17:13 StemCellsPortal.comlScientists Optimize Procedure Toward Regenerative Medicine for Bone Defects

Scientists from the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute have developed a new bone engineering technique called Segmental Additive Tissue Engineering (SATE). The technique, described in a paper published online in Scientific Reports, allows researchers to combine segments of bone engineered from stem cells to create large scale, personalized grafts that will enhance treatment for those suffering from bone disease or injury through regenerative medicine. 
"We are hopeful that SATE will one day be able to improve the lives of the millions of people suffering from bone injury due to trauma, cancer, osteoporosis, osteonecrosis and other devastating conditions," said Susan L. Solomon, NYSCF’s CEO. "Our goal is to help these patients return to normal life, and by leveraging the power of regenerative medicine, SATE brings us one step closer to reaching that

The scientists involved are searching for ways in which they might be able to improve upon mammalian regeneration; the axolotl is one of the few higher species capable of perfect, repeated regeneration of lost limbs and severe damage to other organs. There are limits, of course, and the axolotl is just as mortal as any mammal, but mammals, ourselves included, have in comparison a very poor capacity for regeneration. We can barely grow back a fingertip, and even that only when very young, and not at all reliably. There are tantalizing hints that the capacity for far greater feats of regeneration still lurks within mammals, but disabled, or overridden. […]

18:19 StemCellsPortal.comlCalorie Restriction Promotes Intestinal Regeneration by Reserve Intestinal Stem Cells

Review of “Calorie Restriction Governs Intestinal Epithelial Regeneration through Cell-Autonomous Regulation of mTORC1 in Reserve Stem Cells” from Stem Cell Reports by Stuart P. Atkinson

Long-term calorie restriction (CR) represents an effective means of prolonging healthy lifespan in many different species and may function by preserving tissue-resident stem and progenitor cell function. While long-term CR is “unappetizing” for many, studies in young and healthy animals have established that shorter-term CR enhances recovery from injuries to tissues such as the intestine [1, 2]. However, the specific stem cell-types involved in CR-promoted intestinal regeneration remained unidentified until the publication of a new Stem Cell Reports study by researchers from the laboratory of Christopher J. Lengner (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA) [3].

15:24 StemCellsPortal.comlFasting boosts stem cells’ regenerative capacity

As people age, their intestinal stem cells begin to lose their ability to regenerate. These stem cells are the source for all new intestinal cells, so this decline can make it more difficult to recover from gastrointestinal infections or other conditions that affect the intestine.
This age-related loss of stem cell function can be reversed by a 24-hour fast, according to a new study from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) biologists. The researchers found that fasting dramatically improves stem cells’ ability to regenerate, in both aged and young mice.
In fasting mice, cells begin breaking down fatty acids instead of glucose, a change that stimulates the stem cells to become more regenerative. The researchers found that they could also boost regeneration with a molecule that activates the same metabolic switch.
Such an intervention could potentially help older people

13:46 FightAging.OrgHMGB1 Accelerates Tissue Regeneration by Increasing Stem Cell Activity

Researchers here outline a method of pushing stem cells in several different tissues into greater activity, thereby accelerating regeneration from injury and potentially improving ongoing tissue maintenance. Given a few more decades of development, regenerative medicine will probably bear little resemblance to today's approaches of cell transplantation, and will instead rely upon a combination of (a) delivering signal molecules or otherwise controlling cell behavior, and (b) repairing damage that accumulates in important cell populations, such as stem cells. If stem cells are kept in a well maintained state, and can be directed to perform as needed, then a major component of the progression of aging will be eliminated. This is, of course, a very large project. There are hundreds of types of cell in the […]

13:46 FightAging.OrgMesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy Aids Spinal Cord Regeneration in Rats

Arguably the most reliable of first generation stem cell therapies is the transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells. The cells don't last long in the recipient, which is a problem characteristic of all such cell therapies, but the signals they secrete while still alive act to change native cell behavior and suppress inflammation for an extended period of time. Since chronic inflammation degrades tissue maintenance and regeneration, this respite can allow some degree of healing that wouldn't have otherwise occurred - though that benefit is much less reliable than the initial suppression of inflammation. In the study reported here, researchers turn this set of mechanisms towards regeneration from spinal injury, demonstrating improvements in rats. This is still a long way from comprehensive repair, and much of […]

Very shortly after birth, mammals are capable of far greater feats of regeneration than is the case for older individuals. The research community has put a fair amount of effort into determining why this is the case, though far less progress has been made here than in investigations of the biochemistry of highly regenerative species such as salamanders and zebrafish. This popular science article captures some of the present state of knowledge and uncertainty. Near future advances in medicine arising from this line of research seem unlikely at the present time, as by the look of it there is further to go yet in building a foundation of understanding sufficient to start talking about therapies. Newborn mice are able to repair damaged heart tissue better […]

Today I'll point out a demonstration of one of the many ways in which calorie restriction and fasting improve matters in our biology, in this case via improved stem cell function. As always it is worth bearing in mind that while forms of calorie restriction produce useful short term and long term healthy benefits in humans, they don't have anywhere near the same size of effect on life span as occurs in short-lived species such as mice. We didn't evolve to react as strongly to famines, as famines are typically a much shorter fraction of our life span in comparison to that of a mouse. Stem cell populations, of different types for each variety of tissue in the body, support surrounding tissue by providing a […]

Human activity continues to shape environmental systems around the world creating novel ecosystems that are increasingly prevalent in what some scientists call the Anthropocene (the age of humans). The island of Guam is well known as a textbook case for the devastating effects of invasive species on island ecosystems with the extirpation of most of the forest dwelling birds due to brown tree snake predation. The loss of native birds has resulted in a loss of forest seed dispersers. Recent research conducted by lead author Ann Marie Gawel, based on her University of Guam master's thesis, has found an unlikely forest ally, feral pigs.
