Two to Tango: Dialog between Immunity and Stem Cells in Health and Disease.

Stem cells regenerate tissues in homeostasis and under stress. By taking cues from their microenvironment or "niche," they smoothly transition between these states. Immune cells have surfaced as promi...

DNA repair fidelity in stem cell maintenance, health, and disease.

Stem cells are a sub population of cell types that form the foundation of our body, and have the potential to replicate, replenish and repair limitlessly to maintain the tissue and organ homeostasis. ...

Derivation and characterization of putative craniofacial mesenchymal progenitor cells from human induced pluripotent stem cells.

The introduction and widespread adoption of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology has opened new avenues for craniofacial regenerative medicine. Neural crest cells (NCCs) are the precursor p...

From embryonic stem cells to induced pluripotent stem cells - ready for clinical therapy?

Embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells have increasingly important roles in many different fields of research and medicine. Major areas of impact include improved in vitro disease mod...

Who Will Win: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Versus Embryonic Stem Cells for β Cell Replacement and Diabetes Disease Modeling?

Ever since the reprogramming of human fibroblasts to induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), scientists have been trying to determine if hiPSCs can give rise to progeny akin to native terminally diff...

Safety and Tolerability Study of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cell Infusion in Adults With Cystic Fibrosis

This study is being done to test if it is safe to give stem cells to adult patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). The kind of stem cells we are studying are called allogeneic human mesenchyma...

Computer Guided Contouring of Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia Involving Zygoma

This study will be conducted on patients with monostotic unilateral craniofacial fibrous dysplasia affecting zone I (fronto-orbital, zygomatic, and upper maxillary regions). Computer guide...

Effectiveness of Stem Cell Treatment for Adults With Ischemic Cardiomyopathy (The FOCUS Study)

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a common disorder that can lead to heart failure. Not all people with CAD are eligible for today's standard treatments. One new treatment approach uses ste...

Parkinsonian Brain Repair Using Human Stem Cells

Implantation of Celavie human stem cells (OK99) is intended to address the underlying pathology of the disease by replacing damaged/destroyed cells of the brain, and/or stimulating the pat...

Fat Grafts With Adipose-derived Regenerative Cells for Soft Tissue Reconstruction in Children

Although first reports of the clinical use of adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRC) suggest that this approach may be feasible and effective for soft tissue augmentation, there is a la...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function; examples are MYOBLASTS; MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS; and skin stem cells. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from:

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It seeks to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health through research, research training, and the dissemination of health information by conducting and supporting basic and clinical research. It was established in 1948 as the National Institute of Dental Research and re-named in 1998 as the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Single cells that have the potential to form an entire organism. They have the capacity to specialize into extraembryonic membranes and tissues, the embryo, and all postembryonic tissues and organs. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from:

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.

Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.
