Researchers at Tsinghua University in China have developed a new drug cocktail that can convert cells into totipotent stem cells, the very seeds of life. These cells can differentiate into any cell in the body, potentially bypassing the need for sperm and eggs to grow an organism.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Stem Cells, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPS), Cells, Molecules, Ts

Stem cells that can be engineered to take on different properties continue to show huge potential in all areas of medicine, ranging from Parkinson's disease treatments to regenerative therapies for injured tendons. Scientists adapting this technology for difficult-to-treat tumors have developed a highly efficient off-the-shelf approach that showed "profound efficacy" in mouse models of aggressive
Stem cell therapies are showing huge promise in a lot of areas, but one application that has scientists particularly excited is in next-generation treatments for Parkinson's disease. A team experimenting in this area has demonstrated how implanting carefully cultivated stem cells into rats can bring about remarkable recovery from motor symptoms typical of the disease, and are now setting their si
Type 1 diabetes can be a rare but serious side effect of a cancer treatment that use what are known as immune checkpoint inhibitors. In a new study in mice, researchers in Japan have shown that administering stem cell therapy could help prevent this.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Stem Cells, Cancer, Immunotherapy, The Immune System, Osaka University, Diabetes
Bang & Olufsen has followed last year's release of its very first noise-canceling wireless earphones with another set that are dressed to impress, this time carrying improved waterproofing and an oddly familiar stem structure. The new Beoplay EX also promise a new degree of versatility, apparently enabling users to listen to music in one ear and take phone calls in the other.Continue ReadingCateg
Researchers at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory have developed a handheld robot that can help minimally trained responders to control severe internal bleeding in victims of traumatic injury, by helping them insert a needle and catheter into a major blood vessel.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Surgical robot, MIT, Injuries
