Malignant Stem Cells May Explain Why Some Breast Cancers Develop and Recur PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 20 August 2011 00:14
Mutations that are found in stem cells could be causing some breast cancers to develop and may be the reason the disease recurs. These abnormal cells are likely controlling cell functions in the tumor and, given they are not targeted by chemotherapy and radiation, they enable the disease to recur.

Cells Derived from Pluripotent Stem Cells Are Developmentally Immature PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 20 August 2011 00:12
Stem cell researchers at UCLA have discovered that three types of cells derived from human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells are similar to each other, but are much more developmentally immature than previously thought when compared to those same cell types taken directly from human tissue.

Lasers Stimulate Stem Cells and Reduce Heart Scarring After Heart Attack, Study Suggests PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 16 August 2011 00:30
After a heart attack or stroke, heart scarring can lead to dangerously paper-thin heart walls and a decreased ability to pump blood through the body. Although the heart is unable to completely heal itself, a new treatment developed at Tel Aviv University uses laser-treated bone marrow stem cells to help restore heart function and health.

Cancer Stem Cells Made, Not Born: Experiments and Modeling Reveal How Tumors Maintain Cellular Balance PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 23 August 2011 00:49
In cancer, tumors aren't uniform: they are more like complex societies, each with a unique balance of cancer cell types playing different roles. Understanding this "social structure" of tumors is critical for treatment decisions in the clinic because different cell types may be sensitive to different drugs.

Cancer Cells Exist in a ‘Decentralized Society’, Claims Study PDF Print E-mail
User Rating :  / 1
Tuesday, 23 August 2011 00:08

In a recent study, it has been revealed that cancer cells are part of a "decentralized society" instead of a hierarchical one, expected to be one of the major reasons to make cancer cells hard to destroy.

Stem Cells Central to Pathogenesis of Mature Lymphoid Tumors PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 20 August 2011 00:13
New research suggests that blood stem cells can be involved in the generation of leukemia, even when the leukemia is caused by the abnormal proliferation of mature cells. The study, published by Cell Press in the August 16th issue of the journal Cancer Cell, may guide future strategies aimed at identifying therapeutic targets for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

Stem Cell Mobilization Therapy Safe for Bone Marrow Donors, Study Suggests PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 16 August 2011 00:32
According to a study published in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), researchers have reported that administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), a drug that releases stem cells from the bone marrow into the blood, is unlikely to put healthy stem cell donors at risk for later development of abnormalities involving loss or gains of chromosomes that have been linked to hematologic disorders such as myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Bypassing Stem Cells, Scientists Make Neurons Directly from Human Skin PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 August 2011 00:15

Researchers have come up with a recipe for making functional neurons directly from human skin cells, including those taken from patients with Alzheimer's disease. The new method may offer a critical short cut for generating neurons for replacement therapies of the future, according to research published in the August 5th issue of the journal Cell, a Cell Press publication.
