Bioartificial kidney under study at MCG

...tions also can harm the kidneys. Even the contrast medium needed to study kidney function can be toxic. "I have seen healthy people on antibiotics for urinary tract infections develop renal failure; that's not uncommon, but it's most dreaded in the critically ill patient," Dr. Szerlip says. ...

Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...es of mini-stages, each requiring a unique growing medium and precise timing. To start, the Wisconsin team generated neural stem cells from the embryonic stem cells. They then transformed the neural cells into progenitor cells of motor neurons, which in turn developed in a lab dish into spinal motor neuron ...

More research isneeded to understand the optimal conditions for preparing human cellsfor therapeutic application.""We considered that one partial solution to the prob...

UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

...be rather simple now to develop a specific defined medium that allows for the maintenance of the human stem cells and enhances research without the problem of contaminating animal cells and their products." In a summary to their paper, the researchers noted that "the identification of activin A as a key fa...

Techniques have also been explored to create the new adhesives from tree bark or wood...

Human Eggs Can Develop From Ovarian Surface Cells In Vitro

...o 6 days in the presence of an estrogen-containing medium (phenol red) to stimulate their growth, the team was able to produce new human oocytes in vitro. The oocytes cultured in this way are viable and went on to successfully complete the first meiotic division to become mature human eggs -- capable of be...

Scientists succeed in cloning human embryos from eggs matured in the lab

...tes were artificially activated by incubation in a medium containing calcium ionophore, which enabled the injected nucleus to prepare for the first embryonic division.

...re were four sets of flasks, each holding a growth medium containing water with a different ratio of oxygen-18 to oxygen-16. After the bacteria grew for three hours, the contents of each flask were sucked through a filter, leaving a pasty "cake" of bacterial cells with the consistency of wet flour. Water ...

Sperm stem cells closer to being like embryonic stem cells
