Placenta Is A Rich Source Of Blood Stem Cells

...in mice revealed that the placenta harbors a large supply of hematopoietic (blood-forming) stem cells. These cells, which appear very early in development, are able to generate more blood stem cells and can give rise to a complete blood system when transplanted into an adult. Unlike other sites where blood ...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

But eventually the treatment can backfire. “Levodopa generally works great for several years, but then it actually starts creating movement problems,?Mandel said. “Our idea is ...

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers

...tissues. "Even in our own case, our bodies have to supply oxygen to our tissues, but they must also keep out excess oxygen to prevent oxidative damage to the tissues. This damage is closely related to aging. Hence, perhaps, the many anti-oxidative creams flooding the market to combat aging. The concentratio...

Novel ultrafast laser detection of cancer cells also may improve understanding of stem cells

In contrast, the mitochondria in the cancer cell sit all over, isolated and balled up in a quiescent, non-functioning state. Apparently, the rapidly growing cancer cells derive energy from an alternative sourc...

NJIT Presidential Award winner takes stem cell research another step
