1. Bioengineered protein –The latest Therapeutic Invention to fight Leukemia

In a fascinating discovery US scientists have reported a bioengineered protein CD19-L, that can target the CD19-positive leukemic stem cells and destroy them Click to read more...

2. World’s First RNA Aptamer –The chemical Guided missile against cancer

Deakin University medical scientists along with scientists in India and Australia have created the world's first RNA aptamer which can act as a cell target missile against cancer cells that in future can help in designing Cell Therapy Bombs against Cancer cells Click to read more...

3. Reprogramming Cells may result in Genomic Aberrations, reveal studies

Recent studies have reported that reprogrammed stem cells exhibit a "genomic instability" that results in genetic mutations akin to mutations found in cancer cells which has lead to the conclusion that reprogrammed stem cells need to be extensively investigated before applied clinically Click to read more...

4. Human Umbilical Cord blood stem cells increase wound healing in diabetic mouse models

In a study, scientists have found that transplanting human umbilical cord blood-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) results in faster wound healing in diabetic mouse models.Click to read more...

5. Stem cells for breast reconstruction in the most natural way

Scientists have a developed a technique by which softer breasts can be reconstructed after cancer surgery in a natural way using stem cells Click to read more...

6. Stem cells from the nose to treat hearing loss

Australian researchers have identified that stem cells derived from the nasal mucosa can help preserve hearing function during the early-onset of sensorineural hearing loss Click to read more...

7. Stem cell therapy for kidney problems

In Tehran University, researchers have transplanted autologous progenitor cells from the kidney into rat models with kidney damage from pyelonephritis and the treated animals have shown improvement in kidney structure and functionClick to read more...

8. Hair Follicle Stem Cells in Wound Healing increases risk of Basal Cell Carcinoma

Research has identified that hair follicle stem cells involved in active wound healing are responsible for the increased risk of Basal Cell Carcinoma associated with both chronic and acute wounds Click to read more...

9. Dynamic Blood stem cells-An interesting update

New research has provided insights into the dynamism of blood stem cells that the blood stem are more flexible and tend to shift status from rapidly dividing to dormant cellsClick to read more...

10. Estrogens: A target to control breast cancer stem cells

A new study has shown that estrogen is capable of reducing the number of breast cancer stem cells and this is the mecahism behind better prognosis observed with tumors that express the estrogen receptorClick to read more...
