Stem Cells Give Prometheus a Boost

Posted by on Jun 27, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Researchers at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital are one step closer to reducing organ donor shortages by creating self-organizing human liver tissues. Utilizing innovative genetic sequencing observed in a 3D microenvironment, researchers identified the transcription factors responsible for the signal that causes stem cells to differentiate into liver tissue. This sequence of genes enabled them to program lab-grown liver cells that both genetically, and functionally, closely resemble actual developing liver cells.

Today’s Menu Special:  Stem Cells

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.

Novel Stem Cell Repair Protocol

Posted by on May 20, 2016 2:23:00 PM

A new advancement in stem cell differentiation has been developed by UNSW Australia researchers. The technique utilizes autologous stem cells treated with a series of growth factors to promote cell plasticity. The mixture is then inserted into damaged tissues, promoting growth and healing.

A Cat's Tale

Posted by on Feb 24, 2016 1:09:00 PM

Veterinary researchers have used stem cells to cure a cat of chronic gingivostomatitis (FCGS), a painful oral disease. The technique involved extracting autologous mesenchymal stem cells, processing and characterizing them, and intravenously injecting them into the cats to reduce inflammation and promote tissue regeneration.

Hearing Through Your Nose

Posted by on Aug 24, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Scientists in Australia have discovered that mesenchymal stem cells [derived from nasal mucosa] may have the potential to preserve hearing among individuals whose hearing loss began in infancy or in early life. Such hearing loss carries broad implications for growth and development: The loss of sensory cells in the cochlea can lead to substantial language and cognitive delays. The researchers believe the injected mesenchymal stem cells induce local, specialized stem cells to function properly, repair tissue damage and prevent further deterioration. In the study, the animals that received the stem cells showed evidence of improved hearing, with hearing thresholds that were far lower and more sensitive than untreated controls.

Silk Scaffold Supplies Salivary Gland Stem Cell Solution

Posted by on Aug 19, 2015 11:31:58 AM


Purified silk strands provided the scaffolding for a matrix of rat salivary cell glands developed from stem cells, according to new research from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Salivary stem cells have historically been difficult to grow in culture while retaining their function. Silk was selected as the cell scaffolding because it is organic (biodegradable), flexible, porous – providing amply access to oxygen – and does not cause inflammation.

Stem Cell Hydrogel Used in Dental Implants

Posted by on Aug 7, 2015 3:22:30 PM

Alireza Moshaverinia, a USC dental researcher, recently received the 2015 IADR Innovation in Oral Care Award for his groundbreaking research into the treatment of peri-implantitis, a common, destructive inflammatory complication in dental implant patients. As many as two in five implant patients experience peri-implantitis and related bone and tissue loss. Moshaverinia developed an injectable adhesive hydrogel which included mesenchymal stem cells and anti-inflammatory/antimicrobial properties.
