stem cells

Serotonin affects emotions, sleep, anxiety, depression, appetite, pulse and breathing. It also plays a role in serious psychiatric conditions like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression.

In a first, retinal nerve cells grown in lab

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have developed a method to efficiently turn human stem cells into retinal nerve cells that transmit visual signals from the eye to the brain.

New drug to help bones heal better, faster

Bone fractures are a big problem in society, especially in older people

First 'in womb' stem cell trial announced

The donated stem cells should provide the correct instructions for growing bone.

Recipe for a working mini-brain is here

 A team of US researchers has described how to make an inexpensive, working - but not thinking - miniature brain for drug testing, to test neural tissue transplants or to experiment with how stem cells work in the lab.
