Accelerated healing isn't just for superheroes. A new study suggests a way that mere mortals can potentially speed their recovery from a wide variety of injuries.
A team led by Tsinghua University professor Kekhooi Kee, Ph.D., is researching how gravity affects the development of human embryonic stem cells in space.
Scientists at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg have succeeded in turning human stem cells derived from skin samples into tiny, three-dimensional brain-like cultures that behave very similarly to cells in the human midbrain.
Researchers have uncovered a mechanism through which a mutation in the STAT3 gene leads to a disorder in the development of the pancreas and to infant diabetes.
– Researchers have found a promising way to preserve sperm stem cells so boys can undergo cancer treatment without risking their fertility.
A team of biomedical engineering researchers has created a revolutionary 3D-bioprinted patch that can help heal scarred heart tissue after a heart attack. The discovery is a major step forward in treating patients with tissue damage after a heart attack.
Researchers have developed a new approach for growing and studying cells they hope one day will lead to a cure for lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis through personalized medicine.
A new study has found that stem cell therapy can reduce lung inflammation in an animal model of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. Although still at a pre-clinical stage, these findings have important potential implications for the future treatment of patients.
A new study shows that a class of heart failure drugs might decrease low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels in patients who do not respond to statins.
