1. Long term follow-up of gene therapy clinical trial for skin disorder proves safety and efficacy

A research team led by Michele De Luca of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia has done a new method of gene therapy by Transplanting small amount of skin stem cells into the patient affected with genetic skin disorders and done a long-term follow-up which showed a safety out come.

2. Mesenchymal cells derived from amniotic epithelial cells prove beneficial for cardiac regeneration in mice

Using mice model would improve cardiac regeneration capacity with mesenchymal cells derived from amniotic epithelial cells by increasing their mobility and extra cellular matrix modulating capacity says scientists. Click to read more...

3. Humanized mouse models developed for studying immune rejection of foreign cells derived from human embryonic stem cells

Human embryonic stem cells treated as foreign to normal cells during transplantation and hence we need to suppress the immune system using immunosuppressive drugs taken during organ transplantation. But in case of stem cell therapy they may cause some sever health problem. In order to study the immune rejection process biologist has derived a humanized mouse model. Click to read more...

4. Mechanism behind osteogenic differentiation of stem cells induced by calcium phosphate biomaterials deciphered

A team of bioengineer research team from University of California has mechanism of osteogenic differentiation of stem cells by induction calcium phosphate into a metabolic pathway.Click to read more...

5. Study offers valuable insights into specialization process of embryonic stem cells to endoderm derived cells like pancreatic and liver cells

Professor Joshua Brickman and his team from DanStem explain the new stem cell pathway towards specialization process in cell therapies for Diabetes and liver diseases. Click to read more...

6. Developing an artificial stem cell niche by growing artificial Bone Marrow for treatment of leukemia - a breakthrough

Hematopoietic stem cells are a specialized niche of the bone marrow. Incase of blood disease like leukemia, bone marrow transplanted from a healthy donor. Due to insufficient of donors and the stem cells property change when it comes out of the niche they need create an environment which similar to that of bone marrow. Hence some young researchers have successfully developed an artificial bone marrow. Click to read more...

7. The pre-programmable units help to control the cells after transplantation

Post transplanted follow-up of cells are very challenging. This study shows transplanted cells is mange after transplantation using an innovative method to control cell differentiation, immune modulation or matrix production.Click to read more...

8. A novel study explains the metastasis of breast cancer

The Lethal part of cancer stage is metastasis. Examining such stage is quite challenging approach for researchers hence they have explains a new study to understand the pathway which regulate this metastasis. Click to read more...

9. An Age related muscular degeneration (AMD) can be replaced through stem cell implantation technique

Scientist of Bonn University had created a method to replace the Age related muscular degeneration (AMD) problem with stem cell implantation technique in a rabbit model successfully. Click to read more...

10. HIV-1 CD4 T cells consist of cellular immune memory with similar characters of stem cells says a new study

T cells are actively participates in the body's immune response which stores the "Memory" more than a decades even likewise in case of HIV infected patients T cells resembles same character of stem cells explains the study. Click to read more..

Really???

1. Genetically proved that the Sans are one of oldest peoples in the world. They are most ancient, and are considered to be a "Genetic Adam".

2. Beside the DNA present in the nucleus, people also have DNA present in mitochondria. This DNA is only inherited from the mother and it is used in studies related to female ancestry. An interesting fact noticed in bees is that their mitochondrial DNA can also be inherited from the father.
