UTRECHT (NL), August 2021 — In some children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), cancer cells have the same amount of DNA changes as healthy blood stem cells.

August 13, 2021

BALTIMORE, MD (US), August 2021 — Corneal endothelial cells (CECs) are essential for corneal transparency and proper vision. Loss of CEC function due to corneal diseases or surgical trauma can lead to corneal swelling with severe visual impairment.

August 9, 2021

TORONTO (CA), August 2021 – Princess Margaret Cancer Centre researchers have made new findings that provide a broader understanding of how dormant hematopoietic stem cells are activated.

CAMBRIDGE (UK), August 2021 — The heart is one of the major organs damaged by infection with SARS-CoV-2, particularly the heart cells (cardiomyocytes), which contract and circulate blood.

August 5, 2021

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (US), August 2021 — To speed up a chemical reaction, a chemist might place the reactants over a Bunsen burner. Adding heat increases the degree of random movements and collisions of particles, accelerating the reaction.

August 2, 2021

HOUSTON, TX (US), August 2021 — Stem cells in adult tissues are rare. When an injury occurs and damaged cells need to be replaced, the job often falls to differentiated, or mature, cells, rather than stem cells.

August 2, 2021

MADISON, WI (US), August 2021 — Stem cell research holds great potential for regenerative therapies and treatments to combat cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for over 30 percent of all deaths worldwide.

July 30, 2021

BEIJING (CN), July 2021 — Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is a recognized treatment option for certain blood and bone marrow cancers as well as some autoimmune and hereditary disorders.
