When most cells divide, they simply make more of themselves. But stem cells, which are responsible for repairing or making new tissue, have a choice: They can generate more stem cells or...
Development could pave way for improved therapeutics for patients with immune disorders.Researchers in Singapore have artificially generated new mouse blood and immune cells from skin cells.
Using stem cells, scientists grew complex 3D skin tissue - complete with hair follicles and sebaceous glands - that connected with nerves and muscle fibers when implanted in mice.
Chronic non-healing wounds, common in patients with diabetes and paraplegia, affect over 6.5 million people annually and cost an estimated $25 billion a year in treatment alone in the United States.
A team of European researchers has devised a strategy to ensure that adult epidermal stem cells are safe before they are used as treatments for patients.
Cancer researchers have found an unexpected association between the macrophages of the immune system and regenerative skin stem cells.
There are plenty of body parts that don't grow back when you lose them. Nails are an exception, and a new study published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) reveals some of...
Parcell Laboratories, developer of novel therapeutics based on its patented adult stem cell platform technology, the ELA® cell, is partnering with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) to study a new stem cell-based wrinkle reduction treatment.
Young animals are known to repair their tissues effortlessly, but can this capacity be recaptured in adults? A new study from researchers at the Stem Cell Program at Boston Children's Hospital suggests that it can.
