Melbourne, Dec. 5 (ANI): Scientists are developing a 'biopen' that contains stem cells and growth factors, to repair damaged and diseased bone.
Washington, Dec 04 (ANI): Researches have successfully grown extensive numbers of intestinal stem cells and then coax them to develop into different types of mature intestinal cells.
New gene breakthrough brings colon cancer cure closer to reality Dec 2, 11:26 am
Washington, Dec 02 (ANI): Researchers have discovered a promising new approach to treating colorectal cancer by disarming the gene that drives self-renewal in stem cells that are the root cause of disease, resistance to treatment and relapse.
Washington, Dec 02 (ANI): Researchers have found that prostate cancer can develop in one type of stem cell, then evolve to be maintained by a stem cell that looks very different, making prostate cancer stem cells a "moving target" for treatments.
Washington, Dec 02 (ANI): Scientists have succeeded in transforming human stem cells into functional lung and airway cells, thus giving way to the possibility of generating lung tissue for transplant using a patient's own cells.
First ever retrograde gene therapy performed on human heart Dec 1, 2:32 pm
