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 →

Researchers identify how cells get their orders to heal wounds

When you cut on your finger or scrape your knee, cells rush to the wound and repair or replace the damaged tissue. But how exactly this works – in particular how certain cells become “leaders” in the process – has… Read more →

Wisdom teeth stem cells can transform into cells that could treat corneal scarring

Stem cells from the dental pulp of wisdom teeth can be coaxed to turn into cells of the eye’s cornea and could one day be used to repair corneal scarring due to infection or injury, according to researchers at the… Read more →

First patients treated with Orthocell’s tendon repair therapy in Hong Kong

Regenerative medicine company Orthocell Limited has announced it has expanded its presence in Asia with the first patients treated with its world-leading tendon repair therapy in Hong Kong.

The two patients underwent the Ortho-ATITM therapy last Friday, performed by respected… Read more →

Using stem cells to grow new hair

In a new study from Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham), researchers have used human pluripotent stem cells to generate new hair. The study represents the first step toward the development of a cell-based treatment for people with hair loss. In… Read more →

Cardiac regeneration strategies need to be based on severity of heart injury

A new study by researchers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has shown that neonatal mouse hearts have varying regenerative capacities depending upon the severity of injury. Using cryoinjury – damaging the heart through exposure to extreme cold in order to… Read more →

Research Findings Have Implications for Regenerating Damaged Nerve Cells

Two new studies involving the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia have identified a unique molecule that not only gobbles up bad cells, but also has the ability to repair damaged nerve cells.
