• Targeting key gene could help lead to Down syndrome treatment
    Using stem cells that can turn into other cells in the brain, researchers developed two experimental models a living 3D "organoid" model of the brain and a mouse brain model with implanted human cells to investigate early brain development linked to Down syndrome, according to the study in the journal Cell Stem Cell. The study focused on human chromosome 21 gene OLIG2.

  • Cancer cells are quick-change artists adapting to their environment
    Until now, researchers have assumed that the growth of solid tumors originates from cancer stem cells characterized by specific surface markers, which develop in a fixed, hierarchical order. Accordingly, such cancer stem cells are responsible for tumor progression and produce specific types of more differentiated cancer cells whose fates are predetermined.

  • Study reveals large molecular differences between stem cells grown on different biomaterials
    The genes necessary for the growth and survival of stem cells are influenced by the biomaterials on which theyre cultured, researchers at the University of Toronto have found.

  • Stem cells implanted into the brain stop epilepsy seizures in rats
    For people with severe epilepsy, no medication is effective – but a radical approach of implanting stem cells into the brain could stop seizures at their source.

  • Stem Cells Technology Will Pave the Way for Activists in the Cardiovascular Field
    “Stem cells, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine in cardiovascular system” is the title of a symposium held to provide the foundation for learning about and developing the updated activities of this field.
