Researchers led by James L. Funderburgh (University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA) recently sought to understand the mechanisms by which corneal stromal stem cells enhance corneal wounding by assessing extracellular vesicles. In their new STEM CELLS Translational Medicine article, Shojaati et al. report that the delivery of miRNA to ocular tissues by extracellular vesicles leads to corneal regeneration. The authors hope that their findings will lead to the development of a rapid and inexpensive means of treating corneal blindness for millions of individuals who have no further options for treatment.

Review of “Bioconjugated Carbon Dots for Delivery of siTnfα to Enhance Chondrogenesis of Mesenchymal Stem Cells by Suppression of Inflammation” from STEM CELLS Translational Medicine by Stuart P. Atkinson 

The chronic inflammation associated with cartilage injury can dampen the effectiveness of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy by impairing their chondrogenic potential. As studies have implicated the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor‐α (TNFα) in this process [1, 2], researchers from the laboratory of Maolin He, Jinmin Zhao, and Li Zheng (Guangxi Medical University, Nanning, China) sought to explore whether silencing TNFα may facilitate MSC-based therapy of cartilage injury.

OMAHA, NB (US), July 2019 — The capacity of the human central nervous system to regenerate after injury or illness is limited, and the resulting functional impairments carry a vast societal and personal burden. In glaucoma, degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) — the axons of which form the optic nerve connecting the retina to the brain — leads to permanent blindness. There is currently no effective treatment for RGC degeneration.
Now, University of Nebraska Medical Center researcher Iqbal Ahmad, Ph.D., and colleagues show that human RGCs can be regenerated in an in vitro setting helped by lessons learned in rodent models. The discovery is detailed in Development.

13:39 FightAging.OrgInvestigating the Molecular Triggers for Heart Regeneration Following Injury

Zebrafish are a highly regenerative species, capable of completely regrowing lost heart tissue. This is not the case in mammals, where the heart regenerates very poorly, with injury leading to scar tissue and loss of function. Thus researchers are exploring the mechanisms of regeneration in zebrafish and other highly regenerative species, such as salamanders, in search of important differences that might become the basis for regenerative therapies. The research here is an example of this sort of work. In any case where trigger mechanisms for regeneration are better mapped, there is the possibility that regeneration might be enhanced via intervention at one of the triggers. Heart muscle cells called cardiomyocytes hold on to the capacity to reprogram themselves and alter their fate in response to […]

CHICAGO, IL (US), June 2019 — Engineered tissues and organs have been grown with various degrees of success in labs for many years. Many of them have used a scaffolding approach where cells are seeded onto biodegradable supportive structures that provide the underlying architecture of the organ or tissue desired.
But scaffolds can be problematic — ultimately, they should degrade and disappear, but timing that decomposition to coincide with the maturation of the organ is tricky, and sometimes degradation byproducts can be toxic. Scaffolds also can interfere with the development of cell-to-cell connections, which are important for the formation of functional tissues.
Now, a research team led by Eben Alsberg, Ph.D., professor of bioengineering and orthopedics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, has developed a process that enables 3D printing of biological tissues without scaffolds

That microRNA-294 (mir-294) beneficially affects heart regeneration was discovered via its presence in embryonic stem cell exosomes. Exosomes are extracellular vesicles, membrane-bound packages of molecules that cells pass between one another. They are interesting to the research community because it is in principle much easier to construct a therapy based on delivery of exosomes harvested from stem cells than it is to deliver those same stem cells. Thus most of the present generation of stem cell therapies may well be replaced in the near future by the delivery of extracellular vesicles, and many research groups are testing exosomes from stem cells to see how well they work to spur greater regeneration. Most vesicles contain a wide variety of molecules, but in the case of embryonic […]

13:24 FightAging.OrgEfficiently Reprogramming Fibroblasts into Cardiomyocytes for Heart Regeneration

The heart regenerates only very poorly, and responds to injury by producing scar tissue, a process that involves fibroblast cells. Additionally, the age-related disruption of regenerative processes produced by senescent cells and chronic inflammation tends to empower fibroblasts to produce fibrosis in the heart even in the absence of injury. One potential approach to the challenge of poor heart regeneration and growing fibrosis is to reprogram the fibroblasts of scar tissue into functional heart muscle cells, cardiomyocytes. Given recent demonstrations of in situ cell reprogramming, it is plausible to think that this can be accomplished. The challenge is to do so without disrupting the vital structural and electrical properties of heart tissue. A heart attack leaves damaged scar tissue on the heart and limits its […]

It is well known that the most commonly available forms of stem cell therapy produce benefits via signaling on the part of the transplanted cells, which soon die, rather than via any sort of integration of these cells into tissues. These treatments use varieties of what are called mesenchymal stem cells, which is actually a poorly defined, broad category. One clinic's mesenchymal stem cells are usually meaningfully different from those of the next. Nonetheless, these therapies fairly reliably reduce chronic inflammation. This can allow for improved regeneration in patients, but that outcome is much less reliable in practice.

Reduced bone mineral density and bone quality in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) lead to a higher risk of hip fracture when compared to healthy patients [1].

Researchers have unveiled a new strategy to keep proteins intact and functional in synthetic biomaterials for tissue engineering. Their approach modifies proteins at a specific point so that they can be chemically tethered to the scaffold using light. Since the tether can also be cut by laser light, this method can create evolving patterns of signal proteins throughout a biomaterial scaffold to grow tissues made up of different types of cells.

KYOTO (JP), May 2019 — The human body has powerful healing abilities. But treating brain disorders is no easy task, as brain cells — neurons — have limited ability to regenerate. Nonetheless, stem cells are a form of natural backup, a vestige of our days as still-developing embryos.
The difficulty is that as we age, our brains' stem cells “fall asleep” and become harder to wake up when repairs are needed. Despite efforts to harness these cells to treat neurological damage, scientists have until recently been unsuccessful in decoding the underlying sleep mechanism.
Now, researchers at Kyoto University studying brain chemistry in mice have revealed the ebb and flow of gene expression that may wake neural stem cells from their slumber. These findings, which may also apply to stem cells elsewhere in the body, were recently published in Genes & Development.
