Stem Cells Could Be the Answer to Infertility

10-things-you-should-never-say-to-a-pregnant-womanIn a clinical trial conducted at Augusta University Medical College of Georgia, doctors have found that autologous [the patients’ own] stem cell injections can restore estrogen levels in the ovaries, the lack of which contributes to Premature Ovarian Failure (POF). Patients who received the injections saw an increase in estrogen levels in 3 months following the injections and, in 6 months, resumed regular menstruation cycles, which had ceased due to premature menopause. POF primarily affects women under 40 and causes the ovaries to cease their normal functions, leading to premature menopause, and rendering the women incapable of conceiving a child. The procedure involves the  collection of the patients’ own stem cells, which are then  isolated and re-introduced into the body to rejuvenate the prematurely aged ovaries. The study uses a minimally invasive treatment to inject the stem cells into one ovary, leaving the other untreated as a control. Through ultrasound imaging, the treated ovary has increased in size compared to the control, signifying a restoration in normal ovarian function.

According to Dr. Ayman Al Hendy, a professor at the University and supervisor of the study, “[The patients’] estrogen levels have increased significantly and the possibility that they may again become fertile looks very promising.”

Clinical trials, such as the aforementioned, support the wisdom of banking your own stem cells to facilitate access to emerging stem cell based treatments, as well as the pragmatism of using younger cells, given that cryopreservation keeps the cells at the age in which they were harvested. We believe the best stem cells to use will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
