|Induced pluripotent stem cells could serve as cancer vaccine|

Induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPS cells, are a keystone of regenerative medicine. Outside the body, they can be coaxed to become many different types of cells and tissues that can help repair damage due to trauma or disease. Now, a study in mice suggests another use for iPS cells: training the immune system to attack or even prevent tumors.
|Clues to Aging Found in Fruit Flies’ Stem Cells|

Reproductive stem cells of male fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) use a genetic trick to stay perpetually young across generations, according to new research published in the journal eLife. Certain sections of the fruit fly genome get shorter with age. But remarkably, some reproductive cells can repair the shrinkage. This genomic shrinkage may underlie aspects of [...]

Injections of killed stem cells, designed to help the immune system recognise cancers, have been found to protect mice from developing tumours

The company says it's found a way around the opposition to stem cell research by using postpartum placentas instead of embryos.

Scientists have shown that altering the structure of sugar chains on the surface of stem cells could help promote bone growth in the body.
|In effort to treat rare blinding disease, researchers turn stem cells into blood vessels|

People with a mutated ATF6 gene have a malformed or missing fovea, the eye region responsible for detailed vision. From birth, vision is severely limited, and there is no cure. Researchers were the first to link ATF6 to this type of vision impairment. In a new study, the team discovered that a chemical that activates ATF6 converts patient stem cells into blood vessels.

In fruit flies, repeating genetic elements shrink with age, but then expand in future generations, a resurgence that may help explain how some cells stay immortal.
|Efficient technique discovered for isolating embryonic stem cells in cows|

Scientists have developed a highly efficient method of isolating embryonic stem cells in cows. Producing embryonic stem cells from large livestock species like cattle is important for genetic testing, genome engineering, and studying human disease.
|Researchers Create Functioning Human Kidney Tissue Using Stem Cells|

An international research team led by University of Manchester scientists has generated human kidney tissue within a living organism which is able to produce urine. The results appear in the journal Stem Cell Reports. “Worldwide, two million people are being treated with dialysis or transplantation for kidney failure, and sadly another two million die each [...]
