The work represents a path forward by demonstrating the ability to reliably expand adult stem cells
from umbilical cord blood in the laboratory without terminally differentiating the cells into more mature and relatively short-lived blood cells.
The studies discussed in this article demonstrate that many commonly-used nutraceuticals may in fact produce their age-decelerating, organ-protecting, and life-extending effects at least in part by protecting adult stem cells
The researchers use some indicators in the cell lines to investigate whether expanded adult stem cells
have a long enough life span for future division in vivo or not.
The road to recovery began on the Internet, where he discovered that scientists were utilizing adult stem cells
to treat heart failure, and that this promising approach was under way close to his Florida home.
(New York, NY), which is pioneering the pre-disease collection, processing and long-term storage of adult stem cells
for future medical need, has filed a patent application claiming the proprietary stem cell technology of Vincent C.
Heart damage: Several clinical trials targeting heart disease have shown that adult stem cell
therapy is safe.
It's not clear reading articles reporting on stem cell research that there are two types of this research, one which we regard as unethical because it is upon human embryos and leads to their deaths, and the other adult stem cell
research which is entirely ethical and cells derived from - for instance - a newly born baby's umbilical cord and the placenta.
The resulting restrictive statutory provisions that ban SCNT ultimately arose from a convergence of rhetoric on dignity and the moral status of the embryo, and the resultant promotion of adult stem cell
ReNeuron is a leading, UK-based adult stem cell
An adult stem cell
is an undifferentiated cell that is found in specialized tissue and has the capacity to produce the specialized cell types from the tissue of origin.
One day it may be possible to take any adult stem cell
back to the embryonic, and hence protean, stage.
Then, Schroeder says, an adult stem cell
transplant gave her a new lease on life.
