Stem Cell BioGenerator to Help Repair Broken Hearts

NuVascular Technologies (Ashland, MA) has partnered with Worcester Polytechnic Institute and BioSurfaces, Inc. (Ashland, MA) to introduce the BioGenerator stem cell device for clinical applications. The device holds stem cells produced at Worcester from adult bone marrow cells. It can… Read more →

MiMedx pleased with FDA Draft Guidance on Minimal Manipulation of HCT/Ps

MiMedx Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDXG), the leading regenerative medicine company utilizing human amniotic tissue and patent-protected processes to develop and market advanced products and therapies for the Wound Care, Surgical, Orthopedic, Spinal, Sports Medicine, Ophthalmic and Dental sectors of healthcare,… Read more →

Meniscus regenerated with 3-D-printed implant

Columbia University Medical Center researchers have devised a way to replace the knee’s protective lining, called the meniscus, using a personalized 3D-printed implant, or scaffold, infused with human growth factors that prompt the body to regenerate the lining on its… Read more →

Scientists create lab-grown spinal cords

As regenerative medicine and stem cell technologies continue to progress, so the list of tissues and organs that can be grown from scratch – and potentially replaced – continues to grow. In the past few years, researchers have used stem… Read more →

Magnetically-directed nanoparticles could help heal broken bones

When a bone is severely broken in the human body, or a bone-fused prosthesis is implanted, a bone graft is also often required to ensure a solid mechanical repair. However, a graft that removes bone from another area of the… Read more →

Lung regeneration mechanism discovered

A research team led by Jackson Laboratory Professors Frank McKeon, Ph.D., and Wa Xian, Ph.D., reports on the role of certain lung stem cells in regenerating lungs damaged by disease.

The work, published Nov. 12 in the journal Nature, sheds… Read more →

Regenerative medicine may offer new standard of advanced treatment for foot and leg ulcers

These are exciting times for regenerative medicine. Unlike conventional medicines, the regenerative approach can potentially work to restore the lost functionality of tissues or organs—the major reason for intensive focus on research and development in the field. The global market… Read more →

World-first embryonic stem cell trial for the heart

The first embryonic stem (ES) cell trial for severe heart failure is launching now in Paris. The long-awaited trial comes after much preclinical cell work on more than 350 rats, 50 immunodeficient mice and 32 non-human primates. “After 20 years… Read more →

Converting skin cells directly into brain cells advances fight against Huntington’s disease

Few diseases are as terrifying as Huntington’s, an inherited genetic disorder that gradually saps away at sufferers’ muscle control and cognitive capacity until they die (usually some 20 or so years after initial symptoms). But scientists at Washington University School… Read more →
