HSCT shows signs of restoring nerves

I think this is the same Canadian team that Bromley has been posting about, but with an emphasis on repair that I haven't seen before, (I've probably just missed it). The fact that improvement has taken two years to show somehow makes it seem more credible: a friend of mine had a nerve transplant in his arm which took two years to connect – and that, of course, was his peripheral nervous system – professor ...

UK to allow use of hybrid embryos

The British parliament has voted to allow the use of hybrid embryos in order to advance stem cell research. It's a subject that raises blood pressure in lots of people, but I agree with the man who said, " try everything":
MPs vote to allow scientists use hybrid embryos for Stem Cell research
Scientists have been given the green light to use animal-human hybrid embryos for medical research after MPs yesterday resisted calls for ...

Interferon and stem cells

It's what we've all been dreaming of: a way to combine one of the most promising future MS treatments with the crap we're currently stuck with!


Stem cell based delivery of IFN-beta reduces relapses in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

placenta stem cells used for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Celgene Cellular Therapeutics Announces Clinical Transplant of Human Placenta-Derived Stem Cells

Celgene Cellular Therapeutics (CCT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ: CELG), today announced the clinical application of a human placenta-derived stem cells (HPDSCs) for hematopoietic reconstitution. The groundbreaking transplant occurred at the LSU Health Sciences Center Children’s Hospital (LSU) on March 28, 2008 to treat a pediatric patient with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the bone marrow and blood. Following ...

phase 2 trial to treat stroke

This is interesting to me because,
The twin objectives of the regimen are to stimulate the growth and differentiation of new neurons to replace the brain cells that were lost or damaged by the stroke, and importantly, to direct motor, visual and cognitive recovery after acute ischemic stroke.

UK stem cell researcher

I'd hope they can do better than 15 years. Thankfully, there is other stem cell research in the UK e.g. Professor Scolding, where an early pilot trial has begun.

Bone marrow trial in Kentucky

If someone on here tries this and it is a success you owe me a $100 (that's fair isn't it?)

Stem Cell Research Is Growing Again

Scientists in stem cell breakthough

That second one is about part-human, part-animal hybrid stem cells. I am thinking maybe they can turn people with MS into mice so they can benefit from all the drug trials we hear about.

Therapeutic Cloning Works in Mice With Parkinson's

MONDAY, March 24 (HealthDay News) -- Therapeutic cloning successfully treated Parkinson's disease in mice, researchers report.

Using the process to develop dopamine-producing neurons with an identical genetic profile to each mouse being treated allowed scientists to significantly improve the neurological performance of the diseased animals, without provoking any evidence of immune system rejection.

"This is the first ...
