MIT creates 3-D scaffold for growing stem cells

...w synthetic structure can provide a more conducive microenvironment for tissue cell cultures and tissues used in regenerative medicine, such as skin grafts or neurons to replace brain cells lost to injury or disease. The scaffold itself can be transplanted directly into the body with no ill effects. "The time has...

Macrophage signaling may affect hormone resistance in prostate tumors

...l signaling from macrophages in the prostate tumor microenvironment might affect hormone resistance.Using cell biology methods, they discovered a mechanistic explanation for at least one form of resistance to androgen antagonists. "It was of particular interest for us to determine whether a macrophage/prostate canc...

Researchers reveal lung's unique innate immune system

...sed in the lung by epithelial cells. "Because the microenvironment of the alveola is a delicate one, it would be damaged if the macrophage immune system was in a constant battle-ready status," said Raz. "This could readily lead to the type of inflammation we see in autoimmune diseases of the lung such as asthma." ...
