Cancer stem cell vaccine in development shows antitumor effect
Scientists may have discovered a new paradigm for immunotherapy against cancer by priming antibodies and T cells with cancer stem cells, according to a study published in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. View News Article (2012-04-02)

Tapping into spinal cures
Stem cells which give rise to vertebrae, muscle and the spinal cord have been identified for the first time by Dr. Valerie Wilson (University of Edinburgh). "These axial stem cells could be used in the future to help replace damaged tissues after back injuries", says Dr. Wilson who will be presenting her work at the Society for Experimental Biology's Annual Main Meeting in Heriot-Watt...

OU Cancer Institute Scientists Identify New Cancer Stem Cell Marker; Developing Drug to Stop Cancer Recurrence
After years of working toward this goal, scientists at the OU Cancer Institute have found a way to isolate cancer stem cells in tumors so they can target the cells and kill them, keeping cancer from returning.  View News Article (2008-09-12)

Stem cell identity in culture may strongly depend on the cellular microenvironment
Identification, isolation and large scale culture of stem cells for potential medical applications is a major challenge in cell biology. View News Article (2007-04-25)

Xie Lab demonstrates the role of microRNA pathway
Ting Xie, Ph.D., Associate Investigator, and Zhigang Jin, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Xie Lab, have published results showing that the microRNA pathway is essential for controlling self-renewal of germline stem cells and somatic stem cells in the Drosophila ovary. View News Article (2007-02-16)

Could skin cells become brain cells? (p 172)
Results of an experimental study in this week's issue of THE LANCET highlight how adult skin cells can be made into precursor nerve cells, with potential implications for the future treatment of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease. Ethical and practical considerations limit the availability of neural stem cells derived from human embryonic tissue. A readily available source of... View News Article (2004-07-07)

New studies question the treatment of female infertility with stem cells
It has been claimed that a treatment for female infertility will be available by stem cell therapy. But a new study by Swedish researchers from the University of Gothenburg and Karolinska Institutet published in Nature Medicine questions whether new egg cells can be produced using stem cells. View News Article (2015-11-04)

Researchers advance the science behind treating patients with corneal blindness
Researchers in the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute have devised a novel way to generate transplantable corneal stem cells that may eventually benefit patients suffering from life-altering forms of blindness.  View News Article (2015-01-28)

Therapeutically useful stem cell derivatives in need of stability
Human stem cells capable of giving rise to any fetal or adult cell type are known as pluripotent stem cells. It is hoped that such cells, the most well known being human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), can be used to generate cell populations with therapeutic utility. View News Article (2012-01-25)

A link between mitochondria and tumor formation in stem cells
Researchers report on a previously unknown relationship between stem cell potency and the metabolic rate of their mitochondria -a cell's energy makers. Stem cells with more active mitochondria also have a greater capacity to differentiate and are more likely to form tumors. View News Article (2008-10-13)
