iPSC-grown human livers successfully transplanted into rats
Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh have successful grown miniature, mature livers from human tissue cells, which were also then successfully transplanted to rats. After the transplants, these livers have survived in their hosts for 4 days. Results of this research was recently published in Cell Reports. Read more
Stem cells as a safe, alternative treatment of androgenetic alopecia
On May 18th, STEM CELLS Translational Medicine has published a new study which showed how a solution that contains growth factors, extracted from adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs) is an effective and viable alternative to currently approved ways to combat androgenetic alopecia.

Stem cells may delay their death to help with injuries
Stem cells are already known for the ability to differentiate into various other cells in the body. Now we know that they can also delay their death, as shown by a new study. Read more
Stem cells treatment of COVID-19 complications proven effective
Scientists from Sweden have discovered lung-specific mesenchymal stem cells that could be used for treatment of treatment of severe respiratory problems associated with COVID-19, such as lung inflammation and fibrosis. Read more
Stem cells as an effective tool to repair heart tissue after heart attacks
Researchers from Mayo Clinic have discovered stem cell-activated mechanisms, that restore heart tissue after a heart attack. This discovery provides an opportunity to look closer at underlying mechanisms of tissue repair by stem cells. Read more
Use of mesenchymal stem cells for treatment of novel coronavirus
The pandemic of 2019 novel coronavirus has prompted researchers around the world to closely study how coronaviruses operate, in order to find ways to counter potential lasting damage from the infection. While doctors around the world are searching for effective antiviral protocols against SARS-CoV-2, several groups of Chinese researchers decided to try a different path. Read more
Nine months with no diabetes symptoms. For now, only in mice.
Diabetes is a disorder, characterized by problems with production and/or processing of insulin. One of the new approaches to treatment of type I diabetes currently considered promising involves stem cells and their conversion into beta cells – cells which are tasked with secretion of insulin.

A safer location for stem cell injections to treat spinal injuries
Stem cells hold a considerable potential for managing and treatment of spinal injuries. However, their delivery to injury site is usually quite problematic, as current ways of stem cell delivery may lead to unwanted consequences, including bleeding and inflammation around the area of the injection.

New source of stem cells may help with reducing the need in kidney
Transplants are the last resort for people with kidney problems, but donors are often hard to find, and the procedure is quite invasive. Stem cells are a potential solution, however, additional manipulations for a patient in need of urgent care may pose extra challenges and are often inadvisable. However, researchers may have found a way to retrieve kidney stem cells. Read more
New stem cell-based diabetes treatment will be unique to each patient
Scientists from Singapore have high hopes for stem cells in the treatment of all types of diabetes. However, more research is needed to control their differentiation and insulin production. Read more
