A diamond edged weapon against cancer

Post Views: 238 By attaching the chemotherapy drug Epirubicin to nanodiamonds it may be possible to effectively destroy chemoresistant cancer stem cells says a study led by the National University of Singapore (NUS). Led by Assistant Professor Edward Chow, Junior Principal Investigator at the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI Singapore) at NUS, the study […]

New stem cells research opens another flank against MS

Post Views: 339 Individuals with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis have shown encouraging response to a treatment involving the transplantation of a particular form of stem cell. The treatment led to an improvement in their neurological disability, quality of life, and cognitive function. The study involved giving patients an intravenous infusion of their own (autologous) stem cells […]

Stem cells revive chemo damaged cognitive functions in study

Post Views: 243 Is it possible to reverse damage inflicted on cognitive functions by chemotherapy? Sure, say doctors based on studies with neural stem cells. The preclinical research conducted on rodents by scientists at UC Irvine has shown that neural stem cells could indeed reverse a range of cognitive functions ravaged by chemotherapy. The study […]

Team finds key to making neurons from stem cells

Post Views: 207 An RNA molecule called Pnky can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells according to a research team led by neurosurgeon Daniel A. Lim, M.D., Ph.D. at UC San Francisco. The finding could result in medical approaches for dealing more effectively with a range of neuro degenerative […]

Making stem cells work with anti-cancer drug

Post Views: 231 Researchers at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in Brazil have used a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved anti-cancer drug to grow dopamine-producing neurons derived from embryonic stem cells. These cells remained healthy and functional for as long as 15 months after implantation into mice and restored motor function […]

Neural stem cell implants create hope in Epilepsy treatment

Post Views: 288 University of Florida Health researchers have successfully transplanted human stem cells in a mouse model, which developed into fully functional neurons. This is being seen as a promising advance in the direction of unlocking new treatments for epilepsy and other neurological disorders. According to Dr Steven N. Roper, a neurosurgeon and professor […]

AIIMS to conduct study on stem cell therapy

Post Views: 373 Inspired by the encouraging results of stem cell therapy in the treatment of various diseases, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here is all set to start a clinical trial to establish the efficacy of the same. ‚ÄúSince 2003, we have been using stem cell therapy in 35 departments at […]

Study: Stem cell therapy is safe for stroke patients and may aid recovery if given early

Post Views: 206 A multicenter trial looking at whether a single dose of millions of adult, bone-marrow-derived stem cells can aid stroke recovery indicates it’s safe and well-tolerated by patients but may not significantly improve their recovery within the first three months, researchers report. However, the trial does provide evidence that giving the therapy early […]
