Stem cells successfully treat diabetes associated with cancer therapy

May 10, 2022

Cancer immunotherapies employ the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors which may include unwanted side effects such as type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease characterised by insufficient insulin secretion – strategies for preventing or curing type 1 diabetes are still lacking. Researchers from Osaka University in Japan have found using stem cells […]

Silk composite scaffold helps with fast and effective tendon regeneration

May 5, 2022

Complete healing of a damaged tendon is almost impossible, and the tendon in question can never return to the function and flexibility it once had. Researchers at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI) in California, US, have shown how silk scaffolds loaded with stem cells can regenerate tendons faster and more effectively, with less […]
