Stem Cell Therapy: Researchers find New Method to overcome Major Challenge

Researchers have discovered a new technique that overcomes one of the major challenges of stem cell therapy. A drug, co-created by UBC researchers, might overcome one of the major challenges of stem cell therapy – their tendency to differentiate, becoming specific tissue cells too early and too quickly. If the drug works as well as it did in lab mice, it could help bring new stem cell treatments closer to reality.

Earlier Exposures Cause Immune Response in Pediatric ARI

The suite of genes early-response cells was defined by factors such as age and previous exposures to viruses, according to a study by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Better understanding how early infections influence long-term immune response has implications for the diagnosis and treatment of young patients who suffer from acute respiratory tract infections.
