Bone Marrow is the soft, sponge-like tissue in the center of most bones. It produces white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
Researchers from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology have made a novel revelation about the processes of bone loss in gum disease (periodontitis).
A finding by UC Riverside bioengineers could hasten development of lab-grown blood vessels and other tissues to replace and regenerate damaged tissues in human patients.
The mystery is being unraveled of why the control centers, or nuclei, of certain blood cancer cells have a distinctly odd shape.
The reason why the control centers, or nuclei, of certain blood cancer cells, have a peculiar structure is still a mystery.
A change in the volume of red blood cells has been documented in astronauts since the earliest space missions.
Researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center discovered that treatment resistance in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) is caused by two distinct classes of stem cells and identified possible therapeutic approaches that target these cells.
Researchers have used sound waves to turn stem cells into bone cells, in a tissue engineering advance that could one day help patients regrow bone lost to cancer or degenerative disease.
A group of researchers from UNIGE in Switzerland and Inserm in France has discovered a previously unknown process that could lead to the creation of novel medicines.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the human microbiome – the collection of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live on and within us – significantly contributes to our health.
A one-time infusion of stem cells from bone marrow improves the survival of mice with sepsis, shows a study published today in eLife.
A Johns Hopkins Medicine scientist who spent 30 years figuring out how to put chemical labels into cells to track their movement in living tissues has found that certain self-renewing stem cells have built-in tracers -; made out of sugars -; that can do the job without added chemical "labels" when injected into mouse brains.
We speak to Dr. Chao Ma, one of the speakers at SLAS 2022, about his groundbreaking 'leukemia-on-a-chip' technology and its future within therapy resistance.
Scientists have found a way to prove that biochemical signals sent from cell to cell play an important role in determining how those cells develop.
A grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation of up to 300 million euro now enables the establishment of a major international research center focused on stem cell medicine.
The human immune system works hard to maintain an individual’s health and protect against viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, and cancerous cells.
The existing methods for the regeneration of injured cartilage generate tissue that breaks down. This deterioration eventually leads to osteoarthritis—the commonly seen form of arthritis—affecting over 32.5 million grown-ups in the United States, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
A recent study carried out by the University of East Anglia and Quadram Institute shows how immune cells utilize the body’s fat stores to combat infection.
In pediatric and young adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated with tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah), DNA sequencing-based detection of residual disease between three and 12 months accurately identified all patients who would eventually relapse, while other methods were less predictive.
While dendritic cell immunoreceptor (DCIR) is known to mediate inflammation and bone metabolism, ligands that bind DCIR and the mechanisms underlying DCIR activity remain poorly understood.
Johns Hopkins Medicine scientists have used glowing chemicals and other techniques to create a 3D map of the blood vessels and self-renewing "stem" cells that line and penetrate a mouse skull.
