Wonders may not cease where stem cell treatment is concerned. Recently stem cell treatment has been applied on human, as a case of Phase I trial and the doctors are quite optimistic since it has been successful in animals.
The rules, the agency said, lay out which research is eligible for federal funding and help “ensure that NIH-funded research in this area is ethically responsible, scientifically worthy and conducted in accordance with applicable law.”
Stem cell has been a boon to the modern medical research, and it has been creating success stories almost everyday. The research regarding stem cell therapy creates another success story again in treating spinal cord injury. Full article »
A team leaded by an Indian Scientist, Dr. Deepak Srivastava, discovered a new mechanism in molecular biology, which are the primary reason of the diseases such as atherosclerosis and Alzheimer disease. Will stem cell treating these defects find a cure to these diseases?
A new protein known as TERT has been discovered which was previously known to be effective in regenerating DNA telomere. But presently a research shows that this preotein is potent to make adult stem cells divide. What does that indicate?
Can we see a new light in Alzheimer treatment with the injection of GCSF, a human growth factor? While, application has been success in mice, but when is the human clinical trial?
Recently a group of Dutch researchers have revealed that inactivation of one of the X chromosome happens to occur before the female embryo gets implanted to the mother’s womb. This revealation has long way to go in ES cell research.
Although genetically identical how can the ES cells differ in phenotype from the iPS cells? In a recent finding by the UCLA researchers, it has been proved that the molecular signatures are distinct. But still tests are pending to reveal the mystery.
Studying with human embryonic stem cells Harvard University scientists able to discovered a master heart stem cell, which con provide new fast and authentic ways for drug development.
Stem cell is all ready to set another array of success story in ophthalmic treatment. Congenital retinal degeneration or retinal degeneration, a major cause of blindness, related to ageing can be repaired by the incorporation of stem cells. It has not been tested clinically till now, but has been successful in animal testing. It promises a bright future.
