Image: Biomaterials were designed to specifically accommodate cardiac, neuronal, and stem cells. The biomaterials temporarily replace the native ECM, providing support and instructive cues to the developing tissues. Post implantation the biomaterial degrades leaving the engineered tissue to stand on its own (Photo courtesy of Tel Aviv University).

MRI Technology Enables Noninvasive Monitoring of Emergent Cell Therapies

Cellular therapeutics, the application of using intact cells to treat and cure disease, is an important potential new therapeutic application, but it is hampered by the inability of clinicians and scientists to effectively monitor the destination, movements, and perseverance of these cells in patients without having to use invasive procedures, such as tissue sampling.   More...

Image: Aggressor cells, which have the potential to cause autoimmunity, are targeted by treatment, causing conversion of these cells to protector cells. Gene expression changes gradually at each stage of treatment, as illustrated by the color changes in this series of heat maps (Photo courtesy of the University of Bristol/Dr. Bronwen Burton).

“Switch Off Button” Discovered in Autoimmune Disorders

Scientists have made an important advance in the fight against debilitating autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis by demonstrating how to stop cells destroy healthy body tissue. Instead of the body’s immune system destroying its own tissue by mistake, researchers have discovered how cells can be transformed from being aggressive to actually protecting against disease.  More...
