NJIT Presidential Award winner takes stem cell research another step

...vision. Stem cells are harvested from bone marrow, umbilical cords, the brain and spinal cord and other tissues. Adult stem cells also have a unique trait that lends them their magic: Under the right conditions, or given the proper signals, they have the ability to turn into different cell types. Arinzeh is d...

...ified in bone marrow, the brain and blood from the umbilical cord. "Compared to bone marrow, a skin biopsy is easy to take, so it offers advantages for clinical use," said Soker. "The cells can be obtained from any small sample of human skin." Next, Atala's research team hopes to test the function of the tis...

Discarded placentas deliver researchers promising cells similar to embryonic stem cells

...y someday be needed, as is sometimes done now with umbilical cord blood," commented Dr. Strom. The amnion is derived from the embryo and forms as early as eight days after fertilization, when the fate of cells has yet to be determined, and serves to protect the developing fetus. According to the researchers' ...

Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative funds Yale project

...esearch in Biomedicine introduces cells from human umbilical cord blood into mice to establish a human immune system. "Using this technology and the genetic modification of the mouse, we will end up with a reasonably faithful replica of the human immune system," said Flavell. The project is titled "A Mouse Mo...

Center releases new public survey on stem cells

...ether other sources of stem cells - blood from the umbilical cord removed at birth, for example - might be as useful without the need to destroy embryos, but the scientific consensus so far is that embryos remain the best research choice. Typically, the embryos used are those remaining at the conclusion of fe...

Cord blood cells may widen treatment window for stroke

...t the University of South Florida found that human umbilical cord blood cells administered to rats two days following a stroke greatly curbed the brain's inflammatory response, reducing the size of the stroke and resulting in greatly improved recovery. The rats' inflammatory response to injury from stroke peak...

Researchers identify new cord blood stem cell

...have discovered a new population of cells in human umbilical cord blood that have properties of primitive stem cells. Umbilical cord blood is generally known to contain hematopoietic stem cells that can only produce cells found in blood. The new findings, however, identify a small population of cord blood ...
