Newswise: Blood Stem Cell Research

Blood Stem Cell Research

University of Delaware

A nanoparticle carrier system that could eliminate the need for bone marrow transplants, which are both expensive and difficult for patients to undergo. The University of Delaware's Emily Day, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, is developing a platform that could treat stem cells directly without the need to remove them from the body.

Pathogenic Alzheimer’s disease cascade is activated by faulty norepinephrine signaling

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Preclinical research has revealed a key missing piece of the Alzheimer’s disease puzzle. That allowed proof-of-concept experiments — using an existing drug — that dramatically reduced Alzheimer’s pathology and symptoms in mouse models, potentially offering an immediate treatment for this disease.

Mutations in Donors’ Stem Cells May Cause Problems for Cancer Patients

Washington University in St. Louis

A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggests that extremely rare, harmful genetic mutations present in healthy donors’ stem cells — though not causing health problems in the donors — may be passed on to cancer patients receiving stem cell transplants, potentially creating health problems for the recipients. Among the concerns are heart damage, graft-versus-host disease and possible new leukemias.
