Bone marrow chilling could warm the body

Bone marrow chilling could warm the body

In order to keep warm during cold exposure, heat production must be increased. This can be achieved through non-shivering and shivering thermogenesis. The main tissue involved in non-shivering thermogenesis is brown adipose tissue (BAT) which is located

FTIR spectroscopy and ımaging to understand donor age effect on bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells

FTIR Spectroscopy and Imaging to Understand Donor Age Effect on Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Stem cells, like Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), have enormous potential to develop new therapies for tissue regeneration and repair with their ability to differentiate into many different types of cells. The aging process and the

Under pressure: a stem cell’s journey home

A Stem Cell’s Journey Home

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing in pure oxygen at an air pressure three times higher than atmospheric pressure. This allows more oxygen to enter the lungs, dissolve into the circulation, and ultimately reach cells. The future

The importance of immature cancer cells in predicting patient outcome

The word “cure” for breast or any other type of cancer might be unfair to a patient since this will give the individual a false sense of comfort. The misuse of `cure’ is evident in breast cancer

Tissue-specific MED1 LxxLL motifs play critical roles in HER2-driven breast cancers

Estrogen Receptor (ER)  is a nuclear hormone receptor that plays important roles in normal mammary gland development as well as breast cancer growth and metastases. In a breast cancer setting, when ER is bound by estradiol, there is

Stem cells accept the degradation products of Poly (ε-caprolactone)

One of the serious health issues experiencing by humans in the world are accidental injuries and associated complications. Treatment strategies for these injuries are depending on their severity and age of the person gets injured. Among this,

2nd Annual Summit on Cell Therapy and Stem Cell Research. Atlanta, Georgia, USA. November 9-10, 2018

Conferenceseries welcomes you to attend the 2nd Annual Summit on Cell Therapy and Stem Cell Research during November 9 – 10, 2018 at Atlanta, Georgia, USA. We cordially invite all the participants from all over the world who are interested in sharing

Metformin and stem cells act synergistically to treat insulin resistance

One of the principle defects of type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance which is the inability of insulin to exert a biological action at the level of its target tissue viz. muscle, fat and liver. Metformin is

Grafting stem cells in 3D arrays

Neural transplantation has continued to show promise as an effective treatment option for neurovascular, traumatic and neurodegenerative disorders. Previous work in neural stem-cell transplantation has demonstrated the ability of distinct neural cells to repair damage and to

Annual Congress on Cell Science, Stem Cell Research & Regenerative Medicine. Atlanta, USA. November 29-30, 2017

Allied Academies cordially invites all the participants across the globe to attend “Annual Congress on Cell Science, Stem Cell Research & Regenerative Medicine 2017” during November 29-30, 2017 Atlanta, USA which includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks,

In the pursuit of personalized medicine; New technologies to study the gut microbiome

Humans have a symbiotic relationship with microbes that reside in and on our bodies.  The human digestive tract contains as many as 1014 of bacterial cells, making it one of the densest and most diverse microbial communities

Image Cytometer – NucleoCounter® NC-3000™

The NucleoCounter® NC-3000™ is an advanced image cytometer utilizing fluorescence imaging to characterize cell properties. The NC-3000™ can perform high speed cell count and viability determination and includes plug-and-play analytical assays of mammalian, yeast and insect cells.

Viable stem cells can survive in horse’s ligaments up to 72 hours after death

Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are being used in today’s clinical practice to regenerate or replace the damaged tissue. Moreover, both autologous and allogenic MSCs have been shown to be effective for tissue repair after injury and disease.

The key key to open the door of iPSCs clinical therapy for patients

The discovery of iPSCs is probably one of the most astonishing accomplishments in the beginning of 21st century. This is by 4 early protein factors, the differentiated cells–such as fibroblasts, T and B cells—can return to pluripotent

Building a matrix mediated cell expansion system for high-quality cartilage regeneration

Articular cartilage is a tissue found in joints throughout the body (knees, elbows, etc.) that plays a significant role in allowing the body to maintain proper movement and engage in physical activities; it also supports the transfer

What stem cells have to do with stomach cancer

The surface of the stomach is lined by a delicate single-layered sheet of epithelial cells (termed the gastric mucosa and its glands), which represents a tight barrier to the outside world (i.e., the gastric juice and its

A novel approach to identify primitive CD34+ stem cells

Stem cells are important for living organisms for many reasons, as they are capable of renewing themselves as well as to expand to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Adult stem cells exist throughout the body after embryonic

CML – where do we stand in 2015?

The progress with CML‐treatment continues at a rapid pace. Treatment of choice is targeted therapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). Five‐year survival ranges around 91% and 10‐year survival around 84% up from 11% with Busulfan 30 years ago. More

Inhibitors of gastric acid secretion and gastric cancer

The highly acidic gastric juice is an efficient killer of swallowed microorganisms. This is an important function which is reflected in the tight regulation of gastric acidity involving both nerves and hormones (blood born messengers). The most

Overcoming aging-caused difficulties in salivary gland

Stem cells are the cells that are responsible for the maintenance of tissues and organs by replacing functional cells with a limited life-span or that are damaged beyond repair. Over the last decades stem cells have been
