Health News - Stem Cell Research

Using stem cells to combat osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a common condition without a cure. A recent small-scale pilot study concludes that stem cell therapies could offer some hope. (Medical News Today)

Cancer: 'Off-the-shelf' stem cell treatment enters clinical trial
In a landmark clinical trial, researchers are making use of induced pluripotent stem cells for the first time in the United States. (Medical News Today)

New drug limits damage to heart muscle from heart attack
Cell death from a heart attack damages heart muscle. Blocking MAP4K4 — a protein that is key to this process — greatly reduced heart injury in mice. (Medical News Today)

New stem cells could be 'universally transplanted'
Researchers have designed a type of stem cell that should be able to withhold transplantation into any recipient without facing rejection. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: How stem cells can help repair the brain
A new review examines the past, present, and future of stem cell therapy for replacing damaged brain cells in Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

Simple drug formula regenerates brain cells
Scientists have shown how a drug cocktail of four compounds can convert glia, or support cells, next to damaged neurons into new working neurons. (Medical News Today)

Could stem cells reverse diabetes?
Previous attempts to develop insulin-producing cells from stem cells have not been completely successful. A recent study, however, offers fresh hope. (Medical News Today)

'Coaxing' stem cells to form new bone tissue
New research finds out how to drive stem cells to form new bone tissue, and these results could help improve outcomes for spinal surgeries. (Medical News Today)

Multiple sclerosis: Could this be why myelin fails to regenerate?
A study finds a previously unknown mechanism that quietens adult stem cells and could be a disruptor of myelin repair in inflammatory diseases, such as MS. (Medical News Today)

Honeybees may hold the secret to stem cell youth
The royal jelly that honeybees make to produce new queen bees seems to contain a secret ingredient that can keep stem cells 'young' and powerful. (Medical News Today)

Type 1 diabetes: Drawing nearer to treatment that generates new insulin cells
Scientists have mapped the signals in the cellular environment that determine whether immature pancreatic cells will produce insulin. (Medical News Today)

What are stem cells, and what do they do?
Stem cells are basic cells that can become almost any type of cell in the body. Human stem cells can come from an embryo or an adult human. They have many possible uses in science and medicine, yet controversy surrounds them. (Medical News Today)

Scientists create human esophagus in stem cell first
For the first time, scientists have created a human esophagus entirely from stem cells. The organoids may help treat conditions such as esophageal cancer. (Medical News Today)

Using cell metabolism to battle cancer
In a recent study, researchers investigated how cancer stem cells might be stopped in their tracks by blocking their metabolic pathways. (Medical News Today)

Cancer immunotherapy 'could be safer' with natural killer cells
CAR cancer immunotherapy using natural killer cells from stem cells could be as effective and less toxic than using modified versions of patients' T cells. (Medical News Today)

Could blocking these proteins stop breast cancer?
A study suggests that blocking certain epigenetic proteins with drugs could prevent women at high risk of breast cancer from developing the disease. (Medical News Today)

Why pesticides may cause Parkinson's in some people
New research unravels the genetic mechanisms that explain the well-documented link between pesticide exposure and Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

A 'metabolic switch' may explain why fasting boosts gut health
A study of mice shows that fasting for a day increases stem cell function in the gut by switching on fatty acid oxidation that can also be drug-activated. (Medical News Today)

Blocking melanoma's 'escape route'
A new study finds that, as melanoma tries to evade treatment, it differentiates into four subtypes. Some of these are vulnerable to treatment. (Medical News Today)

Breakthrough: Researchers fix Alzheimer's gene
In a first-of-its kind study, scientists use human neurons to study and correct the damaging effects of the APOE4 gene, a well-known genetic risk factor. (Medical News Today)

Space travel may hold the key to cardiac repair
New research — conducted both in space and on Earth — suggests that simulated microgravity could be used to boost stem-cell therapy for cardiac repair. (Medical News Today)

Multiple sclerosis: Skin cells may help to repair nerve damage
Researchers could be on the verge of a new treatment for multiple sclerosis; they reveal how transplanting neural stem cells derived from a patient's own skin could help to repair nerve damage caused by the disease. (Medical News Today)

This protein fuels triple-negative breast cancer
Researchers report that they have identified a new stem cell pathway that drives the development of highly aggressive triple-negative breast cancer. (Medical News Today)

How does high cholesterol cause cancer? Study sheds light
Researchers have discovered a cell mechanism in which cholesterol influences the proliferation of stem cells and the growth of intestinal tumors in mice. (Medical News Today)

Is chemo at the heart of cancer regrowth?
Researchers have discovered that chemotherapy provides the perfect backdrop for 'sleeping' cancer to churn out deadly cancer stem cells. (Medical News Today)
