In this article, Dr Jaime Shamonki, Generate Life Science’s CMO, discusses how newborn stem cells derived from umbilical cord tissue could make mesenchymal stem cells less expensive and variable to produce.
The implanted biomaterial drug delivery system releases methylprednisolone and reduces inflammation, promoting central nervous system (CNS) repair.
In this article Pramod Kumar, a Senior Research Analyst (Healthcare) at P&S Intelligence, explores how single-cell analysis techniques are used for both pharmaceutical R&D and clinical, diagnostic applications.
The field of regenerative medicine – an area promising a revolution in 21st century healthcare – has been enabled by rapid scientific advancements in recent years. There is a growing need for a new generation of therapeutic products, made more severe by the global shortages of organs available for transplantations.…
In a study of 94 patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease, rotigotine improved frontal lobe executive function and enabled patients to independently perform daily activities.
Drug Target Review rounds up some of the latest developments in materials developed for medical applications, including hydrogels, implants and more.
Experiments testing the artificial cardiac patch in pigs and rats showed the patch can reduce scarring and improve cardiac function after a heart attack.
A study showed that bone stem cells rearrange degrading microporous annealed particle (MAP) hydrogels, promoting their growth.
Scientists in Switzerland have demonstrated that combining a brain-computer interface (BCI) with functional electrical stimulation (FES) can help stroke victims recover greater use of their paralysed limbs – even years after the stroke.
Replacement neurons, blood vessels fill in stroke cavity; gel provides scaffolding...
The concept of developing a bioink that can be used for all cell types and all printing techniques is at best unrealistic and at worst impossible. What is much more achievable and also more desirable is a modifiable, modular system...
Researchers have found that an NAD+ precursor helped mice with features of Alzheimer’s disease perform better on learning and memory tests...
