Researchers from South Korea, Sweden, and the United States have collaborated on a project to restore neuron function to parts of the brain damaged by Huntington’s disease (HD) by successfully transplanting HD-induced pluripotent stem cells into animal models.
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can be genetically engineered from human somatic cells such as skin, and can be used to model numerous human diseases. They may also serve as sources of transplantable cells that can be used in novel cell therapies. In the latter case, the patient provides a sample of his or her own skin to the laboratory.

Researchers believe that they can produce new eggs in infertile women even if the ovaries are damaged or the woman has passed the usual age of conception.
The technique involves transplanting stem cells into the ovaries and could work on the one in 10 women who suffer from infertility as well as those who want children late in life.
Until recently it was assumed that a woman was born with a finite lifetime store of around two million egg-producing follicles and no more could be produced.
By puberty this number has already fallen to about 400,000, and at the menopause too few
US Doctors Group Organize to Challenge the FDA
In a bold move that is sure to shake the foundations of the United States FDA, a group of American doctors have published a set of strict clinical guidelines that will allow US doctors to treat patients with their own Adult Stem Cells.
Your Own Stem Cells Are Not […]
RBC Life Sciences Inc announced today that the Company’s stem cell supplement, Stem-Kine, has been approved for importation and sale in Taiwan. Stem-Kine is marketed in Taiwan under the name SK Plus.
“Stem cells are early stage cells, formed primarily in bone marrow that can develop into any type of cell — heart, brain, or other tissues. Stem cells circulate with the blood, congregating in diseased or damaged tissues, where they replace the injured cells with healthy new cells.
“Stem cells form the body’s internal repair and rejuvenation system. Physicians consistently report that a greater number of the body’s
