Australian treated with new cell-based therapy

In a rare surgery, a 35-year-old Australian woman with a spinal injury for 14 long years regained her sensory ability after undergoing a new cell-based therapy at a hospital here, doctors said on Monday. The...

Critical Mass of Stem Cells Sets Off Embryonic Development in the Lab

When stem cells are propagated in the laboratory, they typically differentiate into one or another specialized cell type, usually forming cell masses that show little organization or spatial coherence. Exceptions include the emergence, in...

Stem cells from human embryos prove safe, improve vision -study

(Reuters) - The longest-running trial of stem cells derived from a human embryo found that the cells caused patients none of the problems scientists feared, such as forming tumors, and reversed partial blindness in...

Stem cell trial for spinal cord injuries cleared by FDA

An experimental treatment using controversial embryonic stem cells to fix severe spinal cord injuries has new life under a new company. Asterias Biotherapeutics Inc. of Menlo Park received Food and Drug Administration clearance Wednesday to...

Stem Cell Trials to Treat Spinal Cord Injuries

While human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) were originally created in 1998, it wasn’t until 2009 — over a decade later — that they were approved by the FDA for use in a clinical trial...

Stem Cell Agency Invests $32 Million Toward Therapies For Spinal Cord Injury and HIV/AIDS

San Diego, CA – A promising treatment for patients with spinal cord injuries and a therapy aimed at helping HIV patients create an AIDS-resistant blood system were approved today by the state’s stem cell...
