Cancer Stem Cells

Abstract Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) are a small subpopulation of cells within tumors with capabilities of self-renewal, differentiation, and tumorigenicity when transplanted into an animal host. A number of cell surface markers such as CD44, CD24, and CD133 are often used to identify and enrich CSCs

Japan univ. uses iPS cells to treat spinal cord injury for 1st time – Kyodo News Plus

Keio University in Tokyo said Friday it has started the world's first clinical test using induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPS cells, to treat patients with spinal cord injuries. In the study commenced in December, the university will eventually transplant cells derived from iPS cells to four patients who between two to four weeks earlier lost motor and sensory function after sustaining injuries when playing sport or in traffic accidents

Electrophysiological measures from human iPSC-derived neurons are associated with schizophrenia clinical status and predict individual cognitive…

Significance Schizophrenia (SCZ) is a complex, highly heritable, neurodevelopmental disorder with marked clinical heterogeneity and no clear pathological mechanism or cellular pathology. The polygenic nature of the disorder has hindered our ability to model the disorder in the laboratory. Prior studies of cortical neurons differentiated from SCZ patient and control hiPSCs have identified interesting differences but their relevance to clinical illness in adults remains unclear.

Spinal cord injuries: how could stem cells help …

Clinical trials using neural stem cells Neural stem cells (mouse) Allogeneic (single donor) neural stem cells are being investigated for their potential in treating spinal cord injuries. There are several clinical trials examining human neural stem cells in spinal cord injuries (see clinicaltrials.gov). These trials inject neural stem cells directly into the spinal cord with the hope that the cells help re-establish some of the connections between neurons and create the necessary cells to support both the old and new neurons
