    Dennis Matko was headed for a knee replacement when he discovered a new therapy that would instead inject his own stem cells and plasma into the joint to help prevent degradation. The 69-year-old Clintonville resident said he had been pretty active in his 50s, leading to problems with the right knee. He eventually had his meniscus removed. He had been through physical therapy, cortisone shots and gel injections, but the pain persisted.

    Whether using embryonic or adult stem cells, coercing these master cells to convert to the desired target cell and reproduce flawlessly is difficult. Now an international team of researchers has a two-part system that can convert the cells to the targets and then remove the remnants of that conversion, leaving only the desired DNA behind to duplicate.

  • Chip captures individual cells in minuscule gels

    Source: Science Daily

    Researchers have developed a chip that can capture and hold individual cells in the exact center of a minuscule hydrogel droplet. Their novel method keeps cells alive for multiple weeks, which makes it easier to study them. This makes it possible to, for example, test the action of new drugs and improve stem cell therapies with unparalleled control.
