Stem Cell Parkinson’s Model Devised for Drug Screening

A team from University at Buffalo created brain cells from adult stem cells that in lab tests display the same nerve misfirings seen in people with Parkinson’s disease. . . . → Read More: Stem Cell Parkinson’s Model Devised for Drug Screening

Crispr, Stem Cells Produce Precise Arthritis Therapy

Editing the genes in stem cells is shown to produce cartilage that in lab tests releases therapeutic proteins only when needed to relieve joint inflammation in arthritis. . . . → Read More: Crispr, Stem Cells Produce Precise Arthritis Therapy

Umbilical Cord Blood Evaluated for Autism Treatment

Results from a clinical trial show infusions of a child’s own umbilical cord blood are safe for treating autism spectrum disorder, and provide initial signs of effectiveness. . . . → Read More: Umbilical Cord Blood Evaluated for Autism Treatment

Genetic Techniques Speed Brain, Muscle Cell Production

A new technology targets the expression of genes in stem cells to produce specific brain and muscle cells on demand and in a few days, a fraction of the time now required. . . . → Read More: Genetic Techniques Speed Brain, Muscle Cell Production

Trial Begins Testing Enhanced Cord Blood Stem Cells

A clinical trial testing transplant grafts derived from umbilical cord blood as an alternative to bone marrow stem cells for people with blood-related cancers is treating its first patient. . . . → Read More: Trial Begins Testing Enhanced Cord Blood Stem Cells
