- Transplanting cardiac embryo stem cells in sheep. // Reproductive BioMedicine Online (Reproductive Healthcare Limited;Dec2005, Vol. 11 Issue 6, p749
The article discusses research being done on the transplantation of cardiac-committed mouse embryonic stem cells to infarcted sheep myocardium. It references a study by C. MÃ©nard and colleagues published in a 2005 issue of "The Lancet" journal. The researchers stressed that the results of the...

- Transplantation: Handling complement for transplant success. Bordon, Yvonne // Nature Reviews Immunology;Jun2012, Vol. 12 Issue 6, p401
The article discusses a study entitled "Antigen-presenting cell-derived complement modulates graft-versus-host disease," by W. H. Kwan and colleagues, which shows that total-body irradiation (TBI) causes host dendritic cells (DCs) to upregulate the complement components C3, C5a, factor B and...
- Stem Cell Course in the Middle East: Science Diplomacy and International Collaborations During the Arab Spring. Sarkadi, Balazs; Schatten, Gerald // Stem Cell Reviews & Reports;Mar2012, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p87
In April 2011, an international advanced course and workshop entitled 'Frontiers in Human Pluripotent Stem Cells' and an International Congress on Fertility and Genetics () was held in Amman Jordan hosted by the Jordanian Society of Fertility and Genetics under the auspices of the International...
- Advances in Î² cell replacement and regeneration strategies for treating diabetes. Benthuysen, Jacqueline R.; Carrano, Andrea C.; Sander, Maike // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Oct2016, Vol. 126 Issue 10, p3651
In the past decade, new approaches have been explored that are aimed at restoring functional Î² cell mass as a treatment strategy for diabetes. The two most intensely pursued strategies are Î² cell replacement through conversion of other cell types and Î² cell regeneration by enhancement...
- Purified Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Blocks Diabetes Pathogenesis in NOD Mice. Beilhack, Georg F.; Scheffold, Yolanda C.; Weissman, Irving L.; Taylor, Cariel; Jerabek, Libuse; Burge, Matthew J.; Masek, Marilyn A.; Shizuru, Judith A. // Diabetes;Jan2003, Vol. 52 Issue 1, p59
Purified hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) were transplanted into NOD mice to test whether development of hyperglycemia could be prevented. Engraftment of major histocompatibility complex-mismatched HSCs was compared with bone marrow (BM) grafts. HSCs differed from BM because HSCs were more...
- Human mesenchimal stem cells transplant failed to restore vasodilator potential in vascular tissues from diabetic rats but succeeded in spontaneously hypertensive rats. Soloviev, A. I.; Ivanova, I.; Novokhatska, T.; Klymenko, K. // Proceedings of the Physiological Society;2014, p306P
An abstract of the article "Human mesenchimal stem cells transplant failed to restore vasodilator potential in vascular tissues from diabetic rats but succeeded in spontaneously hypertensive rats" by A. I. Soloviev, I. Ivanova, T. Novokhatska and K. Klymenko is presented.
- Stem cells: Diabetes reversed after transplant. // Nature;1/8/2015, Vol. 517 Issue 7533, p125
The article discusses a study published in "Cell Stem Cell" which demonstrated how targeting specific immune cells can help prevent the rejection of transplanted stem cell-based pancreatic cells in diabetic mice.
