Tiny Flies Could Lead to Understanding Potential for Non-embryonic Stem Cells

It has long been thought that cells that regenerate tissue do so by regressing to a developmentally younger state. Now two University of Washington researchers have demonstrated that cells can regenerate without becoming "younger."

Stem Cell Research Hints at Better Looking Cosmetic, Reconstructive Surgery

Stem cell researchers have shown how cosmetic surgery, such as wrinkle removal and breast augmentation, might be improved with natural implants that keep their original size and shape better than synthetics.

Embryonic Stem Cells Treated with Growth Factor Reverse Hemophilia in Mice

Mouse embryonic stem cells treated in culture with a growth factor and then injected into the liver reverse a form of hemophilia in mice analogous to hemophilia B in humans, a study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill shows.

Specialized, Rare Heart Stem Cells in Newborns

The first evidence of cardiac progenitor cells "“ rare, specialized stem cells located in the newborn heart of rats, mice and humans "“ has been shown by researchers at the UCSD. The cells are capable of differentiation into fully mature heart tissue.

Stem Cell Research Shows Potential for Replacing Tissue Damaged in Heart Attacks

A Medical College of Wisconsin research team, led by John W. Lough, Ph.D., professor of cell biology, neurobiology and anatomy has found that embryonic stem cells in animals can be cultivated to form new tissue, which eventually may help doctors learn how to replace tissue damaged as a result of a heart attack.

Researchers Race to Heal Injured Hearts with Adult Stem Cells

Once a mere fantasy, the idea of growing new, healthy heart tissue to replace damaged or diseased heart muscle is inching closer to reality. Researchers are exploring several routes to grow new heart muscle, according to the January issue of the Harvard Heart Letter.
