Study reveals new link to arthritis

A new study by investigators at the Shriners Hospital for Children—St. Louis suggests the damaging effects of obesity are not due to body weight but rather come from something much smaller—biochemical signals released ...

Researchers create human airway stem cells from patients' cells

For the first time, researchers have successfully created airway basal stem cells in vitro from induced pluripotent stem cells by reprogramming blood cells taken from patients. Given that airway basal cells are defined as ...

New bioengineering approach to fix fetal membranes

New research led by Queen Mary University of London and UCL has shown that small bioengineered molecules can be used to repair defects in the fetal membranes that surround and protect babies developing in the womb.

Harnessing the body's ability to heal

Researchers at Mayo Clinic are studying ways to engineer human-like tissue to bolster the body's ability to heal itself. Scientists in the Regenerative Medicine Biomaterials and Biomolecules Lab have engineered biomaterials ...

Diabetes

First immune-evading cells created to treat type 1 diabetes

Salk Institute scientists have made a major advance in the pursuit of a safe and effective treatment for type 1 diabetes, an illness that impacts an estimated 1.6 million Americans with a cost of $14.4 billion annually.

Researchers create heart cells from stem cells using 3-D printing

All humans start out from a single cell which then divides to eventually form the embryo. Depending on the signals sent by their adjacent cells, these divided cells are then developed or differentiated into specific tissues ...

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine refers a group of biomedial approches to healing that involve stem cells. One is the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells (stem cell treatments); another the induction of regeneration by introduced substances; and a third is transplantion of in vitro grown organs and tissues.
