medicinePig-Monkey Hybrids Created to Eventually Generate Human Organs in Pigs

Researchers injected D-ESCs (embryonic stem cells) into porcine blastocysts (pig pre-embyros) to obtain neonatal interspecies chimeras. The D-ESCs differentiated into all three germ layers in the pig fetuses, consistent with a previous study reporting human/pig chimeras. The human/pig fetuses survived …

gene therapyStem Cell Therapies are Closer to Not Needing Anti-Rejection Drugs

Universal stem cells that would not need anti-rejection drugs would be transformative for regenerative medicine. New research by AgeX and Juvenescence brings us much closer to Universal stem cells. They are getting success modifying the immune signaling molecule that protects …

Aubrey de Grey is getting more bullish about his timeframes for robust human rejuvenation and longevity escape velocity. He now thinks it is only 18 years away and not 25 years anymore. There is fastly progressing science and there is …

crisprStem Cells That Will Not Be Rejected Will Bring Mass Produced Stem Cell Treatments

CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing system has made pluripotent stem cells that are functionally “invisible” to the immune system which will prevent rejection of stem cell transplants. Universal stem cells can be produced that will work for everyone and there will not be …

Chicken grown from cells is already on the menu in some restaurants and cell produced burgers are coming by 2021. Improved tasting plant protein burgers are also available. Impossible burger is a wheat protein burger that uses a plant based …

antiaging80 year old billionaires are injecting Placental stem cells to boost lifespan and health

Injecting Placental stem cells into old mice at the end of their lives can boost longevity by 50%. It extends the life of 2-year-old mice to three years. Peter Diamandis states that he personally knows billionaires who are over the …

japanStem cell treatment of Parkinson’s disease via half inch holes in the skull

Kyoto University Hospital will start clinical trials for Parkinson’s disease that transplants dopaminergic progenitors generated from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. About 5 million iPS cell-derived dopaminergic progenitors will be transplanted by stereotaxic brain surgery into the left and right …

3dSynthetic meat that is more like real free range meat using 4 types of cells

Aleph Farms is producing clean meat that resembles free range meat using a 3D textured process. Aleph Farm’s technology overcomes a critical clean meat issue – similarity to real meat. Our clean meat is closer to free range meat thanks …
