Scientists at Salk Institute in La Jolla, California have successfully develop a new form of gene therapy that was capable of reversing the aging process of mice models and lengthen their life by 30 percent.
Many people were surprised to find out that scientists are sending stem cells into space. It is known to many that the weightlessness of space can do pretty incredible things to the body. However, scientists are trying to figure out what kinds of things near-weightless conditions can do to developing cells. Scientists have cent stem cells in a dish to the ISS so that astronauts can observe and record their findings, perhaps to help the future of mankind.
A new study from the Texas A&M College of Medicine revealed a possible explanation why some breast cancer patients experience a more aggressive form of the disease a few months after a successful treatment.
Scientists are growing 300 “test tube” human brains with the goal of studying and developing cures for neurological disorders.
Scientists have grown stem cells that could grow new cartilage on the hip, which could provide an alternative to hip replacement surgery.
Japanese firms are taking big steps to cure and prevent baldness, and target to introduce the cure by 2020.
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.
Bioquark Inc, a Philadelphia-based biotech company is conducting research on patients declared clinically dead but kept alive on life support.
Researchers are getting closer to making artificial personalized organs as they succeeded in developing an artificial skin--complete with real skin functions, such as hair growth, sweat production and protective oil secretion.
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.
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.
Scientists at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park are hoping that their "frozen zoo" can save the world's endangered species.
Scientists have successfully "reset" stem cells in the lab to a fully pristine state, according to new breakthrough research that can transform the world of medicine.
A cure for a range of blood disorders and immune diseases may be a possibility in the near future after scientists identified a mechanism in the body that can naturally produce stem cells.
