A new study reports the results of a trial comparing intra‐articular injection of umbilical cord MSCs for the treatment of human knee osteoarthritis

March 18, 2019 | ESCs/iPSCs

New research highlights the influence of a GPCR effector on the maintenance of hESC pluripotency and the successful reprogramming of fibroblasts to hiPSCs

A study reports on the factors controlling improved platelet engraftment of umbilical cord blood progenitors by osteoblast conditioned medium treatment

March 4, 2019 | Haematopoetic Stem Cells

Researchers describe how transcription factor cooperation aids the generation of hemogenic precursors from human fibroblasts via an endothelial intermediate

February 25, 2019 | Bone Marrow Stem Cells

A new study finds that targeting the cAMP‐CREB1‐HDAC8 axis in BMSCs may represent an effective therapeutic approach for fibrous dysplasia patients

February 25, 2019 | Mesenchymal Stem Cells

New research reports that young MSCs promote more rapid wound healing than old MSCs and uncovers single-cell age-related transcriptional differences
