Everything You Need to Know About Stem Cell Types

What are human pluripotent stem cells? Pluripotent stem cells are cells that have the ability to make in culture fetal-like cells that derive from any of the three main developmentally distinct layers of developing embryos.  These layers are called endodermal, mesodermal, and ectodermal. Each layer gives rise to mature cells in the organs and tissues

Biomarker Development

Asymmetrex’s Adult Tissue Stem Cell Biomarker Technology Enables Cancer Stem Cell Research Cancer stem cells are cells found in tumors that have the ability to propagate the tumor after its dissociation.  In some tumors, this property is expressed by a large fraction of the total tumor cells, meaning abundant cancer stem cells.  However, in many

10 Questions About Stem Cell Research

Research on perinatal and postnatal tissue stem cells continues to be very active worldwide. Perinatal stem cells are stem cells found in tissues associated with birth, like in the placenta, umbilical cord, and the amniotic fluid that surrounds babies when they are developing in the uterus. Postnatal stem cells are found in the body after
