Treatment for ‘low T’ could someday come from a single skin cell, USC research shows

USC researchers have successfully grown human, testosterone-producing cells in the lab, paving the way to someday treat low testosterone with personalized replacement cells. In today’s Proceedings from the National Academy of Sciences, scientists describe how they transformed stem cells into functioning Leydig cells — the cells in the testes that produce the male sex hormone. “Our study provides a way to generate possible [Read More...]

Study shows stem cells may be better choice than tissue transplantation for treating LSCD

The study’s lead investigator, Vincent Borderie, M.D., Ph.D. Results of a phase II clinical trial released today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine (SCTM) indicate that a limbal stem cell (LSC) transplantation is superior to a tissue graft in treating limbal stem cell deficiency syndrome (LSCD). This could result in a new and better treatment for LSCD, a condition that is mostly caused by burns to the eye. In its most extreme form, LSCD [Read More...]
