Arthritis Treated With Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Jul 1, 2016 4:00:00 PM

Dr. Christian Jorgensen, head of the clinical unit for osteoarticular diseases, and his team from Lapeyronie University Hospital in Montpellier, France have a treatment for arthritis using the patient’s own [autologous] stem cells. Following the recovery of the stem cells, they were injected directly into the knee joint affected by arthritis. The experiment consisted of three groups receiving different dosages of the stem cells. Interestingly, each group experienced significant improvements in pain and mobility of the joint.

3D Printed Cartilage

Posted by davids@stemsave.com on Apr 21, 2016 3:11:00 PM

We all take articular cartilage for granted. It takes up a seemingly insignificant amount of space, and somehow absorbs the full pressure our body weight. Arthritis and articular injuries can cause chronic and crippling pain. One group of researchers is developing 3D printed cartilage by bioprinting with an ‘ink’ containing human cells. This technology may one day lead to printed implants, noses, ears, and knees.

Cartilage Regrowth Due to Autologous Stem Cell Injections

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Apr 4, 2016 2:00:00 PM

Doctors from the Melbourne Stem Cell Center are using stem cells to regrow damaged knee cartilage. Over 70 patients have had their own isolated and expanded mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) injected into their own knee joints. In initial results, half of those treated at Melbourne Stem Cell Center saw a three-quarters reduction in pain and vastly improved knee function.

Arthritis Treatment Employs Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on Mar 24, 2016 1:47:17 PM

Osteoarthritis is the most common chronic condition of the joints, occurring most often in the knees, hips, lower back, and neck. There are approximately 54 million patients in the U.S., of which some 760,000 patients undergo surgery costing an average $33,706, according to the U.S. Center of Disease Control and Prevention. One biotechnology company is combating this problem by utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells.

Bone Regeneration Made Possible With Stem Cells

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Mar 8, 2015 5:20:22 AM

Epibone creates precisely measured scaffolding for stem cells to recreate damaged bone.

The New York-based startup Epibone intends to begin human testing on a procedure that will utilize stem cells to regenerate living bone tissue. The researchers, originally from Columbia University, will apply autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to nanofiber scaffolding of the desired size and shape and direct the stem cells to differentiate into a physical and genetic replica of the patient’s own bone.

New York Times: The Eruption of Stem Cell Therapies.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Sep 16, 2014 11:04:35 AM

Mr. Edgar Irastorza is one of thousands of people already benefiting from the progression of stem cell based therapies.

As reported on the front page of the New York Times Science section, clinical applications of stem cell based therapies are accelerating at a rate that will revolutionize the medical field in a matter of years. In the United States alone, there are currently over 4000 therapies in clinical trials for the treatment of heart disease, blindness, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, H.I.V., and other diseases, injuries, and traumas.

Osteoarthritis Stem Cell Treatment in Clinical Trial

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Sep 16, 2014 6:55:33 AM

The transplantation of stem cells into areas affected by osteoarthritis allow lost cartilage tissue to regenerate.

In recent clinical trials, researchers at the National University of Ireland Galway have successfully utilized adult stem cells to treat patients with osteoarthritis. The treatment involves recovering the patients’ own [autologous] stem cells and then injecting the stem cells into cartilage to stimulate the regeneration of lost tissue.

Osteoarthritis Treatment Utilizes Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on May 8, 2014 9:17:56 AM

Researchers have found a way to use a patient's own stem cells to ease the pain of osteoarthritis.

In a recent Phase 1 Clinical Trial, a team of researchers at the National University of Ireland, Galway, were successful in developing a treatment for osteoarthritis that utilizes autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. According to Professor Frank Barry, scientific director of the Regenerative Medicine Institute at NUI Galway, "Using the patient's own stem cells we have been able to treat their diseased joints and relieve their suffering and burden of pain.”

Treating Arthritis with Stem Cells

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Aug 14, 2013 11:27:42 AM

Arthritis affects 44 million individuals in the US resulting in the need for approximately 700,000 knee-replacement and 100,000 hip replacement surgeries every year. Researchers at Stanford University have developed a technique to track the effectiveness of mesenchymal stem cells [the type of stem cells found in teeth] in repairing arthritic joints. Mesenchymal stem cells are capable of differentiating into bone and cartilage, as well as muscle, fat and tendon. The researchers expect to adapt the study for clinical trials in humans this fall.

Researchers Reverse Osteoarthritis Using the Regenerative Properties of Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Apr 13, 2012 12:19:45 PM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A recent study reported by Science News found that a small molecule called kartogenin aids mesenchymal stem cells in differentiating into cells that make up cartilage. The study found that damaged cartilage in the knee can now be regenerated, not only restoring cartilage in the joint but also reducing or eliminating the associated pain of osetoarthritis.
