Scientists may soon be able to find novel ways to treat hepatitis C using a new laboratory model developed by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.
U.K. researchers have performed a successful retina transplant in blind mice using light-detecting cells grown from embryonic stem cells.
Mesenchymal stem cells are capable of differentiating into bone and cartilage, as well as muscle, fat and tendon. A new technique that tracks stem cells after transplantation may help increase the effectiveness of such procedures.
The U.K. could be lagging behind in regenerative medicine and missing out on opportunities to translate basic science to commercially viable treatments, a new report by Parliament's House of Lords found.
A study purporting a breakthrough in human embryonic stem cell cloning that was published last week has come under fire when its authors admitted that there were some minor errors made when preparing the figures for initial submission.
In what is being considered a major advancement in the field of stem cell research, researchers have used a cloning method to successfully reprogram human skins cells into embryonic stem cells.
A new, placenta-based cell therapy may be effective at thwarting a common medical complication during pregnancy that can put both mother and child at risk, and in rare cases, cause death.
Researchers have transformed human embryonic stem cells into nerve cells that helped mice regain the ability to learn and remember, a notable feat in stem cell research that could lead to new models for drug screening and discovery.
In what may be the first experiment of its kind, researchers have used microvesicles derived from mesenchymal bone marrow cells to treat brain cancer.
Scientists may be one step closer to using stem cells to treat patients with Parkinson's disease. International Stem Cell Corp. has developed a method to treat the common neurodegenerative disease by replacing lost neurons with new neuronal cells derived from human parthenogenetic stem cells.
