- Stem Cell Tikanga. Fox, Andrea // Te Karaka: The Ngai Tahu Magazine;Summer2007, Issue 33, p36
The article focuses on the stem cells of embryos that will provide the biggest breakthrough in combating disease in New Zealand. The Human Assisted Reproductive Technology Act in 2004 regulates procedures assisting human reproduction such as in vitro fertilisation and researches using or...
- In vitro proliferation and colonization of mouse spermatogonial stem cell using low intensity ultrasound. Mohaqiq, M.; Movahedin, M.; Dizaji, M. Mokhatri; Mazaheri, Z. // Iranian Journal of Reproductive Medicine;Jun2014 Supplement, Vol. 12, p91
Introduction: Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) are the foundation of spermatogenesis. Sound wave especially low intensity ultrasound (LIUS) can be effective on increasing the number of cells. Materials and Methods: Isolated SSCs from neonate mice cultured in DMEM culture medium with 10% Fetal...

- The power to pick the best embryo. Nowak, Rachel // New Scientist;10/25/2003, Vol. 180 Issue 2418, p12
Hundreds of cells have been grown from a single cell taken from an early mouse embryo. And in the future, cells taken from an embryo for testing might also provide an unlimited source of matching stem cells for treating diseases that the person might develop later in life. It is now over a...
