DEMYSTIFYING STEM CELLS
- The Regenerative Potential of Stem Cell Therapeutics in the Anti-Aging Setting. Goldman, Robert; Klatz, Ronald // Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients;Dec2005, Issue 269, p70
The article studies the regenerative potential of stem cell therapeutics in the anti-aging setting by researchers from Chicago, Illinois. Stem cell therapeutics is the leading biomedical technology in the rapidly emerging field of regenerative medicine, a medical field in which science assists...
- Stem Cell Therapy -- A Panacea for all Ills? Rajgopal, L. // Journal of Postgraduate Medicine;Jul-Sep2005, Vol. 51 Issue 3, p161
This article cites a research study focusing on stem cell therapy. It reports that a team of the South Korean scientists has enabled a paraplegic of 19 years after injecting stem cells derived from a cloned embryo into the site of spinal cord injury. It has been shown in an adult mouse with...
- The power of stem cell regeneration. // Malay Mail;5/25/2012, p3
The article describes the regenerative power of stem cell therapy, deemed the fastest and scientifically proven method to replace ageing and damaged cells.
- Stem cell therapy takes a giant leap. // New Scientist;8/23/2008, Vol. 199 Issue 2670, p5
The author reflects on the use of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) to repair damaged spinal cords, hearts, livers, bones and pancreas.
- Nuclear Transplantation, Embryonic Stem Cells, and the Potential for Cell Therapy. Hochedlinger, Konrad; Jaenisch, Rudolf // New England Journal of Medicine;7/17/2003, Vol. 349 Issue 3, p275
Discusses nuclear transplantation, embryonic stem cells, and the potential for cell therapy. Common abnormalities in cloned animals; Prezygotic and poszygotic reprogramming; Reproductive cloning versus therapeutic cloning; Limitations and alternatives.
- 'Game Changing' iPS Cells Move from Science to Marketplace. Moran, Nuala // BioWorld Today;5/5/2010, Vol. 21 Issue 86, p5
The article focuses on the value of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells in drug discovery and development. Its varied functions are discussed in terms of differentiation to scarce cell types and production of cell types that are impossible to obtain. The progress in the field of iPS cells is...
- stem cell translation and bioethics. English, Denis // Annals of Neurosciences;Apr2012, Vol. 19 Issue 2, p57
The author reflects on the bioethics associated with stem cell therapy. The author believed that the use of embryonic stem cells is ethically inconsistent and conflicts with nature and it is a flawed concept that ES cures most diseases. Moreover, he mentioned of the lack of evidences to construe...
- Embryonic Stem Cells help Patents, Not Patients. Debaets, Amy Michelle // Ethics & Medicine: An International Journal of Bioethics;Spring2006, Vol. 22 Issue 1, p64
Discusses the scientific and therapeutic differences between somatic and embryonic stem cells, based on an article by Jean Swanson in the January 3, 2006 issue of the "St. Paul Pioneer Press." Therapeutic use of nonembryonic stem cells; Financial rationale behind embryonic stem cell research.
- Stem cell biology: Towards the reality of cell therapeutics. Trounson, Alan; DeWitt, Natalie D. // Nature Cell Biology;Apr2012, Vol. 14 Issue 4, p331
The author discusses the efforts of the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to support stem cell research through state funding. He notes that CIRM had awarded a total of 1.4 billion dollar grants to 59 institutions and companies by the end of 2011. Moreover, the author cites...
