17:20 GenEngNews.comRegeneration of Dental Enamel Possible Using New Approach

Avoiding dental caries typically begins with preventing the erosion of tooth enamel. Unfortunately, unlike other tissues of the body, enamel cannot regenerate once it is lost, which can lead to pain and tooth loss. These problems affect more than 50 percent of the world's population, and so finding ways to recreate enamel has long been a major need in dentistry. Now, investigators at Queen Mary University of London have developed a new way to grow mineralized materials which could regenerate hard tissues such as dental enamel and bone.        Findings from the new study were published today in Nature Communications through an article entitled “ Protein disorder-order interplay to guide the growth of hierarchical mineralized structures .” Discussing the new study, lead investigator Sherif Elsharkawy, Ph.D., a dentist, and researcher at Queen Mary's School of

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].

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.

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 […]

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.

First generation stem cell therapies largely achieve their results through brief signaling changes, not through any lasting work on the part of the transplanted cells. Those cells in fact die quite rapidly, but the signals they secrete while still alive change the behavior of native cells. This produces benefits such as reduced inflammation or improved regenerative capacity. Given this, why not deliver the signals instead of the cells? It could in principle be an easier, less complex task. Much of cell signaling involves the exchange of extracellular vesicles, tiny membrane-bound packages of molecules.

Spurring greater brain tissue maintenance via generation of neurons is a beneficial goal in and of itself, but as a compensatory treatment, it can't be enough on its own to turn back neurodegeneration primarily caused by factors such as metabolic waste and chronic inflammation.

In adult mammals, the liver is the most regenerative organ, capable of significant regrowth following injury. Why is this the case? Researchers here point to a small subset of liver cells in mice that are distinguished by telomerase expression, and while mice and humans have quite different telomerase and telomere dynamics, indirect evidence suggests that a similar population may exist in our species. Significant telomerase expression is the characteristic of stem cells that allows for unlimited replication: telomerase acts lengthen telomeres, the caps at the ends of chromosomes that shorten with each cell division. When too short, cells enter senescence or destroy themselves. Lacking telomerase, the vast majority of cells can only divide a set number of times. This segregation between a few privileged stem […]

Over the years numerous research groups have claimed the existence of novel stem cell or stem cell like populations in various tissues. Stem cells spend much of their time dormant, but with the right signals or other form of control, it is plausible that they could be directed to greater activity, enhancing tissue regeneration. This is a slow process of discovery, however, usually accompanied by debates over whether or not cells of a claimed type actually exist, whether the research methodologies used in published studies are sound, and so forth. It is wise not to become too excited over any specific claim, but the prevalence of this sort of research suggests that there may be something there. The results noted here are an example of […]

23:50 FightAging.OrgResults from Another Trial of a Tissue Engineered Retinal Pigment Epithelium Patch

Just a few weeks ago I noted the results from an early trial of a form of retinal patch, in which the patients involved showed striking signs of improved vision, considering their age and the degree to which their macular degeneration had advanced. Today another set of clinical trial results were published by a separate group using a similar approach - human embryonic stem cells are used to derive sufficient retinal pigment epithelium cells to create a structured patch, resembling retinal tissue in at least some aspects. The patch is then implanted into the retina, and sufficient cells survive and integrate to restore some function to areas damaged by the progression of age-related macular degeneration. That two teams are seeing positive outcomes from this type […]

Review of “Evaluating Interaction of Cord Blood Hematopoietic Stem Progenitor Cells with Functionally Integrated 3D microenvironments” from STEM CELLS Translational Medicine by Stuart P. Atkinson

While human cord blood represents a potentially important source of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPC), current two dimensional (2D) growth conditions employed to amplify cell numbers to the level required for many regenerative applications lead to a decline in the absolute percentage of the most primitive HSPCs [1]. 

To solve this vexing problem and boost the regenerative potential of cord blood, researchers from the laboratories of Shay Soker and Graça Almeida-Porada (Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA) shifted from two dimensions to three dimensions in a recent STEM CELLS

On the morning of March 20, eye surgeon Jason Comander injected viruses carrying lab-grown genes into the eyes of a boy whose vision had been gradually disappearing. If all goes as planned, the 13-year-old patient — who lives with an inherited genetic defect that causes blindness — will experience an improvement in eyesight in about a month. After a series of tests, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this gene-therapy treatment, called Luxturna, in December 2017.  SEE ALSO: Doctors find virus in a pond, use it to destroy antibiotic-resistant bacteria in man's heart Three months later, the procedure Comander performed at Massachusetts Eye and Ear served as the first time an FDA-approved gene therapy was used on a person living with an inherited, and incurable, genetic disease.

Imagine being able to print out healthy tissue with just a sample of a patient's own cells. While printed replacement human body parts might seem like science fiction, the use of 3D printing technologies for medical applications is a relatively new but rapidly expanding research field, although still quite a way from clinical application for treating patients. However, currently available bioinks cannot 3D print self-sustaining anatomic-size structures containing live cells. To overcome the limitations of existing bioinks, researchers have developed a highly printable bioink for fabricating large scale, cell-laden, bioactive scaffolds.

13:46 FightAging.OrgA Tissue Engineered Retinal Patch Improves Vision in Macular Degeneration Patients

The trial results announced here represent a promising step forward in efforts to regenerate an age-damaged retina, particularly because the patients were in an advanced stage of their degenerative condition and nonetheless achieved a meaningful degree of restored sight. Macular degeneration has a number of different manifestations, and here the wet form was treated, which involves excessive growth of blood vessels in the retina and consequent death of the retinal cells necessary for vision. Researchers have established an approach involving the generation of a patch of engineered retinal cells that can be implanted to restore some of the lost retinal function. Given the details, it is interesting to speculate on the degree to which the transplanted cells are helping by integrating into the retina versus […]

Waseda University researchers recently elucidated the regenerative processes by neural stem cells using a stab injury model in the optic tectum, a less studied area of the brain, of adult zebrafish. This study has brought them a step closer to shedding light on how an injured, human central nervous system (CNS) could be restored.
"Unlike mammals, zebrafish have superior abilities to generate new neurons and to regenerate tissues in the brain after an injury, but surprisingly their genes are said to be very similar to humans and mice," explained Toshio Ohshima, M.D., Ph.D., professor of molecular neurobiology at Waseda. "There have even been reports on how the mechanism of zebrafish's regenerative abilities could be applied to mice. This means that there is a possibility in which this same mechanism could be applied to humans as well."

Some of Brazil's most important rivers, including the Xingu, Tocantins, Araguaia, São Francisco, Parnaíba, Gurupi, Jequitinhonha, Paraná and Paraguay, rise in the Cerrado, the only savanna in the world with perennial rivers. This biome is at risk owing to rapid conversion to pasture and cropland, in conjunction with inadequate management of preserved areas, despite its tremendous importance as a natural resource to a country with the world's third-largest technically usable hydroelectric potential and where hydropower accounts for 77.2 percent of the total supply of electricity.

Researchers in Sweden and the U.S. report new insights into how the human body sets its target blood glucose level—the glycemic set point—and say their findings could have implications for ongoing diabetes research and the development of regenerative therapies. Every animal species has its own signature glycemic set point, and a normal glucose level for one species may be life threatening to another. What hasn’t been known until now, however, is which organ is responsible for defining that glycemic set point in each species. Karolinska Institutet researchers, led by Per-Olof Berggren, Ph.D., have now shown that transplanting the islets from different species into mice resulted in the recipient animals taking on the glycemic set point of the donor species. “We found that the engrafted islets transferred the glycemic levels of the donor species,” comments Dr. Berggren, a researcher at the
