Lancet (London, England) - 21 November 2009

Cell therapy for large burns is dependent upon autologous epidermis reconstructed in vitro. However, the effectiveness of current procedures is limited by the delay needed to culture the patient's own keratinocytes. To assess whether the keratinocyte progeny of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) ...

Regenerative medicine - 01 November 2009

Owing to their original properties, pluripotent human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and their progenies are highly valuable not only for regenerative medicine, but also as tools to study development and pathologies or as cellular substrates to screen and test new drugs. However, ensuring their gen...

Medecine sciences : M/S - 01 May 2009

Because of their self-renewal and pluripotency properties, human embryonic stem cells (hES) receive a marked attention from scientists and clinicians for regenerative medicine. The most recent application of hES cells may however reside in their use as a tool in drug development. The currently av...

Organogenesis - 01 April 2009

Recent studies have significantly improved our ability to investigate cell transplantation and study the physiology of transplanted cells in cardiac tissue. Several previous studies have shown that fully-immersed heart slices can be used for electrophysiological investigations. Additionally, isch...

Cardiovascular research - 01 February 2009

Within the framework of studies aiming at regenerative medicine for cardiovascular disease, we have developed an in vitro model to analyse human embryonic stem (ES) cell engraftment into the myocardium.
