Creating brain cells from bone marrow

...one marrow cells which opens up the possibility of grafts for Parkinson's disease. At the Peterson Medical College scientists grew stem cells from adult bone marrow in a finely-tuned cocktail of growth factors and other chemicals and found they could get them to convert into neurons. Normally such stem ce...

Older Men Surviving Coronary Bypasses

Also helping to boost the survival rates, according to Pell, are improvements in "secondary prevention," meaning post-surgical drug treatments and changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle, including quitting smoking....

Parasite infections linked to organ transplants

...turned up 26 bacterial infections traced to tissue grafts that had come from cadavers in the United States. This shows that the graft-related infections show an urgent need to update federal regulations and industry standards for preventing contamination.

Grafting arteries to restore blood flow is best for survival

Incomplete artery grafting may not increase the lifespan of the patients sufficiently outside the hospital stay. Researchers feel that the current tendency of considering only the hospital stay...

Cardiac bypass seems to be favoring men more than women

...es or veins from other parts of your body — called grafts — and using them to reroute the blood around the clogged artery.

Stem cell therapy for developing new trachea using Tissue engineering

...re tubes, with the required nutrients and when the grafts with the engineered tissues were ready they were reconstructed on to the lambs. Four to five weeks later, the lambs were born, and all five lambs that survived to term were able to breathe spontaneously at birth, four of them with no sign of respirat...

A Novel Method For Measuring Interstitial Fluid Pressure In Cancer Tissues

...chnique, the authors compared IFP in skin melanoma grafts in NG2 knockout and wild-type mice. Knocking out NG2 proteoglycan on vasculogenic and angiogenic pericytes was found to reduce interstitial fluid pressure in melanoma. This study also demonstrates that IFP is elevated in skin melanoma. The simplifi...

Another Potential Of Stem Cells Discovered: Used For Growing Cartilage

...have to cut away parts of cartilage, and then take grafts from other parts of the body. With this new technique doctors would potentially be able to take stem cells from the patient, grow them in a laboratory, and then transplant them after the surgery. The research, carried out by a team at Imperial Coll...

Doctors Finish Mother-To-Son Nerve Surgery

In some cases, grafts can be taken from other parts of the body, but in Anderson's case, the loss of his leg meant there wasn't enough donor nerve to use, Belzberg said. Anderson's mother, Frankie Anderson, 40, had nerve segments removed from each arm and leg on Tuesday,...

... tumor. In animal studies (mice) with human glioma grafts the drug is found to be potent against proliferating cancer cells. The unique effectiveness of PI-103 stems from its ability to attack two separate steps in the series of signals that trigger the spread of cancer. The dual blockade proved to be a saf...
