    Aromatic turmerone induces neural stem cell proliferation

    Aromatic turmerone increased the number of neural stem cells in cell culture and adult rat brains in vivo, suggesting it would make a promising drug candidate for neural regeneration.

    Physiological conditioning by electric field stimulation

    The cardioregeneration capability of cardiomyocyte progenitor cells is improved by electric field stimulation; this could be used to modify cardiac progenitor cells towards a cardiogenic phenotype and incorporated into transdifferentiation protocols.

  • Reparative activity of pericardial ADSCs

    Although phenotypically identical, pericardial adipose tissue-derived stromal cells (ADSCs) in comparison to subcutaneous ADSCs were shown to exhibit potent differentiation towards cardiomyocytes and induced significant structural repair in the injured heart.

"Stem cells have enormous potential for alleviating suffering for many diseases which currently have no effective therapy. The field has progressed to the clinic and it is important that this pathway is underpinned by excellent science and rigorous standards of clinical research. The journal provides an important avenue of publication in translational aspects of stem cell therapy spanning preclinical studies, clinical research and commercialization."

"The study of stem cells is one of the most exciting areas of contemporary biomedical research. We believe that Stem Cell Research & Therapy will act as a highly active forum for both basic and translational research into stem cell biology and therapies. Specifically, by developing this forum for cutting edge research, we hope that Stem Cell Research & Therapy will play a significant role in bringing together the critical information to synergize stem cell science with stem cell therapies."
