New way to mass produce natural cancer-killing cells offers hope for patients
PRWeb via Laboratory Network
In a new study published by STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, scientists report on a way to produce natural cancer-killing cells in the lab in a quantity that could one day make them viable for treating patients. While the production of human natural killer cells in the lab from human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells has become routine, it's been on a limited scale. But this study shows how to increase the number of resulting cells while also reducing the amount of work and time involved in producing them.

Human-mouse tooth seeds advance bioteeth research
Biologists at King's College London have combined human and mouse tissue to create bioteeth which can form true roots. The research was exploring ways to generate immature teeth (sometimes called tooth primordia) which mimic those found in human embryos. The immature teeth take the form of cell pellets which can then be transplanted into an adult jaw where they develop normally into functional teeth.

Researchers form new nerve cells — directly in the brain
Lund University via Medical Xpress
The field of cell therapy, which aims to form new cells in the body in order to cure disease, has taken another important step in the development towards new treatments. A new report from researchers at Lund University in Sweden shows that it is possible to re-programm other cells to become nerve cells, directly in the brain.

Computer simulations yields clues to cell interactions
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory via R&D Magazine
Cell interact with their surroundings using proteins called integrin, which reside in a cell's outer plasma membrane. Despite their importance — good and bad — scientists don't exactly know how integrins work. Scientists have yet to obtain the entire crystal structure of integrin within the plasma membrane, so a computer model of integrin that reveals its molecular dynamics has been developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers.

New SOX-11 (MRQ-58) for MCL!

SOX-11 expression is specific for the identification of cyclin D1 negative mantle cell lymphoma. SOX-11 is useful due to its high expression in cyclin D1 positive and negative MCL. Many B-cell lymphomas can mimic MCL; therefore, it’s important to have additional antibodies to detect cyclin D1 negative MCL. Learn More.

Monoclonal antibody targets, kills leukemia cells
University of California, San Diego via Bioscience Technology
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center have identified a humanized monoclonal antibody that targets and directly kills chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. The findings, published in the online Early Edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, represent a potential new therapy for treating at least some patients with CLL, the most common type of blood cancer in the United States.

New, effective vaccine blocks H5N1 avian flu
American Society for Microbiology via Bioscience Technology
Until now most experimental vaccines against the highly lethal H5N1 avian influenza virus have lacked effectiveness. But a new vaccine has proven highly effective against the virus when tested in both mice and ferrets. It is also effective against the H9 subtype of avian influenza. The research is published online ahead of print in the Journal of Virology.

Scientists create artificial sperms from stem cells
The Japanese have done it again! For the first time in human history, they have successfully utilized sperm cells created with stem-cell techniques to fertilize eggs and produce live, normal offspring. They used embryonic stem cells of mice to make primordial germ cells, which are the precursors for sperm cells.
