2015

Stem cells have been at the centre of one of the most significant scientific debates to have taken place in the last 50 years.

In the early 1960s, Canadian scientists James Till and Ernest McCulloch published research that proved the existence of stem cells. These are unspecialised cells that have the ability to differentiate into other cells and to self-regenerate. Their ability to differentiate gives them the capacity to develop into other cell types.

In the past few decades, our understanding of the potential that stem cells hold as a curative or preventative sol......

THE PROMISE OF STEM CELL THERAPY

2015

A study at Harvard University, showed that the stem cell based therapy has again stood up to its promise of curing deadly diseases, which are troubling the mankind since last so many years. The study is all about the cancer and how stem cell based treatment can be effective in removing the unwanted cancerous cells from the brain and regenerate new non cancerous functional cells to prolong the life of a patient.

The human organs are made up of trillions of functional cells, working 24/7 in order to perform various tasks that have been assi......

Some Stem Cells Heal Differently, Researchers Said

2015

Forget the traditional view that certain stem cells will heal by becoming replacement cells for damaged tissue. The real power of these cells comes from their ability to regulate the immune response and spark the body’s own regenerative machinery, leading researchers said.

The key will be what kind of cells are given and when they are used.

Georgia Regents Univer­si­ty last week held a Regen­erative Medicine and Cell­ular Therapy Research Symposium that attracted speakers from across the country.

Stem cell transplants are more effective for people with severe cases of multiple sclerosis (MS) than mitoxantrone, according to a study published online in Neurology.  

A multifaceted team of researchers examined 21 patients with MS  whose disabilities had increased during the past year in order to assess the effects of intense immunosuppression followed by stem cell transplants versus mitoxantrone on disease activity. The participants were taking first line treatments and were at average disability levels. They needed cane......

2015

It was a normal rainy morning, almost 8 am! Still the roads are full with buses, cars and people. Everybody was rushing to reach to his destination. No one has time to even look besides him. As usual, I was starting my morning with my breakfast at this time.

I was seating on my favourite chair, adjoining the window! I was looking down, on that busy road, the tallest skyscraper right in front of my window, a beautiful garden and off course, enjoying the beauty of a mountain, clouds and rain! I was sitting alone and my waitress was feeding my usual breakfast to me. A ......

Drugs Stimulate Body's Own Stem Cells To Replace Brain Cells Lost In Multiple Sclerosis

A pair of topical medicines already alleviating skin conditions each may prove to have another, even more compelling use: instructing stem cells in the brain to reverse damage caused by multiple sclerosis.

Led by researchers at Case Western Reserve, a multi-institutional team used a new discovery approach to identify drugs that could activate mouse and human brain stem cells in the laboratory. The two most potent drugs - one that currently treats athlete's foot, and the other, eczema - were capable of stimulating the regeneration of damaged brain cells and rever......

Researchers at a Brazilian university, taken a step closer in treating a kind of neurodegenerative disease, buy viagra The Parkinson’s disease; by implanting stem cell generated neurons in the murine brain. The team has observed that the neurons, which are engrafted could able to transform into dopamine producing neurons, which were able to survive and be functional for as long as 15 months from the date of implantation.

Parkinsons is the deadly neurodegenerative disease, affecting more than 10 million people worldwide. The primary reason for the onse......

For centuries, drugstore farmers have selectively bred animals and plants in order to produce hybrids without understanding the mechanism of inheritance.

Then, there in the 1800s, drugstore Gregor Mendel, a European monk and a plant breeder, concluded that certain plant characteristics were dominant in inheritance while others were recessive, in the process confirming the presence of an inheritance factor.

In the 1950s, the inheritance factor emerged once again, this time in a new range of inflammatory diseases with shared pathology of deficient collagen in the connectiv......

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Rachel Taylor was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 14 years ago. "It was terrifying. It was like having a wet, heavy blanket put over your life. I was active. I was a runner. I was outdoors playing, and over the course of a few months, I couldn't figure out why I couldn't keep up" Taylor recalled. Taylor knew what was wrong. She'd been working with the MS Society bike rides for years.

Taylor is in remission now, but she is still thrilled with Tom Lane, professor of pathology at the University of Utah’s stem cel......

Parkinson's disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects your movement. Nearly 10 million people across the globe have been affected by this disease. The basic treatments that the doctors use to cure this include medications and electrical implants in the brain, which causes severe adverse effects over time and fail to prevent disease progression.

But now Brazilian researchers at D'OR Institute for Research and Education (IDOR) and Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) have taken an important step toward using the implantation of stem c......

Two different fat grafting approaches — one with fat and stromal vascular fraction, the other with expanded mesenchymal stem cells — both modify the pattern of the dermis and have a skin rejuvenation effect, according to a study in the April issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

"… this is the first study presenting clinical evidence showing skin rejuvenation after fat grafting and highlighting the anatomical and structural changes that are the basis of this rejuvenation, " the study’s lead author Gino Rigotti, M.D., of Clin......

Seated at the head of a table for 12 with a view of the city’s soaring skyline, Peter Thiel was deep in conversation with his guests, eclectic scientists whose research was considered radical, even heretical.

It was 2004 and Thiel had recently made a tidy fortune selling PayPal, which he co-founded, to eBay. He had spent what he wanted on himself — a posh penthouse suite at the Four Seasons Hotel and a silver Ferrari — and was now soliciting ideas to do good with his money.
