Natural reparative capacity of teeth elucidated

Researchers at Inserm and Paris Descartes University have just taken an important step in research on stem cells and dental repair. They have managed to isolate dental stem cell lines and to describe the natural mechanism by which they repair… Read more →

New study describes way to regenerate lung tissue after injury

A new collaborative study describes a way that lung tissue can regenerate after injury. The team found that lung tissue has more dexterity in repairing tissue than once thought. Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of… Read more →

Researchers: Plucking Of Hair Stimulates Regeneration Of Follicles And Hair Growth

Latest research has revealed that plucking hair out in a certain pattern can stimulate follicles and make thinning hair grow thick. The conclusion has been drawn based on an experiment performed on mice, in which researchers were able to stimulate… Read more →

Nylon: the key to sustainable bone tissue regeneration?

Polymer-coated nylon may offer the perfect scaffold material for the regeneration of bone tissue, according to a recent paper in Materials Letters.

Did you know that there are more people in the world aged 60 and over than there are… Read more →

Amniotic stem cells demonstrate healing potential

Rice Univ. and Texas Children’s Hospital scientists are using stem cells from amniotic fluid to promote the growth of robust, functional blood vessels in healing hydrogels.

In new experiments, the lab of bioengineer Jeffrey Jacot combined versatile amniotic stem cells… Read more →

Prototype ‘nanoneedles’ generate new blood vessels in mice

Scientists have developed tiny nanoneedles that have successfully prompted parts of the body to generate new blood vessels, in a trial in mice.

The researchers, from Imperial College London and Houston Methodist Research Institute in the USA, hope their nanoneedle… Read more →

Stem cell treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee may help rebuild lost cartilage

Recent studies employing adult stem cells obtained from bone marrow and fat have been used in patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee. Results have indicated not only symptomatic improvement but also suggest that cartilage healing and regeneration may be… Read more →

Team finds key to making neurons from stem cells

A research team at UC San Francisco has discovered an RNA molecule called Pnky that can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells. The research, led by neurosurgeon Daniel A. Lim, M.D., Ph.D., and published… Read more →

New approach to improve cardiac regeneration

The heart tissue of mammals has limited capacity to regenerate after an injury such as a heart attack, in part due to the inability to reactivate a cardiac muscle cell and proliferation program. Recent studies have indicated a low level… Read more →

Cancer drug promotes neuronal regeneration after spinal cord injury

Damage to the spinal cord rarely heals because the injured nerve cells fail to regenerate. The regrowth of their long nerve fibers is hindered by scar tissue and molecular processes inside the nerves. An international team of researchers led by… Read more →
