WASHINGTON - Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have moved a step closer to transforming embryonic stem cells into a multipurpose medical tool, for they have successfully transformed these versatile cells into progenitors of white blood cells and into six types of mature white blood and immune cells.
WASHINGTON - A team of U.S. scientists has identified phosphorylated signalling proteins in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) studying which may help understand the mechanisms that determine whether stem cells divide or differentiate, what types of cells they become, and how to control those complex mechanisms to facilitate development of new therapies.
Journal retracts claim of sperm made of stem cells
LONDON — A scientific journal has retracted a controversial paper claiming to have created the first human sperm from embryonic stem cells.
LONDON - A report claiming that scientists have created sperm-like cells from human embryonic stem cells has been retracted by a journal that published it three weeks ago, as it has attracted controversy.
NY taxpayers to pay donors for stem cell studies
NEW YORK — Hanqi Miao said she wanted to donate her eggs to help infertile couples reproduce, but she acknowledged the money is good, too: She said she’ll be paid about $5,000.
WASHINGTON - Researchers have found a way to directly convert spermatogonial stem cells, precursors of sperm cells, into tissues of the prostate, skin and uterus.
SYDNEY - The humble sea sponge could potentially advance stem cell research, according to scientists.
WASHINGTON - Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a new method to directly convert male germ cells-spermatogonial stem cells, the precursors of sperm cells-into other cell types like tissues of the prostate, skin and uterus.
LONDON - Imperial College London scientists claim that they have moved a step closer to making replacement bones for patients with damaged or fractured bones using stem cell technology.
LONDON - Scientists have edged closer to growing replacement bones with stem cell technology.
Molly Stevens, professor at Imperial College London and author of a new study said: “Our study brings us one step closer to developing materials that will have the highest chance of success when implanted into patients.”
