Singing the Praises of Stem Cell Research

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Oct 25, 2014 6:30:15 AM

Stem Cells in white crown sparrows used to study neurodegenerative diseases.

A research team from the University of Washington has discovered a stem cell signal in Gambel’s white-crown sparrows that may lead to new regenerative treatments for patient suffering from neurodegenerative diseases. The team found that, in preparation for an upcoming mating season, the sparrow’s brain cells release a chemical signal that activates the division of neural stem cells, which facilitate peak singing performance to attract mates.

New York Times: The Eruption of Stem Cell Therapies.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Sep 16, 2014 11:04:35 AM

Mr. Edgar Irastorza is one of thousands of people already benefiting from the progression of stem cell based therapies.

As reported on the front page of the New York Times Science section, clinical applications of stem cell based therapies are accelerating at a rate that will revolutionize the medical field in a matter of years. In the United States alone, there are currently over 4000 therapies in clinical trials for the treatment of heart disease, blindness, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, H.I.V., and other diseases, injuries, and traumas.

Alzheimer’s Disease Studied with Human Stem Cells

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Mar 12, 2014 10:52:34 AM

The use of human stem cells could lead to a better understanding of causes and possible treatments for Alzheimer's Disease

A research team from Aston University has developed a new method to investigate Alzheimer’s disease through the use of human stem cells. Through the study of tau proteins, this novel use of stem cells can help scientists predict with greater accuracy the effectiveness of different treatments to prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

Stem Cell Advance Gives Hope for Neurodegenerative Treatment

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Mar 13, 2013 11:18:52 AM

Scientists in the US (UC, UCSD) and China (Wuhan) have found a way to convert stem cells into functional neurons. The researchers were able to suppress an RNA-binding protein, inducing the stem cells to become neurons. This gives hope for a treatment for neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), which will afflict one in four Americans over their lifetime.

Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Nov 28, 2012 8:00:05 AM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alzheimer’s is a neurodegenerative disorder currently affecting 5 million people in the U.S. and 35 million across the globe. As the global population ages, the number of people affected is growing rapidly. November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month with the goal of raising awareness of a disease that touches almost everyone.

Progress in Differentiation Accelerates Stem Cell Treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Nov 7, 2012 5:00:58 AM

Researchers at Gutenberg University Mainz have found a way to generate human neurons from pericytes, cells found in the central nervous system, through the use of stem cells. The researchers have observed the process of differentiation that stem cells undergo when they become a new type of cell, and have induced stem cells to go through this process. Therefore, these cells have been directed to become new neuronal cells.
