Pig cloning for organs

... gene. The next step will be to test the organs by transplanting them into non-human primates. "We think if everything is successful with what we think are the major issues, in two to three years we'll be able to develop a program to test the organs in small numbers of human patients," said Julia Greenstein of Imm...

Animals Can give us a second chance at life

In the 1960s, surgeons experimented by transplanting chimpanzee organs into humans in need of an organ transplant. In 1985, Baby Fae received a baboon heart and survived 20 days. // Since then, doctors have continued to look to animals as a source for organs, tissues and cells to treat various diseases...

New Treatment For Patients With Paralysis

...y researchers injected rats with Rolipram prior to transplanting Schwann cells to preserve cyclic AMP. Cyclic AMP helps enable the growth of nerve fibers that send signals up and down the spinal cord and central nervous system. The rats also received injections of cyclic AMP to promote the growth of nerve fibers p...

Fetal Cell Transplant Found To Improve Movement In Patients With Parkinson’s Disease

... for movement. Fetal cell transplantation involves transplanting aborted human fetal tissue to replace the lost dopamine-producing cells to help restore movement. Levodopa (Dopar or Larodopa) is the gold standard treatment for Parkinson’s disease. While the drug offers substantial relief, research shows it tends ...

Transplant helps diabetes

Kidneys Can Be Transplanted From Animals Such As Pigs In Future

The idea of transplanting human organs and tissues has captured the imaginat... as pigs in some 5 years from now. This process of transplanting organs and tissues and tissues from one species to another is called as Xenotransplantation. This is...

Down syndrome simulated in animal model after successful chromosome transplantation

...h breakthrough has been the successful attempts of transplanting human chromosome into animal models, more specifically, chromosome 21 into mice. The presence of an extra copy of the 21st chromosome is responsible for Down syndrome, one of the most common autosomal chromosomal disorder. This move is anticipated ...

Diabetes cure can be achieved using pig islets

...ting islet cells from the donor (pig) pancreas and transplanting them into the portal vein of the liver in people with diabetes. Then the transplanted islets will sense blood glucose levels and release the appropriate amount of insulin to control blood glucose in the body. After transplantation these patients do n...

German Scientists Create Stem Cells From Mouse Testes

...new tissues and organs from the derived cells, and transplanting the tissues into patients with organ failure. Most importantly, the study provides valuable clues, highlighting that every man has all it takes to regenerate and replace damaged or lost tissues, of course with a help of a cell biologist. The result...

Stem Cell Technology Gives Hope in Spinal Cord Injuries

...sis and other problems. And for this very reason transplanting adult stem cells into an injured spinal cord does not encourage nerve growth. . This led the Davies team to think of signaling cells similar to stem cells known as the glial-restricted precursors, or GRPs, to become a particular type of embryonic a...

Southeast Asian Children With Leukaemia To Get New Treatment

...e cells from the parent's bone marrow cells before transplanting them, allowing the child's body to accept them. St. Jude is helping the NUH set up such a service in Singapore in a year's time. The procedures have helped make St. Jude's remission rate for childhood leukaemia one of the best in the world, at 90...

Transplanted Pancreatic Tissue Could Help Diabetics

...ls as foreign, causing the body to reject them. By transplanting tissues from pig embryos into mice lacking proper immune systems, they determined that the best time frame for pancreatic tissue was about a third of the way through gestation (from 42 to 56 days). In the new study, Reisner's team wanted to see if s...

New discovery may help treat stroke-affected humans

...ng an injury, rather than labouriously growing and transplanting new cells, Nature reports. Researchers believe out of the many tissues in a human body that harbour stem cells capable of dividing to make new tissue, some are recalcitrant and do not naturally divide to repair damage wreaked by severe injuries suc...

Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury with Embryonic Stem Cells

Acute spinal cord injury can be treated by transplanting human embryonic stem cell without any harm, according to a recent study by UC Irvine researchers.// UCI neurobiologist Hans Keirstead and colleagues at the Reeve-Irvine Research Center found that rats with either mild or severe spinal cord injuries ...

Transplant Cures Rats’ Type 2 Diabetes without Need for Immune Suppression Drug

...normal pancreas,” says Rogers. The advantages of transplanting insulin-producing cells has also led to decades of research into transplantation of human pancreas and islets, the cells that produce insulin. Unfortunately, donor organs are so scarce that transplantation is an option for only a tenth of 1 percent o...

IVF Twins May Soon be a Thing of the Past

...35, whereas remaining embryos are to be frozen for transplanting should the first attempt at pregnancy meets with failure. Private IVF clinics are also expected to come under this proposal because the HFEA licenses all clinics, not just those on the National Health Service. It has been estimated that about 30,00...

Human Stem Cells Delay Start of Lou Gehrig’s Disease in Rat

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have shown that transplanting human stem cells into spinal cords of rats bred to duplicate Lou Gehrig’s disease delays the start of nerve// cell damage typical of the disease and slightly prolongs life. The grafted stem cells develop into nerve cells that make substantial connect...

Unholy Grail Found?

... aborting a human fetus at a 12-week-old stage and transplanting his or her stem cells into the brains of patients. Stem cells can be found in embryos and have the capacity of morphing into any other type of cell type. This in turn can develop into a wide range of tissues and muscle; hence their use in medical t...
