Old muscle stem cells express high levels of the cancer-associated molecule CD47. Blocking a pathway mediated by CD47 restored strength to old mice in a Stanford Medicine study.
Researchers have shown initial viability of an embryo that contains both chimpanzee and macaque cells in a preliminary study that explores the feasibility of primate organ genesis.
Muscle stem cells enter a deep resting state during fasting or when fed a high-fat ketogenic diet, a Stanford-led study finds. This promotes stem cell resilience but slows injury repair.
Stanford scientists have developed a device that delivers and electrically stimulates stem cells to promote stroke healing.
