Study mice were able to produce their own insulin following human stem cell transplant By Daily Mail Reporters PUBLISHED: 11:33 EST, 27 June 2012 | UPDATED: 11:34 EST, 27 June 2012 Scientists have successfully reversed diabetes in mice using stem cells, paving the way for a breakthrough treatment for the illness. The research is the first to show that human stem cell transplants can successfully restore insulin production and reverse diabetes in mice. Crucially, the team re-created the ‘feedback loop’ that enables insulin levels to automatically rise or fall based on blood glucose levels
News Article date: February 27, 2012 By Stacy Simon Someone being treated for cancer often needs a lot of help at home, too.

Data indicate that haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) results in better long term survival than conventional treatment for patients with poor prognosis early diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis. The ASTIS (Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation International Scleroderma) trial enrolled more than 150 patients between 2001 and 2009, and randomised patients to the HSCT arm or to intravenous pulse cyclophosphamide treatment

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –Amgen (AMGN) today announced updated results from a Phase 2 study that showed treatment with blinatumomab (AMG 103) helped achieve a high-rate of complete response (CR) in 72 percent of adult patients with relapsed or refractory B-precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated in the study. Blinatumomab is the first of a new class of agents called bi-specific T cell engagers (BiTE) antibodies, designed to harness the body’s cell-destroying T cells to kill cancer cells. Blinatumomab targets cells expressing CD19, a protein found on the surface of B-cell derived leukemias and lymphomas, such as ALL.

London, Apr 19 : Researchers including one of Indian origin have declared a research breakthrough in mice that shows promise to restore hearts damaged by heart attacks-by converting scar-forming cardiac cells into beating heart muscle. Gladstone Institutes scientists previously transformed such cells into cardiac muscle-like cells in petri dishes. But Gladstone postdoctoral scholar Li Qian, PhD, along with researchers in the laboratory of Deepak Srivastava, MD, has now accomplished this transformation in living animals-and with even greater success.
