Shetty and his team took neural stem cells and implanted them into the hippocampus -- which plays an important role in making new memories and connecting them to emotions -- of an animal model, essentially enabling them to regenerate tissue.
The new culture medium offers a consistently high neural stem cell yield in a serum-free environment.
As I have said before, the more we can learn about the ways in which neural stem cells can be used to improve human health, the more potential there is to use stem cells for therapeutic purposes.
The demonstrated ability of our human neural stem cells to preserve cones is very meaningful, because it is the progressive deterioration of these specific cells that ultimately results in vision loss in AMD.
With their improved safety, these neural stem cells could one day be used for cell replacement therapy in neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease," said co-senior author Yadong Huang, MD, PhD, a senior investigator at Gladstone.
The claims cover the transplantation of neural stem cells themselves as well as neurons or glial cells derived from the stem cells; thus, for example, transplantation of stem cells or neurons derived from neural stem cells for the treatment of diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, stroke or spinal cord injury would be subject to the claims of this patent irrespective of the culture method used to grow the cells.
CHOC Children's announced today that its Research Institute has received a five-year, $3 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Grant to generate, investigate, and store neural stem cells derived from skin cells (fibroblasts) donated by children with autism.
December 1, 2016--Scientists here have caught the first glimpse of molecules shuttling along a "highway" running the length of neural stem cells crucial to the development of new neurons.
