In 2005 WiCell, a nonprofit organization affiliated with the University of Wisconsin was charged with creating and maintaining a national embryonic stem cell bank supported by the Federal Government. At that time the 21 embryonic stem cell lines that were approved by former president George W. Bush's administration were made available for researchers. The importance [...]
This effort linked single-letter alterations in the genetic code -- known as single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs -- with people of known ethnic origins. This data provided a way to identify the ethnic heritage of a donor of any cell.
The rats that received the cardiac specific stem cells had both preservation of cardiac function, and also regeneration of the damaged heart tissue.
In addition to the possible use of Stem-Kine for restoration/maintenance of circulating endothelial progenitor cells, the publication discusses the possibility of using such cells from sources outside of the body, for example cord blood.
Adenosine inhibits chemotaxis and induces hepatocyte-specific genes in bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells
One of the major questions with adult stem cell therapy is how do the stem cells go to where they are needed?
Pfizer signed a deal worth $111 million with Athersys involving development of the MultiStem product in the area of inflammatory bowel disease.
