The cancer stem cell theory proposes that, in tumors, there exist a sub-population of cells that possess characteristics of normal stem cells, specifically the ability to self-renew, and that these cells proliferate and sustain the cancer. Here is the latest research on stem and cancer cells.
Adult stem cells reside in unique niches that provide vital cues for their survival, self-renewal, and differentiation. They hold great promise for use in tissue repair and regeneration as a novel therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research.
Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
In autoimmune diseases, the immune system responds and attacks self-antigens and damages or impairs the function of the tissues. The treatment for autoimmune diseases often involves immunosuppressive agents, but newer treatments are being investigated. Discover the latest research on autoimmune disease therapy here.
The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
Brain Stem Neoplasms are cancers that are common in children and can occur in the mesencephalon, pons or medulla oblongata. Discover the latest research on Brain Stem Neoplasms here.
Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive type of brain tumor. It contains a population of tumor initiating stem cell-like cells known as cancer stem cells. Investigations are ongoing into these cancer stem cells found in these solid tumors which are highly resistance to treatment. Here is the latest research on cancer stem cells in glioblastoma.
Cardiac regeneration enables the repair of irreversibly damaged heart tissue using cutting-edge science, including stem cell and cell-free therapy. Discover the latest research on cardiac regeneration here.
mRNA-based technology is being studied as a potential technology that could be used to reprogram cell fate. This technique provides the potential to generate safe reprogrammed cells that can be used for clinical applications. Here is the latest research on cell fate conversion by mRNA.
Chromatin regulators affect gene expression by influencing the access of proteins such as transcription factors to DNA. Here is the latest research on the role of chromatin regulating proteins on cellular differentiation.
