Biomedical engineers grow personalized tissue transplants for heart, spinal cord, and brain from patients’ own fatty cells.
MIT bioengineers advance a technique to deliver nucleic-acid-based treatment to the lung by a noninvasive aerosol inhalation.
Scientists have created nano tweezers that extract single molecules from cells without destroying them. The device should help researchers study the inner workings of cells in real-time.
Wearable device helps frogs regrow amputated limbs.
Lyndra Therapeutics released its first clinical results based on a single capsule that delivers a steady, week-long supply of Alzheimer's medication.
A new organ-on-a-chip device confirms that damage to the intestinal barrier triggers gut inflammation, which could lead to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
A new, flexible oxygen mapping device could help to prevent rejection of organ transplants and skin grafts.
A new device works like a kidney dialysis machine to remove excess CO2 from the blood to help those with COPD, cystic fibrosis, and other diseases.
Researchers have developed a 3-D printed patch that can deliver healthy cells to the heart after a heart attack.
Engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have figured out a cell-based approach to healing damaged muscle that could offer a more efficient method than those currently used.
Researchers moved closer to solving problems with treating heart disease by developing ways to build tissues and parts of a human heart using human stem cells.
Nanoparticles designed with complementary chemical and mechanical forces improve the targeting of tumors with cancer-fighting drugs.
Cell therapy manufacturing is a new discipline where production of adult and pluripotent stem cell types are required for cell therapies. Several hundreds of clinical trials with adult mesenchymal stem cells for therapies such as auto-immune diseases, bone, cartilage repair and stroke are looking promising. For the pluripotent stem cell therapies, retinal pigment epithelial cells, pancreatic islet progenitors and neurons are being applied for treating blindness, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease in early stage clinical trials.
Barcoded nanoparticles deliver nucleic acids to treat cancer, viral infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have improved the ability of cancer-killing T-cells to target pancreatic tumors rather than healthy tissue by engineering the cells to produce more receptors.
