Mother's Stem Cells Likely Key to Treating Genetic Disease Before Birth

January 18, 2011 UCSF researchers have tackled a decade-long scientific conundrum, and their discovery is expected to lead to significant advances in using stem cells to treat genetic diseases before birth.

UCSF team finds new source of immune cells during pregnancy

December 16, 2010 UCSF researchers have shown for the first time that the human fetal immune system arises from an entirely different source than the adult immune system, and is more likely to tolerate than fight foreign substances in its environment.

Cell of origin for brain tumors may predict response to therapy

December 14, 2010 For patients with glioma, the most common primary brain tumor, new findings may explain why current therapies fail to eradicate the cancer. A UCSF-led team of scientists has identified for the first time that progenitor rather than neural stem cells underly a type of glioma called oligodendroglioma.
