Bone Marrow is the soft, sponge-like tissue in the center of most bones. It produces white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
According to a recent study conducted by scientists at Emory University in Atlanta, the administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics in mice with malignant melanoma, an aggressive type of skin cancer, expedited their metastatic bone growth.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine claim to have discovered significant molecular variations between cancer cells that adhere to an initial tumor and those that spread out to develop distant tumors while researching the fatal form of breast cancer known as triple negative.
Researchers have developed a unique 3D printed system for harvesting stem cells from bioreactors, offering the potential for high quality, wide-scale production of stem cells in Australia at a lower cost.
Ophthalmologists and researchers have been looking into mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with regenerative and differentiation capacities as a potential therapy option for corneal disorders.
Hypomethylating agents (HMA) are currently used as a first-line treatment for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) - a group of disorders where there is insufficient production of healthy mature blood cells in the bone marrow - and increasingly in other diseases, but their mechanism of action remains unclear.
Small interfering RNAs, or siRNAs, have the potential to cure tumors by targeting knocking down oncogenes that drive tumor development while avoiding the damage associated with chemotherapy.
Glioblastomas (GBMs) are cancerous tumors of the brain and spinal cord that are incredibly aggressive.
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.
