Stem Cells Help Patients Following Chemo/Radiation

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Sep 28, 2018 11:41:00 AM

images-11Researchers are utilizing mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) infusions to help heal severe tissue damage following radiation treatments. Often, when patients receive treatment for cancer, the process involves painful and prolonged side effects from the chemotherapy and radiation, which significantly impacts the patients’ quality of life, even when in remission. MSC intravenous infusions demonstrated both healing properties and resulted in a reduction of pain and fistulization (the abnormal connections between organs due to injury and inflammation) following radiation. The patients receiving the treatment had sustained intestinal tissue damage following radiation treatments, and prior to the treatment all patients were experiencing pain, inflammation, fibrosis and hemorrhaging.

In a prolonged follow-up with all patients receiving the MSC treatment, chemo/radiation side effects diminished greatly and the infusion did not impede their stable remission status. While still early in the testing phase, this novel use of MSCs is poised to  change care protocols for thousands of patients who undergo cancer therapies and achieve remission but still suffer from treatment side effects.

Advances in stem cell based regenerative treatments are creating more effective treatment options for patients suffering from a wide variety of disease, trauma and injury. To learn more about stem cells, and how families can bank their own valuable stem cells by recovering the very powerful dental pulp stem cells during routine dental procedures; such as wisdom teeth extractions or the during the loss of baby teeth, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
