The researchers of United States find that Electronic cigarettes damage brain stem cells

The researchers in the United States (US) have found that Electronic Cigarettes (ECs) produce a stress response in brain stem cells. They identified the mechanism underlying EC-induced stem cell toxicity as “Stress-Induced Mitochondrial Hyper-fusion (SIMH) using cultured mouse neural stem cells. The study showed that exposure of stem cells to e-liquids, aerosols, or nicotine produces ..


Tumor Stem Cells multiply and fuel Cancer: Study

As per latest research tumors have been found to contain their own pool of stem cells that can multiply and keep fueling the cancer, seeding re-growth. The study deals with a different type of cancer stem cells. What are Stem cells? Stem cells are special cells found in all multi-cellular organisms. These cells have potential ..
