Scientists grow diseased brain cells in bulk to study Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases

Scientists grow diseased brain cells - Jan 14

Researchers who work on neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease need to access diseased human brain cells very frequently. In that process, they create diseased human brain cells from human pluripotent stem cells in the lab. However, the main problem in the procedure is, they cannot regenerate enough diseased neurons to study the diseases […]

An algorithm that makes it easier to see stem cell development

An algorithm - Jan 05

Stanford University School of Medicine researchers invented a new algorithm, Baxter Algorithm, to track adult stem cell development more accurately. The main idea was to overcome the difficulties in treating muscle related problems that eventually lead to aging. According to the research, growing stem cells in the muscle, especially on the developed synthetic matrix, try […]

Accreditation is key in securing a cord blood transplant

Accreditation is key - Jan 02

Umbilical cord blood plays a potent role in treating life-threatening ailments like sickle cell anaemia, lymphoma, leukaemia and the like. Today, over 25,000 patients round the globe have had cord blood transplants since their parents had a long-term vision that made them donate the child’s umbilical cord blood to a prominent cord blood bank. In […]

Have scientists discovered a natural way to boost muscle regeneration?

Boost muscle regeneration - Oct 18

Many athletes take painkillers regularly after intense workout sessions. The reason being, any muscle injury, inflammation, soreness, stiffness and aches can be handled with these medicines. But a new study suggests that these anti-inflammatory non-steroidal drugs often harm the muscles rather than doing any good. A Stanford Medicine study supports this view and proposes a […]
