...have identified adult stem cells of the central nervous system in a single layer of cells at the back of the eye. Amazingly, these cells are produced in the embryo...

Cells Optimize Their Tasks

...mileage. In the heyday of “faster, better, cheaper” spacecraft, engineers often joked, “pick any two.” In the same way, living cells have to optimize their operations. A couple of recent...

Follow the Stem Cell Money

adult stem cells for heart failure.” New Scientist: “Breast-milk stem cells may bypass ethical dilemmas.” PhysOrg:  “Reprogramming stem cells to a more basic form results in more effective transplant, study...

Preventing Aging Through Darwin-Free Science

...donating cells that can be regenerated like new: “Older stem cells are not as robust as young ones,” this article claimed.  If they are robust, why not store them like...

Human Cloning Advanced Despite Ethics

...has shown conclusively that embryonic stem cells are better than iPSCs.  Meanwhile, exciting advances continue to pour forth on adult stem cells, as shown by a recent Science Daily article. ...

Are Embryonic Stem Cells Obsolete?

infused with retinal cells derived from embryonic stem cells, but it was not clear that adult stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) couldn’t work just as well.  In...

When Science Gets Political

...that success with adult stem cells is not “a panacea that make embryonic stem cells redundant”.  His article did not mention ethics.  A Nature editorial August 4 also presented cautious...

Cells Have Dimmer Switches

the Salk Institute “shows that a short segment on p53 is needed to fine-tune the protein’s activity in blood-forming stem cells and their progeny after they incur DNA damage.”  Geoffrey...

Stem Cell News

Stem cells continue to be hot subjects for research.  They are divided into two basic “political” parties: embryonic stem cells (ES), which raise ethical issues about tampering with human life,...

Inner Ear Hair Cells Overcome Friction

The cochlea, that spiral-shaped structure in the inner ear, is filled with fluid.  In this fluid, tiny hair cells called stereocilia are positioned in bundles along the length of the...

Embryonic Stem Cells Left in iPS Dust

embryonic stem cells as one of the two sources of stem cells, it did not produce any evidence that embryonic stem cells are effective – only the iPS cells. Vision...

Embryonic Stem Cell Decision Overturned

made with adult stem cells.  For instance, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) might be able to treat immune diseases, Medical Xpress reported.  An article on Science Daily detailed the major...

Adult Stem Cell Advances Continue

The momentum for stem cell therapy is still on the side of adult stem cells (ASC), not embryonic stem cell (ESC) research.  Here are some recent findings: Blood vessel repair: ...

Tipping Point for Embryonic Stem Cells?

embryonic stem cells (hESC).  The article says that iPS cells meet the “gold standard” of pluripotency.  In addition, new methods are speeding the tests for pluripotency of iPS cells. Hearty...
