Adult stem cell
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after development, that multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Also known as somatic ...

Stop Overhyping Stem Cells, Say Scientists
Thanks to gushing coverage of athlete stem cell treatments, scientists say the public is becoming badly misinformed
Stem Cell Breakthrough Could Put An End To Daily Insulin Injections For Diabetics
People with type 1 diabetes have to inject insulin daily, and it often results in pain, redness, swelling, and itching at the injection site. But this could soon be a thing of the past, thanks to a ne...
On The Road From Stem Cells to Kidney Organoids
Embryonic stem cells are undifferentiated and have the potential to become almost any type of cell in the human body. Adult stem cells on the other hand are pre-programmed genetically to already be so...
A Barrier Against Brain Stem Cell Aging
Neural stem cells generate new neurons throughout life in the mammalian brain. However, with advancing age the potential for regeneration in the brain dramatically declines. Scientists of the Universi...
Engineered Hot Fat Implants Reduce Weight Gain In Mice
Scientists at UC Berkeley have developed a novel way to engineer the growth and expansion of energy-burning “good” fat, and then found that this fat helped reduce weight gain and lower blood glucose l...
Stem Cells Might Heal Damaged Lungs
Collectively, such diseases of the airways as emphysema, bronchitis, asthma and cystic fibrosis are the second leading cause of death worldwide. More than 35 million Americans alone suffer from chroni...
Hydrogels Boost Ability Of Stem Cells To Restore Eyesight And Heal Brains
Stem cells hold great therapeutic promise because of their ability to turn into any cell type in the body, including their potential to generate replacement tissues and organs. While scientists are ad...
Stem cell treatment halts MS progression in 91% of patients
A new stem cell treatment has sent most of the MS patients who tried it into remission, halting the progression of the disease even several years afterwards. The clinical study, led by Richard A. Nash...
Cancer-killing stem cells engineered in lab
Scientists from Harvard Medical School have discovered a way of turning stem cells into killing machines to fight brain cancer.
Scientists create breakthrough recipe to grow insulin-secreting cells by the billions - The Washington Post
Scientists announced a breakthrough that could one day free millions of diabetes sufferers from a lifetime of insulin injections. The discovery described in the journal Cell on Thursday and led by ste...
Damaged Livers Could be Saved Without Surgery By Injecting Tonsils Stem Cells
Scientists have found a promising way to repair damaged livers without surgery by injecting stem cells from tonsils, a body part we don't really need.
There Could Be Hope for Parkinson's Therapies in Neural Stem Cells
It seems an incredibly simplistic solution to dealing with the sick or dead neurons caused by degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s: replace them with healthy ones. But one day, in th...
Hematopoietic stem cell
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are the blood cells that give rise to all the other blood cells and are derived from mesoderm. They are located in the red bone marrow, which is contained in the core o...
Mesenchymal stem cell
Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), muscle cells an...

Endothelial stem cell
Endothelial stem cells (ESCs) are one of three types of stem cells found in bone marrow. They are multipotent, which describes the ability to give rise to many cell types, whereas a pluripotent stem c...

Neural stem cell
Neural stem cells (NSCs) are self-renewing, multipotent cells that generate the main phenotype of the nervous system. Stem cells are characterized by their capability to differentiate into multiple ce...
Stem cell therapy
Stem cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Bone marrow transplant is the most widely used stem cell therapy, but some therapies derived from umbilical cord ...

Skin cell gun
The skin cell gun, also known as the skin gun or SkinGun™, is a medical device that sprays a patient's own self-donated (autologous) stem cells to treat burns and other wounds. The skin gun is used i...
Stem cell controversy
The stem cell controversy is the consideration of the ethics of research involving the development, usage, and destruction of human embryos. Most commonly, this controversy focuses on embryonic stem ...
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the transplantation of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells, usually derived from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood. It may be au...
