Stem Cell Protein Can Sensitize Radiotherapy for Brain Tumors in Children

The malignant brain tumor type medulloblastoma can become resistant to therapy which can cause relapse. Researchers at Uppsala University have discovered a certain protein that makes tumor cells resting and insensitive to radiation treatment. The research group hopes that the results could eventually lead to better treatments for children that have the highest risk to […]

A Team Use Stem Cells to Make Human Adrenal Gland

Adrenal glands , also known as suprarenal glands, are two small organs that sit on top of each kidney. The adrenal glands make different types of hormones you need to stay alive and healthy. Hormones are chemicals that travel in your bloodstream and control how different parts of your body work. The adrenal glands make […]

Stem-Cells Therapy for Skin Regeneration in Deep Sun-Burns

Mesenchymal stem cells have been used extensively in skin therapies, because they have a broad paracrine action on dermal cells; they stimulate angiogenesis; they protect other cells from the peroxide-mediated damage; and also modulate inflammation, pain, and immune tolerance.The use of adipose-derived stem cells in skin has been described in diverse clinical studies, with satisfactory […]

Stem Cell Therapy Can Reset of Immune System in Multiple Sclerosis

Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (aHSCT) has shown great potential in subjects with multiple sclerosis (MS). Previous work showed a slow return of naïve T cells after aHSCT. However, the dynamics of new and surviving T cells after aHSCT remains to be elucidated.  Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (aHSCT) is a highly effective treatment of […]

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Help in Liver Diseases?

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) therapy is showing potential therapeutic effects on liver function improvement in patients with chronic liver disease and acute chronic liver disease (ACLD). These diseases are mainly caused by alcoholic cirrhosis , high fat blood levels, autoimmune disease or a viral infection, among others. Clinical studies have found that allogeneic BM-MSCs are […]

Stem Cell Study Provide New Information of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a syndrome resulting from exposure to real or threatened serious injury or sexual assault. The signs and symptoms of PTSD appear to arise from complex interactions of psychological and neurobiological factors. Studies have found alterations in the amygdala, prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, and anterior cingulate, and corpus callosum as well as […]

Stem Cell Therapy for Lung Conditions

The lung is a highly complex organ; it is responsible for respiration but it also acts as a barrier to exterior pathogens and pollutants. It’s composed of over forty different cell types that make up the three major pulmonary regions: tracheobronchial, intralobar airway, and alveolar. The adult lung is a highly quiescent organ; however, after […]

First Stem Cell Treatment for Spina Bifida

Spina bifida, also known as myelomeningocele, occurs when spinal tissue fails to fuse properly during the early stages of pregnancy. The birth defect can lead to a range of lifelong cognitive, mobility, urinary and bowel disabilities. It affects 1,500 to 2,000 children in the U.S. every year. It is often diagnosed through ultrasound. While surgery […]

Stem Cell as a Promise for Eye Repair Surgery

The surface of the cornea is maintained by corneal epithelial stem cells located in the transition zone between the cornea and conjunctiva—the limbus . Limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) is an irreversible disease resulting from the loss or dysfunction of these epithelial stem cells.  The corneal epithelium becomes deficient and is replaced by the surrounding […]

Stem Cell Treatment a Promise for Paraplejic Condition: Animal Model Study

Engineered tissue containing human stem cells has allowed paraplegic rats to walk independently and regain sensory perception. The implanted rats also show some degree of healing in their spinal cords. The research, published in Frontiers in Neuroscience, demonstrates the great potential of stem cells — undifferentiated cells that can develop into numerous different types of […]
