Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Recent advances in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) therapeutics include novel medical, surgical, and endoscopic treatments. Among these, stem cell therapy is still in its infancy, although multiple s...

Characterization of menstrual stem cells: angiogenic effect, migration and hematopoietic stem cell support in comparison with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells.

Stem cells isolated from menstrual fluid (MenSCs) exhibit mesenchymal stem cell (MSCs)-like properties including multi-lineage differentiation capacity. Besides, menstrual fluid has important advantag...

Bringing Blood Stem Cell Phenotype, Genotype, and Function Closer Together.

Imperfect purity, subtypes, and retrospective functional assays compromise efforts to define the molecular identity of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Wilson et al. ...

Enlisting hESCs to Interrogate Genetic Variants Associated with Neuropsychiatric Disorders.

Connecting rare genetic variants to neuropsychiatric disease mechanisms remains a significant challenge. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Pak et al. (2015) combine gene targeting and stem cell techno...

Splenectomy enhances the therapeutic effect of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cell infusion on liver cirrhosis rats.

Clinical studies suggest that splenectomy improves liver function in liver cirrhotic patients, but the influence of splenectomy on stem cell transplantation is poorly understood. This study investigat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods of implanting a CELL NUCLEUS from a donor cell into an enucleated acceptor cell. Often the nucleus of a somatic cell is transferred into a recipient OVUM or stem cell (STEM CELLS) with the nucleus removed. This technology may provide means to generate autologous diploid pluripotent cell for therapeutic cloning, and a model for studying NUCLEAR REPROGRAMMING in embryonic stem cells. Nuclear transfer was first accomplished with frog eggs (RANA PIPIENS) and reported in 1952.

The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.

The malignant stem cells of TERATOCARCINOMAS, which resemble pluripotent stem cells of the BLASTOCYST INNER CELL MASS. The EC cells can be grown in vitro, and experimentally induced to differentiate. They are used as a model system for studying early embryonic cell differentiation.

Experimentation on STEM CELLS and on the use of stem cells.

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.

Gene Therapy
Gene therapy is the use of DNA as a pharmaceutical agent to treat disease. It derives its name from the idea that DNA can be used to supplement or alter genes within an individual's cells as a therapy to treat disease. The most common form of gene th...
