Scientists grow working heart muscle from stem cells in major medical step forward

Researchers have taken a huge step towards regrowing organs by successfully creating functional heart tissue out of adult stem cells. The breakthrough could mean that repairs to damaged hearts could be performed with a patient’s own cells. That reduces the need to find a matching donor and also reduces chances that the body will reject […]

Australia first: cord blood research may unlock future treatments for cerebral palsy

Australia’s first clinical trial of stem cell infusion from cord blood as a possible treatment for cerebral palsy (CP) is commencing in Melbourne. The safety trial, led by the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, will recruit patients nationally and take place at The Royal Children’s Hospital. Expected to take two years, the study is being funded […]

Umbilical blood cells kill cancer quicker than adult stem cells

Immature but deadly. Immune cells in fetal blood are better at destroying leukaemia cells than adult stem cells, tests in mice suggest. The results are a surprise because foetal immune cells haven’t had the lifelong “training” that adult immune cells have had, yet they still seem to recognise and destroy abnormal cells. People with blood […]

Multiple Sclerosis stem cell treatment ‘helps patients walk again’

A new treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) has enabled some patients to walk again by “rebooting” their immune systems. As part of a clinical trial at Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital involving around 20 patients, scientists used stem cells to carry out a bone marrow transplant. The method known as an autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplant […]
