'Miracle' stem cell therapy reverses multiple sclerosis

In the new treatment, specialists use a high dose of chemotherapy to knock out the immune system before rebuilding it with stem cells taken from the patients own blood. Stem cells are so effective because they can become any cell in the body based on their environment Continue reading

Space flight can age immune system prematurely

Spending long duration on space flights may accelerate ageing of the immune system in astronauts, finds a research. “This study shows that a model of spaceflight conditions could not only be used to test the efficacy of molecules to improve immune responses following a spaceflight in astronauts but also in the elderly and bed-ridden populations on Earth,” said Jean-Pol Frippiat, researcher from Lorraine University in Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy, France. This model could also help understanding the aging of the immune system called immunosenescence, he said. Continue reading

Early Study Says Stem Cells May Reverse Multiple Sclerosis Disability

By Amy Norton HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 20, 2015 (HealthDay News) — A therapy that uses patients’ own primitive blood cells may be able to reverse some of the effects of multiple sclerosis, a preliminary study suggests. The findings, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, had experts cautiously optimistic Continue reading

New Cellular Pathway Triggering Allergic Asthma Response Identified

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, with collaborators in Korea and Scotland, have identified a novel signaling pathway critical to the immune response of cells associated with the initiation of allergic asthma. The discovery, they say, could point the way to new therapies that suppress the inflammatory allergic response, offering potential relief to millions of Americans with the chronic lung condition and potentially other allergic diseases Continue reading

Stem Cell Therapy for MS Shows Promise | Stem Cells Therapy

Experimental treatment kills off, then resets the immune system WebMD News from HealthDay By Dennis Thompson HealthDay Reporter MONDAY, Dec. 29, 2014 (HealthDay News) An experimental therapy that kills off and then resets the immune system has given three years of remission to a small group of multiple sclerosis patients, researchers say. About eight in 10 patients given this treatment had no new adverse events after three years Continue reading

Study Further Validates Cell Therapy Approach to Reverse Type 1 Diabetes

The study, conducted by scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and ViaCyte, a privately-held regenerative medicine company, documented in a mouse model that a selective blockade of specific elements of the immune system, co-stimulatory blocking agents CTLA4Ig and anti-CD154, allows the implanted precursor cells to avoid immune rejection and develop into the insulin … Continue reading

A Signature for Success

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise November 19, 2014, New York, NY A team led by Ludwig and Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) researchers has published a landmark study on the genetic basis of response to a powerful cancer therapy known as immune checkpoint blockade. Their paper, in the current issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, describes the precise genetic signatures in melanoma tumors that determine whether a patient will respond to one such therapy. It also explains in exquisite detail how those genetic profiles translate into subtle molecular changes that enable the immune system attack of cancer cells in response to immune checkpoint blockade Continue reading

In autoimmune diseases, researchers pinpoint genetic risks, cellular culprits

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 29-Oct-2014 Contact: Pete Farley peter.farley@ucsf.edu 415-502-6397 University of California – San Francisco @ucsf Scores of autoimmune diseases afflicting one in 12 Americans ranging from type 1 diabetes, to multiple sclerosis (MS), to rheumatoid arthritis, to asthma mysteriously cause the immune system to harm tissues within our own bodies. Now, a new study pinpoints the complex genetic origins for many of these diseases, a discovery that may lead to better diagnosis and ultimately to improved treatments. Continue reading
