Scientists have shown how a drug cocktail of four compounds can convert glia, or support cells, next to damaged neurons into new working neurons.
Previous attempts to develop insulin-producing cells from stem cells have not been completely successful. A recent study, however, offers fresh hope.
New research finds out how to drive stem cells to form new bone tissue, and these results could help improve outcomes for spinal surgeries.
A study finds a previously unknown mechanism that quietens adult stem cells and could be a disruptor of myelin repair in inflammatory diseases, such as MS.
The royal jelly that honeybees make to produce new queen bees seems to contain a secret ingredient that can keep stem cells 'young' and powerful.
Scientists have mapped the signals in the cellular environment that determine whether immature pancreatic cells will produce insulin.
Stem cells are basic cells that can become almost any type of cell in the body. Human stem cells can come from an embryo or an adult human. They have many possible uses in science and medicine, yet controversy surrounds them.
For the first time, scientists have created a human esophagus entirely from stem cells. The organoids may help treat conditions such as esophageal cancer.
In a recent study, researchers investigated how cancer stem cells might be stopped in their tracks by blocking their metabolic pathways.
CAR cancer immunotherapy using natural killer cells from stem cells could be as effective and less toxic than using modified versions of patients' T cells.
A study suggests that blocking certain epigenetic proteins with drugs could prevent women at high risk of breast cancer from developing the disease.
New research unravels the genetic mechanisms that explain the well-documented link between pesticide exposure and Parkinson's disease.
A study of mice shows that fasting for a day increases stem cell function in the gut by switching on fatty acid oxidation that can also be drug-activated.
A new study finds that, as melanoma tries to evade treatment, it differentiates into four subtypes. Some of these are vulnerable to treatment.
In a first-of-its kind study, scientists use human neurons to study and correct the damaging effects of the APOE4 gene, a well-known genetic risk factor.
