  • New Data on the Inspection of Human Cell & Tissue Products by the FDA

    A recent report charting inspectional information by the FDA for human cell/tissue therapeutic products shows a marked increase in inspection activity. The period covered is 2003-2010 and reports an increase in the number of inspections by about 250%, with an average duration of each inspection of 40-45 hours. During that period, voluntary compliance actions taken by companies as a result of inspections has increased 255% and official action taken has increased 240%. This is against a background …

  • Boy Receives New Trachea Thanks to Stem Cells

    The time when body organs become replaceable is just around the corner.  Soon enough, scientists will be able to extend the life span of a human being dozens of years through his or her stem cells. The first step has been taken already, with a 10-year-old boy receiving a revolutionary tracheal transplant in London, at the Great Ormond Street Hospital. An organ that will grow inside the boy’s body through his stem cells has substituted the windpipe, bendable tube connecting the nose, mouth …

  • New and Amazing Discoveries on the Development of Cells

    … A new door has opened for the research on stem cell treatment for type-1 diabetes, given the new understanding of how immature cells grow into beta cells.  This knowledge will also be valuable for diseases where cyst formation in the tubes produces organ failure, for example, in kidneys and liver. Every important article published in Cell requires committed and lengthy research, and this is exactly what the Lund scientists have done.  They have devoted years to studying tube formation, cell …

  • Novel Stem Cell Technology for Bone Fractures Developed

    Researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have developed a new stem cell technology to aid in the better and faster healing of complicated bone fractures. This technology, which involves the isolation of stem cells from the bone marrow, has been already used successfully in the treatment of severe fractures in seven patients at the Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem. Up to today, the standard treatment in clinical orthopedics for serious bone loss has encompassed basically two …
