Isolation of amniotic stem cell lines with potential for therapy
Stem cells capable of differentiating to multiple lineages may be valuable for therapy. We report the isolation of human and rodent amniotic fluid–derived stem (AFS) cells that express embryonic andExpand

Human hepatic stem cells from fetal and postnatal donors
Human hepatic stem cells (hHpSCs), which are pluripotent precursors of hepatoblasts and thence of hepatocytic and biliary epithelia, are located in ductal plates in fetal livers and in Canals ofExpand

Cloned, CD117 Selected Human Amniotic Fluid Stem Cells Are Capable of Modulating the Immune Response
Amniotic fluid stem (AFS) cells are broadly multipotent, can be expanded extensively in culture, are not tumorigenic and can be readily cryopreserved for cell banking. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC)Expand

Smart biomaterials design for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
As a prominent tool in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering (TE) has been an active field of scientific research for nearly three decades. Clinical application of TE technologies has beenExpand

Dystrophin-deficient cardiomyocytes derived from human urine: new biologic reagents for drug discovery.
The ability to extract somatic cells from a patient and reprogram them to pluripotency opens up new possibilities for personalized medicine. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been employedExpand

Hepatic stem cells and hepatoblasts: identification, isolation, and ex vivo maintenance.
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses hepatic stem cells (HpSCs) and provides protocols on HpSCs, especially human hepatic stem cells (hHpSCs). It also includes development of a serum-free,Expand

Biliary tree stem cells, precursors to pancreatic committed progenitors: Evidence for possible life‐long pancreatic organogenesis
Peribiliary glands (PBGs) in bile duct walls, and pancreatic duct glands (PDGs) associated with pancreatic ducts, in humans of all ages, contain a continuous, ramifying network of cells inExpand

Stem Cell Populations Giving Rise to Liver, Biliary Tree, and Pancreas
Determined stem cells for liver and pancreas are present in stem cell niches, peribiliary glands (PBGs), throughout the biliary tree. PBGs are connected to intrahepatic stem cell niches, canals ofExpand

Towards Omni-Tomography—Grand Fusion of Multiple Modalities for Simultaneous Interior Tomography
We recently elevated interior tomography from its origin in computed tomography (CT) to a general tomographic principle, and proved its validity for other tomographic modalities including SPECT, MRI,Expand
