The immune system is normally known for protecting the body from illness. But a subset of immune cells appear to be doing more harm than good. A new study from researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center found that these
Stem cell technology has the potential to revolutionize medicine, but the revolution has been considerably slower than expected. Government restrictions and ethical dilemmas have put up roadblocks to fast-paced biological research, and even when
In Alexandre Dumas's 'Man In The Iron Mask', d'Artagnan sacrifices himself to save his musketeer friends Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and his son Philippe. That scene, some argue, is a great depiction of human altruistic behaviour. But an Indian scientist
The study suggested that this drop in production is due to the shrinking cache of adult stem cells in our brains...Between one month and two years of age-a mouse's normal life span-the scientists observed a 100-fold decrease in the number of brain
Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson have invented a new approach that instead links cancer cell metabolism with poor clinical outcome. This approach can now be applied to virtually any type of human cancer cell. The researchers demonstrate that

That marker is a cluster of small RNA whose expression appears strictly correlated with levels of pluripotency, or "stemness." (The more pluripotent, the more likely a stem cell will develop into the desired tissue, organ or being.) "We identified a
