  • stem cells
  • The journal continuously publishes articles on various topics including biomaterials, critical care, cell regeneration, immunobiology and skin transplantation, stem cells and tissue engineering, and prevention efforts of burns and trauma injury. (apple.com)
  • Clinical evaluation showed stable skin for up to 7 years and molecular biological analysis revealed that the protein introduced by the therapy also was still expressed (indicating a long-term effect of the correction of skin stem cells). (debra-international.org)
  • We developed a novel in vivo transplantation model designated as a clustering-dependent embryoid body transplantation method and generated a bioengineered three-dimensional (3D) integumentary organ system, including appendage organs such as hair follicles and sebaceous glands, from induced pluripotent stem cells. (sciencemag.org)
  • His lab as even successfully developed several types of "brain tumor in a laboratory" to study brain tumors and test drugs to treat them, including taking brain tumor stem cells from patients. (biotechin.asia)
  • intestinal
  • Rare but characteristic presentations include transverse myelopathy (tumor spinal cord compression, 5% of cases), treatment-resistant diarrhea (tumor vasoactive intestinal peptide secretion, 4% of cases), Horner's syndrome (cervical tumor, 2.4% of cases), opsoclonus myoclonus syndrome and ataxia (suspected paraneoplastic cause, 1.3% of cases), and hypertension (catecholamine secretion or renal artery compression, 1.3% of cases).

  • Advances
  • Recent advances have enabled 3D printing of biocompatible materials, cells and supporting components into complex 3D functional living tissues. (biotechin.asia)
  • The next step was 3D bioprinting as a form of tissue engineering, made possible by recent advances in 3D printing technology, cell biology and materials science. (biotechin.asia)
  • As medical technology advances and eligibility criteria change it has become possible to utilize more types of tissue, which has allowed more people to give the gift of life through tissue donation. (donoralliance.org)
  • The lead surgeon, Joseph Murray, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1990 for advances in organ transplantation. (wikipedia.org)
  • regeneration
  • Smi's 2nd Annual Tissue Engineering event will highlight the current key issues in the industry and the opportunities for the future, focusing on tissue repair, replacement and regeneration. (smi-online.co.uk)
  • The Department of Plastic Surgery's applied research lab is named Tissue Regeneration and Molecular Cell Engineering Lab or TRAMCEL. (mdanderson.org)
  • vivo
  • The aim of the project entitled "Combining ex vivo gene therapy with stem cell transplantation for junctional epidermolysis bullosa" was to develop safe tools for implication of a clinical trial for nH-JEB patients with mutations in the COL17A1 gene. (debra-international.org)
  • This preliminary work has enabled us to include novel safety tests for our patients that are treated with ex vivo stem cell/-gene therapy. (debra-international.org)
  • musculoskeletal
  • The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) is one of the institutes and centers that make up the National Institutes of Health, an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). (wikipedia.org)
  • 1982-HHS conferred bureau status on the Institute, resulting in creation of the Division of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases and the appointment of a Division Director. (wikipedia.org)
  • November 1985-The Health Research Extension Act of 1985, P.L. 99-158, established the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases to increase research emphasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The legislation provided for the development of a plan for a national arthritis and musculoskeletal diseases program and established two interagency coordinating committees, one on arthritis and musculoskeletal diseases and one on skin diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerves
  • A dense subcutaneous layer of fat and fibrous tissue that lies beneath the skin, containing the nerves and vessels of the scalp. (wikipedia.org)

  • Transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GvHD) is a rare complication of blood transfusion, in which the donor T lymphocytes mount an immune response against the recipient's lymphoid tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • flap
  • Walter Ernest O'Neil Yeo (20 October 1890 - December 1960) was an English sailor in the First World War, who is thought to have been one of the first people to benefit from advanced plastic surgery, namely a skin flap. (wikipedia.org)
  • a form of skin transplantation called a 'tubed pedicle' flap. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gillies described the flap as "floating in pus at one point" which required extensive care to salvage most of the tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood vessels
  • Since the cornea has no blood vessels (it takes its nutrients from the aqueous humor) it heals much more slowly than a cut on the skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • Follicular units are relatively compact structures, but are surrounded by substantial amounts of non-hair bearing skin. (wikipedia.org)
