• Unraveling the biological mystery of how cells regulate their fate
    13 February 2015
    Stem Cells Australia researchers – Professor Christine Wells and Professor Ernst Wolvetang – are part of an international consortium that has been able to shed light on how mammalian cells transition from one type to another during development and in response to stress or infection. In the work, published today in the prestigious journal Science, researchers were able to show the importance of a key regulatory “switch” involved in triggering a cascade of genetic changes that ultimately result in dramatic change in the attributes of the cell.

  • US trial of HSCT for MS publishes interim results
    12 January 2015
    Researchers in the US have published a 3-year interim report on the HALT-MS trial of autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplant for MS. While the interim results show that the majority of the 24 patients treated achieved remission from MS disease activity for up to three years, data so far also suggests that the treatment’s effects may not be sustained over time.
