Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have succeeded in explaining how stem cells in the brain change to allow one type of stem cell to produce different cell types at different stages. … Continue Reading First known molecular signalling control for neurogenesis identified.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have determined the specific type of cell that gives rise to large, disfiguring tumours called plexiform neurofibromas, a finding that could lead to new therapies … Continue Reading Researchers identify cell-of-origin for plexiform neurofibroma tumours.
Scientists have discerned recognition and location in a new study. Researchers at University of California have induced both of these brain states permanently in rats and from what is observed … Continue Reading Scientists differentiate recognition and location physiology in the brain.
Mice and humans share a lot more than immediately meets the eye, and their commonalities include their telomeres, protective ends on chromosomes. But in recent years, the role of one … Continue Reading Study resolves decade-long argument over protein’s role at telomeres.
For most cancer patients, primary tumours are often not the most deadly. Instead, it is the metastatic tumours – tumours that spread from their original location to other parts of … Continue Reading New MEMS is the first to capture and classify CTC’s by phenotype.
A team of scientists led by The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute successfully created a human stem cell disease model of Parkinson’s disease in a dish. Studying … Continue Reading Scientists create precision genetics model of Parkinson’s Disease in a dish.
A University of Colorado Cancer Center study describes the activity of a recently discovered communication molecule of the body’s immune system, Interleukin 37 or IL-37. It has been known to … Continue Reading From HIV to cancer, Interleukin 37 (IL-37) regulates the immune system.
Fat and sugar aren’t usually considered healthy staples, but scientists at Georgia Regents University have found that a biological fat with a sugar attached is essential for maintaining the brain’s … Continue Reading Scientists identify molecule essential to maintaining the brain’s supply of stem cells.
Analysis of 607 small cell lung cancer (SCLC) lung tumours and neuroendocrine tumours (NET) identified common molecular markers among both groups that could reveal new therapeutic targets for patients with … Continue Reading Multiple new molecular biomarkers identified for lung cancer in large-scale study.
A research group from the Cluster of Excellence at the TU Dresden (CRTD) demonstrated for the first time the in vitro growth of a piece of spinal cord in three … Continue Reading Spatially, anatomically correct spinal cord grown in the lab for the first time.
A Mount Sinai-led research team has discovered a new kind of stem cell that can become either a liver cell or a cell that lines liver blood vessels. The existence … Continue Reading Researchers discover new type of stem cell.
Investigators from the Université de Montréal have announced the discovery of a new molecule, named UM171, which allows for the multiplication of stem cells in a unit of cord blood. Umbilical … Continue Reading New molecule seen multiplying stem cells in a unit of cord blood in study.
For decades, researchers have used petri dishes to study cell movement. These classic tissue culture tools, however, only permit two-dimensional movement, very different from the three-dimensional movements that cells make … Continue Reading Penn-NIH team discover new type of cell movement.
Researchers at the Babraham Institute, in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Single Cell Genomics Centre, have developed a powerful new single-cell technique to help investigate how the environment … Continue Reading New technique maps life’s effects on human DNA.
Half of patients in a trial have safely stopped immunosuppressant medication following a modified blood stem-cell transplant for severe sickle cell disease, according to a study in the Journal of … Continue Reading Adults stop anti-rejection drugs after partial stem-cell transplant reverses sickle cell disease.
