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 →
