NY to Pay for Eggs for Research

New York has become the first and only state to opt to pay women for eggs donated for human embryonic stem cell research. The Empire State Stem Cell Board (ESSCB), which oversees New York's $600 million stem cell research program that was launched last year, came to the decision last week (June 11) following "extensive deliberation" from its ethics committee.

Stem Cells Used To Reverse Paralysis In Animals

A new study has found that transplantation of stem cells from the lining of the spinal cord, called ependymal stem cells, reverses paralysis associated with spinal cord injuries in laboratory tests. The findings show that the population of these cells after spinal cord injury was many times greater than comparable cells from healthy animal subjects. The results open a new window on spinal cord regenerative strategies.

Adult Stem Cells Show Wider Potential Than Previously Thought

Chemists are developing new insights and techniques in an effort to expand the therapeutic potential of stem cells, which includes possible treatments for Parkinson's disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury and other devastating conditions.

Embryonic stem cells are the most versatile stem cells, capable of being transformed into any other cell type, depending on their desired therapeutic use.

The Healing Power of Stem Cells

Someone is finally starting to see the potential of stem cells derived from placenta (afterbirth). Rita Alexander has been witnessing the healing power of these stem cells on more than 2,000 patients who have sought treatment at a clinic just over the border in Mexico during the past 17 years. She has personally received several treatments that have been effective in relieving the rheumatoid arthritis that nearly crippled her. We’ve been writing about this for nearly a year.

India Ready for Profits from Stem Cell Research

India is not far behind the US in practical use of stem cells for treatment and technology. The cost for conducting research and clinical trials is less expensive in India than in the US.

Not one to miss a dollar, pharmaceutical companies are geared up and ready to develop new drugs and make a profit from embryonic stem cell research. Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) holds patent rights for development of new drug therapies using human embryonic stem cells. Pfizer has already signed an agreement with WARF hoping to determine how new medicines may be able to improve the way stem cells regenerate damaged tissues.

Stem Cell Transplant Study Shows Promise For Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath protecting nerve cells. It affects 2.5 million people globally and can cause mild illness in some people and permanent disability in others. U.S. researchers have reversed multiple sclerosis symptoms in early stage patients by using bone marrow stem cell transplants to reset the immune system.
