Scientists have edged one step closer to a major treatment for (and possibly cure for) type 1 diabetes. A UCSF team has claimed it’s the first to turn human stem cells into the mature, insulin-producing cells that type 1 patients don’t have. The key was to acknowledge a reality in the development of islets, or […]
Two prestigious US hospitals have concluded a prominent cardiologist whose research served as the foundation for cardiac stem cell therapy fabricated or falsified data in at least 31 published studies that should now be retracted. Piero Anversa’s research first made waves in 2001, when he published a paper in Nature suggesting that stem cells could […]
Electric vehicles have yet to take over the world due to a pair of shortcomings inherent to the technology: limited range and long refueling times. Hyundai’s hydrogen-powered 2019 Nexo FCEV addresses both issues — all while it cleans the atmosphere around you like a giant, driveable Coway Mighty. While the Kona Electric leans heavily on […]

Dozens of unlicensed clinics offering stem cell treatments for a wide variety of medical conditions have sprung up in Canada, marketing their services through direct-to-consumer online advertising, a study has found.
MULTIPLE Sclerosis is a devastating neurological disease, which comes with a host of debilitating symptoms and can ruin people’s chances at a good quality of life. A new study has confirmed the presence of a specific cell which could change the way the disease is treated.
Up to 150,000 people in Britain suffer from Crohn’s disease, a painful and chronic intestinal disorder which is thought to be caused by an abnormal immune reaction to gut bacteria. The new treatment aims to reset a patient’s immune system so it no longer sees the gut as an enemy to attack, “curing” them of […]
THOUSANDS of patients with untreatable Crohn’s disease could now be cured with an infusion of their own stem cells, experts believe. And they say the pioneering technique, which has had success in preliminary trials, could be applied to other devastating immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

MILLIONS of heart failure patients could be saved thanks to a new stem cell therapy being tested in Britain. Researchers yesterday revealed a breakthrough treatment that cuts out the need for operations by revitalising damaged tissue using cells harvested from a patient’s own blood.
