Stem cell therapy furthers research for infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome

A phase I clinical trial is the first research monitored by the Food and Drug Administration that demonstrates the potential of regenerative therapy for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) through collecting, processing and injecting an infant’s own stem cells directly

To assess a cell’s health, follow the glucose

A new spectroscopic technique reveals that glucose use in live cells provides valuable information about the functional status of cells, tissues, and organs. Shifts in a cell’s use of glucose can signal changes in health and progress of disease. How

Study pinpoints cell types affected in brains of multiple sclerosis patients

Scientists have discovered that a specific brain cell known as a ‘projection neuron’ has a central role to play in the brain changes seen in multiple sclerosis (MS). The research, published today in Nature, shows that projection neurons are damaged

New cell discovered that can heal hearts

University of Calgary researchers are the first to discover a previously unidentified cell population in the pericardial fluid found inside the sac around the heart. The discovery could lead to new treatments for patients with injured hearts. The study led

Slug, a stem cell regulator, keeps breast cells healthy by promoting repair of DNA damage

A new study published in Cell Reports found that a transcription factor called Slug serves as “command central” for determining breast stem cell health, regulating both stem cell activity and repair of DNA damage. The research team also discovered that

New alternate cell growth pathway could lead to better treatments for metastatic cancers

While researchers have a basic understanding of how primary cancer cells grow, less is known about metastasis, the deadly process by which cancers spread. A team led by Dr. Paul Krebsbach, dean of UCLA’s School of Dentistry and professor of
