Researchers discover ancient virus DNA remnants necessary for pluripotency in humans
Major breakthrough in stem cell manufacturing technology
Scientists at The University of Nottingham have developed a new substance which could simplify the manufacture of cell therapy in the pioneering world of regenerative medicine.
Proteins that control energy use necessary to form stem cells
Proteins that regulate energy metabolism are essential for stem cell formation, University of Washington researchers find.
A safe, cheap and effective method for slow-freezing human stem cells
Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) show great potential and versatility in regenerative medicine and new therapeutic approaches to fight disease. Patient-specific, individualized treatments using stem cells ...
Technique to make human embryonic stem cells more closely resemble true epiblast cells
Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) have the ability to both convert into any cell type in the human body and to proliferate indefinitely in the laboratory. However, cultured hESCs, which are plucked from ...
First evidence that very small embryonic-like stem cells from human adult tissues are multipotent
Rare, very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) isolated from human adult tissues could provide a new source for developing regenerative therapies to repair complex tissues damaged by disease or trauma. ...
