Indian Doctor granted US patent on organ regeneration

...an patent office for his technique in successfully regenerating / repairing organs in human beings. A few weeks ago the American patent office granted him a patent on this technique. Dr. Matapurkar was able to regenerate organs like the uterus, urethra and ureter in animals and experiments are on to regenerate ...

Clotting Protein plays a role in nerve repair

...are able to begin repairing the damaged myelin and regenerating the myelin sheath as the nerve grows. Schwann cells help repair nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord, while a second type of cell has at least "limited capacity" to repair myelin in the brain. According to him, fibrin has two effects on the r...

Regeneration of muscle

...d tissue. It was seen that stem cells taken from regenerating muscle in mice lacking the Pax7 gene could not become muscle cells, and that by putting Pax7 back into stem cells taken from uninjured muscle, they can generate a population of cells that readily differentiate into muscle cells. When stem cells eng...

Stem cell therapy for curing deafness

...ing embryonic stem cells // from the inner ear and regenerating the cells for treatment. The researchers have tried to regenerate the damaged cell by using sensory nerve cells and make them divide into required cell, which has lead to repairing of deafness. Researchers feel that the research in ear stem cell re...

Limb Regeneration Exists Innately In All Vertebrates – Says Researc

...Institute for Biological Studies are successful in regenerating a wing in a chick embryo – a species not known to be able to regrow limbs. The study suggests that the potential for such regeneration may also exists innately in all vertebrates including human beings. Chop off a salamander's leg and a brand new ...

Pig Stem Cells Show Promise in Repairing Animals’ Heart Attack Damag

...ls in mice and humans that demonstrated success in regenerating infarcted heart muscle and restoring heart cell function post-infarct. For the study, cardiac stem cells were extracted by tissue biopsy from eight pigs whose main arterial blood supply was tightened for more than two hours, duplicating the effect...

New data from NIH lab confirms protocol to reverse type 1 diabetes in mice

...ears that there are multiple potential sources for regenerating islets. As a research community we should pursue all avenues. We're excited to see what will happen in humans." In the 2001 and 2003 studies, Faustman and colleagues treated end-stage nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice with Freund's complete adjuvant, a ...

Unholy Grail Found?

...rail for stroke research has been to find a way of regenerating the damaged part of the brain. Until now its been thought that the damage was irreversible.“ Religious groups have come out very strongly against the move describing it unethical in every way and akin to cannibalization. John Smeaton of the Society...

Cellular Cues Identified for Stroke Recovery

...isms for neuronal regeneration hold the promise of regenerating and reconnecting brain cells near the area where stroke occurs. While the process may vary between mice and humans, he said, it’s known that neurogenesis occurs in humans. “We’re hopeful that we can take advantage of the brain’s plasticity,” said Car...

Regrowth of Zebrafish's Tail Fin may Offer Clues for Treating Human Injuries

New Source of Stem Cells Discovered

...ell research//. Stem cells are cells capable of regenerating into just about any type of cell that could develop into any type of tissue or organ. Hence their invaluable use in the research that is concerned with finding a cure for incurable diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes and stroke among oth...

Liver Regeneration Unplugged

...t liver regeneration. These findings proved that a regenerating liver does not portray the characteristics of a growing embryo. Instead, regeneration may actually be due to proliferation of cells due to cell division. "These results are very encouraging," Karp says. "Not only did we discover that the number of ...

Scientists Spotted Out Tumor Vessel by Molecular Markers

...blood vessels derived from normal resting tissues, regenerating tissues, and tumors. A comparison of the normal vessels revealed several organ-specific endothelial genes that could potentially aid in the delivery of molecular medicine to specific anatomical sites. The study also revealed 13 genes that are selec...

Nanomedicine Gives the Way for Nerve Cell Regeneration

...s. These polymer fibers act as physical guides for regenerating nerve fibers. They have also developed a way to make these aligned nanofibers bioactive by attaching various biochemicals directly onto the surfaces of the nanofibers. Thus, the bioactive aligned nanofiber technology mimics the nerve autograft by p...

Sylvester Stallone Admits He Tried to Smuggle Banned Growth Hormone to Australia

...boosting muscle mass, improving sexual prowess and regenerating major organs. Human growth hormone (HGH) is made naturally in the pituitary gland of humans, deep inside the brain just behind the eyes. It is a microscopic protein substance that is secreted in short pulses during the first hours of sleep and af...
