Newswise: New technique lays foundation for regenerative cardiac therapies

New technique lays foundation for regenerative cardiac therapies

Van Andel Institute

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Nov. 6, 2019) — Scientists have devised a technique to sort out which heart cells can replicate and which cannot, a critical step toward treatments that may one day help the heart heal itself after injury.

Micromotors push around single cells and particles

University of California San Diego

A new type of micromotor—powered by ultrasound and steered by magnets—can move around individual cells and microscopic particles in crowded environments without damaging them. In one demonstration, a micromotor pushed around silica particles to spell out letters. Researchers also controlled the micromotors to climb up microsized blocks and stairs, demonstrating their ability to move over three dimensional obstacles.

Newswise: Uncovering the Mechanisms Behind Magnetogenetics Could Advance Biomanufacturing

Uncovering the Mechanisms Behind Magnetogenetics Could Advance Biomanufacturing

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Magnetogenetics — the idea that you can use magnetic fields to control cells and activate cellular pathways — has immense potential in biomanufacturing, medicine, tissue regeneration, and biosensing. Despite its promise, the mechanism behind magnetogenetics remains largely unknown.

Newswise: Humans Have Salamander-Like Ability to Regrow Cartilage in Joints

Humans Have Salamander-Like Ability to Regrow Cartilage in Joints

Duke Clinical Research Institute

Contrary to popular belief, cartilage in human joints can repair itself through a process similar to that used by creatures such as salamanders and zebrafish to regenerate limbs, researchers at Duke Health found.

Newswise: $4.96 Million CIRM Grant Awarded to Sanford Burnham Prebys to Help the Tiniest Patients

$4.96 Million CIRM Grant Awarded to Sanford Burnham Prebys to Help the Tiniest Patients

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) has awarded a $4.96 million grant to Sanford Burnham Prebys Professor Evan Y. Snyder, M.D., Ph.D. The funding will allow Snyder to complete pre-investigational new drug (IND)-enabling studies, a step toward securing U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval of a human trial for neural stem cells as a potential treatment for newborns who experience oxygen and blood-flow deprivation during birth. Called perinatal hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (HII), the lack of oxygen and blood flow to the brain can cause cerebral palsy and other permanent neurological disorders.

Newswise: A Simple Method to Improve Heart-Attack Repair Using Stem Cell-Derived Heart Muscle Cells

A Simple Method to Improve Heart-Attack Repair Using Stem Cell-Derived Heart Muscle Cells

University of Alabama at Birmingham

The heart cannot regenerate muscle after a heart attack. Injecting heart muscle cells grown in vitro could help the failing heart, but engraftment rates are low. A new and simple method to improve the quality of the delivered cells has now been tested in mice, and it doubles the engraftment rate.

Functional Hair Follicles Grown from Stem Cells

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

Scientists from Sanford Burnham Prebys have created natural-looking hair that grows through the skin using human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a major scientific achievement that could revolutionize the hair growth industry. The findings were presented today at the annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) and received a Merit Award. A newly formed company, Stemson Therapeutics, has licensed the technology.
