Newswise: Creatine powers T cells’ fight against cancer

Article ID: 721010

Creatine powers T cells’ fight against cancer

UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research

The study, conducted in mice, is the first to show that creatine uptake is critical to the anti-tumor activities of killer T cells, the foot soldiers of the immune system.

New Genetic Link Found for Some Forms of SIDS

UW Medicine

A genetic link has now been found for some instances of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS. The new UW Medicine research study is the first such to make an explainable link.

Antibody eradicates leukemia stem cells

UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research

Now, in experiments in mice as well as isolated human cancer cells, UCLA researchers have discovered a way to eliminate the CML stem cells. Their approach uses an antibody to block a protein that the stem cells rely on to grow. The advance, described in a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, might eventually help treat not only chronic myelogenous leukemia but other cancers as well.

Mounting Brain Organoid Research Reignites Ethical Debate

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

As research involving the transplantation of human “mini-brains”—known as brain organoids—into animals to study disease continues to expand, so do the ethical debates around the practice. A new paper published in Cell Stem Cell by researchers from Penn Medicine and the Department of Veterans Affairs sought to clarify the abilities of brain organoids and suggests an ethical framework that better defines and contextualizes these organoids and establishes thresholds for their use.

Newswise: First Patient Enrolled in Novel Stem Cell Trial for Heart Failure Treatment

Article ID: 719952

First Patient Enrolled in Novel Stem Cell Trial for Heart Failure Treatment

MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute and the Cleveland Clinic Heart and Vascular Institute

MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute has enrolled its first patient to a clinical trial to determine whether cardiac stem cells reduce inflammation enough to improve heart function in patients with heart failure severe enough to require a left ventricular assist device, or LVAD.

Tapeworms need to keep their head to regenerate

Morgridge Institute for Research

Scientists show that the location of stem cells is essential in determining tapeworms’ ability to regenerate.

Newswise: Engineered killer T cells could provide long-lasting immunity against cancer

Article ID: 719485

Engineered killer T cells could provide long-lasting immunity against cancer

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

In experiments with mice, UCLA researchers have shown they can harness the power of iNKT cells to attack tumor cells and treat cancer. The new method, described in the journal Cell Stem Cell, suppressed the growth of multiple types of human tumors that had been transplanted into the animals.

Newswise: Stem Cells With ‘Dual Identity’ Linked to Loss of Smell From Sinus Inflammation

Article ID: 719202

Stem Cells With ‘Dual Identity’ Linked to Loss of Smell From Sinus Inflammation

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In experiments with mice and human tissue samples, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report evidence that neuronal stem cells in the part of the nose responsible for the sense of smell transform themselves to perpetuate the long-term inflammation in chronic sinusitis.
