Blood Cell Production Boosted with Nicotinamide Riboside

Blood Cell Production Boosted with Nicotinamide Riboside Blood Cell Production Boosted with Nicotinamide Riboside The study shows, for the first time, that nicotinamide riboside as a dietary supplement can have a significant positive effect on preventing blood-recovery problems in cancer patients, even after chemo- or radio-therapy. The NAD-Booster Nicotinamide Riboside Potently Stimulates Hematopoiesis through Increased…

Scientists create germ cell-supporting embryonic Sertoli-like cells from skin cells

Contact: Nicole Rura rura@wi.mit.edu 617-258-6851 Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (September 6, 2012) – Using a stepwise trans-differentiation process, Whitehead Institute researchers have turned skin cells into embryonic Sertoli-like cells. The main role of mature Sertoli cells is to provide support and nutrition to the developing sperm cells. Furthermore, Sertoli cells have been…

Scientists successfully awaken sleeping stem cells: ” might be possible to turn on the eye’s own resources to regenerate damaged retinas, without the need for transplanting outside retinal tissue or stem cells,”

Contact: Patti Jacobs pjacobs12@comcast.net 617-868-0077 Schepens Eye Research Institute New hope for regenerating the human retina damaged by disease or injury Boston, MA—Scientists at Schepens Eye Research Institute have discovered what chemical in the eye triggers the dormant capacity of certain non-neuronal cells to transform into progenitor cells, a stem-like cell that can generate new…
