Study could explain link between high-cholesterol diet and colon cancer

Added: 23.09.2018 17:41 | 1 views | 0 comments

Scientists discovered that boosting mice's cholesterol levels spurred intestinal stem cells to divide more quickly, enabling tumors to form 100 times faster. The study identifies a molecular pathway that could serve as a new drug target for colon cancer treatment.

Human skeletal stem cells identified

Added: 21.09.2018 5:17 | 12 views | 0 comments

Human skeletal stem cells that become bone, cartilage, or stroma cells have been isolated from fetal and adult bones. This is the first time that skeletal stem cells, which had been observed in rodent models, have been identified in humans. The researchers were also able to derive the skeletal stem cells from human induced pluripotent stem cells, opening up new therapeutic possibilities.

Scientists grow human esophagus in lab

Added: 21.09.2018 5:17 | 12 views | 0 comments

Scientists working to bioengineer the entire human gastrointestinal system in a laboratory now report using pluripotent stem cells to grow human esophageal organoids. This is the first time scientists have been able to grow human esophageal tissue entirely from pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), which can form any tissue type in the body.

Zika vaccine shows promise for treating deadly brain cancer

Added: 18.09.2018 21:20 | 7 views | 0 comments

Researchers have successfully deployed a Zika virus vaccine to target and kill human glioblastoma brain cancer stem cells, which had been transplanted into mice. In a new study, the team shows that a live, attenuated version of the Zika virus could form the basis of a new treatment option for this fatal brain cancer.
