Another stem cell research article

Human Stem Cells Produce Healthy Neural Stem Cells In Rats 20 February 2008

Neural cells derived from human embryonic stem cells helped repair stroke-related damage in the brains of rats and led to improvements in their physical abilities after a stroke, in a new study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

This study marks the first time researchers have used human embryonic stem cells to generate neural cells that grow well ...

Stem cells for diabetes

I was giving up this site for Lent but lasted 3 days!

Interesting article about stem cells for diabetes which shows how fast this area is moving.

Bone marrows stem cells convert to oligodendrocytes

http://www.msaustralia.org.au/hot_news/read_more.html
The group harvested stem cells from the bone marrow of mice and humans, then inserted them into the brains of mice with a disease that closely resembles MS in humans. They found that the stem cells changed into several different kinds of cells: most importantly, many converted into cells called oligodendrocytes,which manufacture 'white matter'.
But the experiments suggest only areas of fresh damage might be treatable. In the mice tested, the loss of myelin appeared ...

Scaffold for stem cells

Stem cell scaffolding repairs nerves 31 January 2008

A Monash University PhD student has developed a new technique that could revolutionise stem cell treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injuries.


David Nisbet from Monash University's Department of Materials Engineering has used existing polymer-based biodegradable fibres, 100 times smaller than a human hair, and re-engineered them to create a unique 3-D scaffold that could potentially allow stem cells to repair damaged nerves in ...

Stem cell lines created without destroying embryo

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=344588
In a bid to sidestep the ethical debate over the use of human embryos in medical research, scientists have developed a way to derive viable stem cell lines without harming the embryo.

They did so by extracting a single cell from the embryo — as in vitro fertilization clinics do when they test for genetic defects and introducing a common molecule called laminin to keep it in a stem cell, or pluripotent, state.

Subsequent development ...

Teen takes on donor's immune system

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/01/24/2145289.htm?section=world


Demi-Lee Brennan had a liver transplant after she suffered liver failure. Nine months later, doctors at Sydney's Westmead Children's Hospital were amazed to find the teenager's blood group had changed to the donor's blood type.

Further tests revealed the stem cells from the donor liver had penetrated her bone marrow.
