Blood Cells Produced with Stem Cells

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on May 25, 2017 1:43:46 PM

 

Researchers at Weill Cornell College of Medicine and Boston Children’s Hospital have developed two methods to utilize stem cells taken from patients to produce full-fledged blood cells. By genetically engineering adult stem cells, researchers were able to create blood stem cells that could differentiate into white and red blood cells, as well as platelets. This revolutionary technique could help patients who require regular blood transfusions, as well as those who are awaiting bone marrow donations.

Today’s Menu Special:  Stem Cells

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Mar 17, 2017 3:48:24 PM

 

Bay area food technology startup Memphis Meats has grown real-tasting chicken meat, without ever raising a single chicken. Companies are capitalizing on the technology of using stem cells to grow meat tissue, producing meat that bypasses farms, going straight from lab to table. This innovation not only proves more environmentally friendly, but also cuts the costs of feeding and waste disposal associated with raising livestock and poultry, but incorporates stem cells in a novel and unconventional way.

Stem Cell Awareness Day 2014

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Oct 8, 2014 11:25:03 AM

The California Institute of Regenerative Medicine has coordinated Stem Cell Awareness day to highlight all of the progress that stem cells already made for patients around the world.

Today, stem cells are rightfully perceived as the future of regenerative medicine, set to bring the marvels of science fiction into reality. But in looking ahead at all of the promise that stem cells hold for the future, it becomes easy to miss the scientific advances made to date for the millions of people around the world suffering from disease, trauma, and injury. Thus, today marks Stem Cell Awareness Day: a global celebration of stem cell research coordinated to highlight the treatments and therapies currently in development to create personalized regenerative therapies for patients.

Ataxia Study Utilizes Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Jun 9, 2014 9:56:49 AM

A University of California PhD student has utilized stem cells to create a disease-on-a-chip model to study Ataxia.

Jackie Ward, a PhD student at the University of California, San Diego, has devised a method for studying rare neurological diseases, such as spinocerebeller ataxia. Ward developed a disease-on-a-dish model by harvesting stem cells from ataxic patients, differentiating them into the type of cell that is degenerated by ataxia, and then studying the progression of the disease.

Motor Neuron Development Accelerated by New Stem Cell Technique

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Apr 18, 2014 11:01:17 AM

A new procedure in differentiating stem cells will accelerate advances in treating neurological diseases.

A team of researchers at the University of Illinois led by doctors Fei Wang, Qiuhao Qu, and JianJun Cheng, have developed a fast and efficient technique for differentiating stem cells into motor neurons. The researchers added critical signaling molecules and growth factors to the cells much earlier than previous methods, resulting in twice the amount of neurons derived from the cells in half the time.

Lower Back Pain Relieved by Mesenchymal Stem Cells [MSCs]

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Mar 19, 2014 12:07:48 PM

MSC's injected into the spine caused a decrease in back pain and the need for invasive treatment.

In a recent Phase II clinical study, researchers report that mesenchymal stem cells were successful in relieving chronic lower back pain. The scientists injected MSCs directly into the degenerating vertebral disks of patients suffering from lower back pain, resulting in an overall reduction in the mean pain score, improved function for at least 12 months, and a reduced need for further surgical and non-surgical treatment interventions.

Artificial Bone Marrow Holds Promise for Leukemia Patients

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Feb 19, 2014 9:35:35 AM

Artificial Bone Marrow may allow one donor to provide stem cells to help treat a multitude of leukemia sufferers.

A team of scientists from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, and the University of Tubingen have recently developed a prototype of artificial bone marrow. The bone marrow retains all of its basic properties, including the ability to regenerate hematopoietic stem cells, which can be used to treat patients with leukemia.

Liver Cell Transplantations Stabilized by Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Jan 28, 2014 5:52:54 AM

Mesenchymal Stem Cells were shown to release factors to aid in hepatocyte regeneration.

Researchers at King’s County Hospital, London, have found that co-culturing hepatocytes [liver cells] with human mesenchymal stem cells [The same type found in Dental Stem Cells] improves hepatocyte survival and function. They found that in the presence of hepatocytes, the MSCs produced pro-survival factors, which supported the growth of the hepatocyte culture.

Stem Cells Utilized to Target Brain Tumors

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Oct 4, 2013 12:13:44 PM

Maciej S. Lesniak and Yu Cheng, researchers at University of Chicago’s Brain Tumor Center, are using Neural Stem Cells [NSCs] to target brain tumors. The neural stem cells, which have a built-in homing mechanism to “sniff out” tumors, are being used to deliver cancer drugs to combat the tumors. The use of NSCs to treat brain tumors represents a novel use of stem cells and is indicative of researcher’s increasing application of stem cells to develop treatments for previously intractable health issues. The treatment takes advantage of stem cells role as the body’s natural repair and maintenance mechanism.
