    Cleft lip and palate are among the most common congenital birth defects (CDC).  Between the fourth and ninth weeks of pregnancy, tissues from each side of the head grow toward the center and join together to make the face. A baby can be born with a cleft lip or palate if the tissues that compose […]

    Gracie has autism, a condition that affected nearly every aspect of her family’s life after she was diagnosed at 2. But a new study is offering hope for the Gregorys and families like them.   Gracie was one of 25 children who took part in the first-of-its-kind study at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. […]

    Researchers have identified a set of molecular ‘flags’ that are present on the surface of human stem cells. Stem cells are cells that have the potential to differentiate into a variety of specialised cells. By recognising the flags, researchers can now accurately track and investigate stem cells as the cells transition between different states. This […]

    Scientists working at the University of Bristol and NHS Blood and Transplant recently published their research in the journal Nature. They’ve shown that a virtually unlimited blood supply can be achieved through a process of “immortalizing” stem cells at an early stage. Previously, researchers have been able to synthesize blood by isolating a type of […]

    Lead researcher Dr. Martha Haahr, of Odense University Hospital in Denmark, and colleagues found that within 6 months of the procedure, 8 of the 21 men treated were able to engage in spontaneous sexual intercourse. The researchers recently presented their findings at EAU17 – the European Association of Urology’s annual conference – held in London […]

    A young Aussie researcher is using stem cells that emit a light signal in order to track their fate in real time once injected in the body. Richard Tan, a PhD student from the Heart Research Institute, in Sydney, has developed these so called “bioluminescent” stem cells as a non-invasive way to give scientists immediate […]

    A multiple sclerosis treatment which “resets” the immune system has been found to “freeze” progression of the disease in nearly half of patients, according to scientists. A study led by Imperial College London found that 46 per cent of patients who underwent the treatment did not suffer a worsening of their condition for five years. The […]

    Humans have about 15,000 inner ear-hair cells, each one picking up sound vibrations, converting them to electric signals and sending them to the brain for processing. Over time, loud noise, medications and old age combine to kill these cells — and their microscopic hairs called stereocilia — which leads to hearing loss. Unlike other animals, […]

    A Sydney toddler whose umbilical cord blood was stored to help treat her sister’s Type 1 diabetes has had it reinfused after showing signs of the disease herself. Lucy Hinchion, aged 20 months, on Friday became the youngest child in the world to receive her own cord blood to help prevent or delay the chronic […]

    When he was born at Mount Sinai Hospital, Jack was not breathing. Doctors whisked him away from his mother and started efforts to resuscitate him. They managed to save his life but soon had to deliver some bad news to his parents, Stephen Pankratz and Kim Kucher. Their son had Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), brain […]

    By the age of one year old, Neha started missing major growth milestones that a normal baby would achieve in infancy, and that’s when her parents discovered that there is an abnormality. Neha was diagnosed with a rare metabolic disorder called mucopolysaccharidoses VI (MPS VI). The MPS diseases are storage disorders where the patient’s body […]

    Keck Medical Center of USC today announced that a team of doctors became the first in California to inject an experimental treatment made from stem cells, AST-OPC1, into the damaged cervical spine of a recently paralyzed 21-year-old man as part of a multi-center clinical trial. On March 6, just shy of his 21st birthday, Kristopher […]
