    The ENDURE trial is a first-of-its-kind study, Sanford said. Adults with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis in the wrist, knee, ankle, shoulder or hip are eligible to participate in the clinical trial. The study is regulated through the Food and Drug Administration, and the cells are tested for quality and safety before injection, Sanford said.

    At long last, there seems to be real hope in rebuilding damaged articular cartilage. Researchers from the University of Southampton recently discovered a new method to generate cartilage tissue from stem cells. Articular cartilage covers the ends of bones and acts as a shock absorber in the joints.

  • Researchers identify core genetic networks driving human embryonic stem cell behavior

    Source: Science Daily

    At the earliest stages of human embryonic development, a small collection of cells known as human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) orchestrates growth and differentiation, eventually giving rise to highly specialized human tissues. As pluripotent cells -- progenitors of every type of cell type in the body -- hESCs are of central interest to developmental and regenerative biologists. Many genes driving hESC functioning have previously been identified, but powerful tools that shed light on the interrelated activities of these genes have only emerged more recently. Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School used genome-wide genetic screening to both over-express and inactivate ("knock out") tens of thousands of genes in hESCs. They uncovered key networks that simultaneously control pluripotency and readiness for cell death (apoptosis), helping to ensure optimal conditions for embryonic development. The study's findings, published in Genes and Development, offer new insights into cancer genetics and a novel approach for regenerative medicine research.

  • Stem Cells Used to Treat Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head

    Collapsed femoral heads caused by osteonecrosis—otherwise known as avascular necrosis— unfortunately represent the root cause for approximately 10% of all hip replacements nationwide. Daniel Wiznia, MD, is utilizing a stem cell treatment at Yale School of Medicine and integrating new techniques along with 3D imaging technology as part of a joint-preservation procedure.

  • In embryonic stem cells, genes link pluripotency and ease of self-destruction

    Source: GEN

    Gene networks in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) have been found to serve two purposes at once. They maintain pluripotency, and they keep apoptosis, or programmed cell death, on a hair trigger. This discovery, from a study led by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School (HMS), suggests that faulty embryonic stem cells have a built-in mechanism to ensure that they are destroyed before they can compromise the functioning of future cells and tissues.
