Scientists at Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine has made a ground breaking invention, which eliminates the use of virus in stem cell research. The scientists have engineered a method by which differentiated adult stem cells can also be turned into pluripotent stem cells.
A team of influential venture capitalists and medical researchers with strong ties to Boston’s biotechnology community is putting cash and top-drawer talent into the new wave of stem cell technology.
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.
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.
The ban on embryonic stem cell research has pushed back US almost a decade in stem cell research. It feels heavy competition from other European countries and from Australia who has taken the highest leap in this field of research. So why the “Bio tech Giant”- US faltering behind in stem cell research? Its because the last eight year lag.
Stem cell can also create mental bondage, can create new families, it can create a true sense of pure blood relations
Scientists are aiming at converting stem cells into sperm cells. A bit confused about the idea? Yes, its true.
Once again a 29 years old man who had severe injury in the upper cervical cord in a road accident (two years ago) achieved significant improvement after having successful stem cell therapy at the Salem Manipal Hospital, India.
