Health News - Stem Cell Research

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)

Cancer stem cells destroyed by drug-filled nanoparticles
Scientists show how drug-laden nanoparticles can find and destroy cancer stem cells that hide in tissue for years before causing the cancer to return. (Medical News Today)

How gene therapy saved a little boy's life
Epidermolysis bullosa gives rise to painful blisters and chronic wounds. Doctors were sure that one little boy was going to lose his life — but he didn't. (Medical News Today)

Are stem cells and regenerative medicine living up to their promises?
The use of stem cells, materials, or molecules to regenerate tissues and organs promises to revolutionize medicine. How long until this becomes reality? (Medical News Today)

Heart failure could be treated using umbilical cord stem cells
In the first study of its kind, researchers find that stem cells derived from the umbilical cord can be used to treat heart failure. (Medical News Today)

Monkeys with Parkinson's disease benefit from human stem cells
One of the last steps before treating patients with an experimental cell therapy for the brain is confirmation that the therapy works in monkeys. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: Asthma drugs may cut risk by a third
A study including cell cultures, experiments in mice, and an overview of more than 100 million prescriptions shows asthma drugs lower Parkinson's risk. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: Stem cells restore nerve function in monkeys
Scientists have created dopaminergic neurons from human stem cells and implanted them in monkeys with Parkinson's, restoring their nerve function. (Medical News Today)

Are stem cells the link between bacteria and cancer?
Gastric carcinoma is one of the most common causes of cancer-related deaths, primarily because most patients present at an advanced stage of the disease. (Medical News Today)

How do broken bones heal?
Find out what gives our bones their remarkable ability to heal breaks in a finely tuned process that involves stem cells, cartilage, and bone. (Medical News Today)

Novel stem cell-derived model created of inflammatory neurological disorder
Brain-in-a-dish approach also showed two existing HIV drugs may be effective in rescuing mutated cells. (Medical News Today)

Hair growth stimulated using stem cells
Using 3-D organoids made from stem cells, scientists managed to uncover a six-step process by which hair grows and stimulated hair growth. (Medical News Today)
