Michael D. West 2018 Presentation at The World Stem Cell Summit on “Stem Cell Innovations That Will Change the World” Michael D. West, Ph.D., CEO of AgeX Therapeutics, discusses the medical regeneration revolution by looking back at how advances in …

antiagingLongeveron developing stem cell treatments for Frailty, Alzheimers and other aging diseases

Longeveron is a life sciences company developing biological solutions for aging and aging-associated diseases through the use of Allogeneic Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells, harvested and grown at our facility in Miami, Florida, from adult-donor bone marrow. Longeveron is a privately …

medicinePlatelet coated stem cells Could Offer Targeted Heart Repair

Although cardiac stem cell therapy is a promising treatment for heart attack patients, directing the cells to the site of an injury – and getting them to stay there – remains challenging. In a new pilot study using an animal …

malariaHuman skeletal muscle grown from stem cells

Biomedical engineers have grown the first functioning human skeletal muscle from induced pluripotent stem cells. The advance builds on work published in 2015 when researchers at Duke University grew the first functioning human muscle tissue from cells obtained from muscle …

futureUS Army improving the regrowth of bone, muscle and skin

US Army researchers are using fillers to bridge the gap in damaged bones, hoping to figuratively bridge the gap between current regenerative techniques and the ideal: people regrowing lost limbs. Stephanie Shiels with the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research, …

medicineEngineered Stem Cells repaired spinal cords in 5 out of 12 Rats

Engineered human stem cells have been used to enable paraplegic rats to walk independently and regain sensory perception. The implanted rats had some healing in their spinal cords. Led by Dr. Shulamit Levenberg, of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, the …

futureTissue engineering, replacement organs and regenerative medicine are getting friendlier regulations

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is rolling out a new “regulatory framework” aimed at encouraging and speeding legitimate development of regenerative therapies. The FDA intends to promote the “least burdensome” rules for companies big and small that are seeking …

genetic engineeringRegeneration of the entire human skin using transgenic stem cells

Epidermolysis bullosais is rare, but the charity DEBRA, which campaigns for EB patients, estimates half a million people are affected around the world. There are different forms of epidermolysis bullosa, including simplex, dystrophic and, as in this case, junctional. Each …

brainBreakthrough Gel for growing large quantities of neural stem cells

There is a solution to the dual challenges of growing and preserving neural stem cells in a state where they are still able to mature into many different cell types. The first challenge is that growing stem cells in quantity …
