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 ...

Post brain injury: New nerve cells originate from neural ste

Sometimes I see these articles and think "ok, didn't we know that already? why don't you shoot them into someone's head now!"

Post brain injury: New nerve cells originate from neural stem cells

Most cells in the human brain are not nerve cells, but supporting cells (glial cells). They serve as a framework for nerve cells and play an important role in the wound reaction that occurs with injuries to the brain. However, ...

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 ...
