Three elderly women blinded by the promises of stem cell treatments are now, sadly, legally blind.
There are calls to lift NIH's restrictions on the controversial chimera studies. But are we ready for this most controversial study yet?
Hundreds of clinics in the USA are part of an unregulated market selling stem cell treatments to Americans. A study counts 570 clinics in almost every state that are advertising unapproved stem cell therapies.
With only three northern white rhinoceroses left on Earth, experts plan to use stem cells to revive the species before they go extinct.
As the researchers sequenced the flatworm's DNA, they observed which genes were activated for certain regenerative purposes which they believe will aid in future stem cell research.
A single type of cancer stem cell has been identified as the source of the most aggressive and invasive bladder cancers, according to a new study.
Stretchy and malleable Silly Putty appears to be useful in helping embryonic stem cells turn into working spinal cord cells, according to a past study.
Researchers are claiming to have found a way to trigger tissue repair in wasting muscles in patients suffering from muscular dystrophy. This could potentially revolutionize how doctors treat such conditions, which currently lack ways to slow the progression of muscle damage.
Huntington's disease is a difficult-to-study and very sneaky genetic condition that always results in death. Now researchers believe they have managed to create a model from primate cells that allows them to study the effects of the disease in accelerated time, and all in a Petri dish.
Researchers have determined that geometric patterning, not just chemical signals, help dictate how a stem cell will specialize. This discovery was detailed in a recently published study.
Researchers have developed a way to make countless mini-hearts for the study of heart disease, allowing scientists to study the disease to their own hearts' content.
Researchers have successfully crafted a functioning human retina using human stem cells. This lab-made retina is miniature compared to the real thing, but the researchers claim it can sense light much like its natural counter-parts, according to a recent study.
Recent animal testing has revealed that stem cells loaded with the herpes virus can be used to specifically target and kill brain tumors, a startling revelation for the field of virotherapy.
Researchers have discovered new evidence that indicates that, like many genetic disorders, schizophrenia may begin in the womb. Using stem cells, researchers observed the formation of early-stage neurons and identified key changes common among schizophrenic patients.
