Stem Cell and 3D Printing Generate Viable Tissue

A team of Swedish cell biologists combined three-dimensional (3D) bio-printing with advanced stem cell technology to create viable cultures of cartilage tissue that had cellular and mechanical properties similar to patients’ natural cartilage. More...

Modified Stem Cells Used to Correct Arthritis Inflammation

Researchers have used CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology to create mouse stem cells able to infiltrate the joints, form cartilage tissue, and correct the autoimmune defects that are responsible for arthritis. More...

Gene Editing Restores Vision in Mouse RP Models

The CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing tool was used to reprogram defective optical rod photoreceptor cells and transform them into functioning cone photoreceptors, which restored impaired vision in two mouse models of retinitis pigmentosa. More...

Miniaturized Gene Editing for Treatment of Macular Regeneration

A viral vector was used to insert a very small CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing tool into mouse muscle cells or retinal pigment epithelium cells, where it induced mutations that partially cured laser damage that mimicked human chronic age-related macular degeneration. More...

Link Between Aging and Fibrotic Pulmonary Disease Discovered

A study analyzing transcriptome biomarker data has shown evidence linking cellular senescence with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), suggesting that this fatal lung disease maybe involve a form of accelerated aging. More...

Novel Culture Method for Activation of Cancer-Fighting T-Cells

A novel in vitro culture method enables disease fighting immune T-cells to overcome cancer's immunosuppressive effect in order to recognize and attack tumor cells upon being returned to the body. More...

Reprogrammed Liver Cells Replace Nonfunctional Pancreatic Cells in Mouse Model

A team of cell biologists has developed a method for transforming liver cells into functioning, insulin-producing pancreatic cells and demonstrated its potential by treating diabetes in a mouse model. More...
