MELBOURNE (AU), March 2020 — A has revealed that a bacterial superbug can prevent stem cells in the gut from carrying out their vital role of regenerating the inner lining of the intestine. This causes potentially severe disease, particularly in the elderly.
ZURICH (SW), March 2020 — On March 6 at 11:50 p.m. EST, the International Space Station resupply mission Space X CRS-20 took off from Cape Canaveral (USA). On board: 250 test tubes from the University of Zurich containing adult human stem cells.
DRESDEN (DE), March 2020 — A Franco-German research team led by Michael Sieweke, Ph.D., from the Center for Regenerative Therapies TU Dresden (CRTD) and the Center of Immunology of Marseille Luminy (CNRS, INSERM, Aix-Marseille University), today uncovered a surprising prope
LONDON (UK), March 2020 — A study of the second HIV patient to undergo successful stem cell transplantation from donors with a HIV-resistant gene, finds that there was no active viral infection in the patient's blood 30 months after they stopped anti-retroviral therapy, according
FARMINGTON, CT (US), March 2020 — A population of stem cells with the ability to generate new bone has been discovered by a group of researchers at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine.
WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (US), March 2020 — Pools of stem cells in the apical meristems of plants are key to continued growth and development.
STOCKHOLM (SE), March 2020 — Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have analyzed all cell types in the human ovary and found that the hotly debated so-called egg stem cells do not exist.
LEUVEN (BE), March 2020 — In the event of a bone fracture, fatty acids in our blood signal to stem cells that they have to develop into bone-forming cells. If there are no blood vessels nearby, the stem cells end up forming cartilage.
STOCKHOLM (SE), March 2020 — Our skin protects us from physical injury, radiation and microbes, and at the same time produces hair and facilitates perspiration. Details of how skin cells manage such disparate tasks have so far remained elusive.
