Stem Cells Accelerate Diabetic Wound Healing

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been found to be effective in accelerating healing time for diabetics. In patients with diabetes, high blood sugar levels negatively impact circulation and impair the immune system’s ability to fight off infections at the site of wounds. In an animal study, adipose derived MSCs, proved to be effective at decreasing inflammation and increasing circulation around wounds. Previous studies have utilized MSCs recovered from bone marrow. This study demonstrates the potential of MSCs, which can be derived from multiple sources, including teeth, to treat the millions of diabetics around the world who suffer from this debilitating affliction.

Since one of the most crippling symptoms of prolonged, and particularly uncontrolled, diabetes is poor circulation and an extremely slow ability, or inability, to heal wounds, this treatment would facilitate healing, severely limit the risk of infection and greatly improve the patients' quality of life. Clinical studies utilizing the patient’s own stem cells are anticipated in the near future.
