Stem Cell Acupuncture

Posted by davids@stemsave.com on Feb 20, 2017 9:00:00 AM

 

Indiana University’s School of Medicine, spearheading the efforts of over forty researchers in the U.S. and South Korea, has determined that electro acupuncture can be utilized to induce the release of reparative mesenchymal stem cells, which have healing effects when released into the bloodstream. The electric current that is passed through during acupuncture hastens the communication between the stimulus point on the body and the neurons in the spinal cord. This activates the hypothalamus and directs stem cells to an area of injury or stress, promoting collagen production and tendon repair, both linked to expedited healing times.

MS Treatment Using Stem Cells

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Jan 17, 2017 4:00:00 PM

Researchers from Imperial College London, led by Dr. Paolo Muraro, have refined a stem cell treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS); using the patient’s own stem cells to reset the immune system and “freeze” the disease. MS is a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers thereby causing communication disruptions between the brain and the rest of the body. The treatment works by first recovering healthy stem cells from the patient and then, using high-dose chemotherapy to kill the remaining damaged immune cells. Reintroducing the recovered stem cells into the patient’s body reboots the immune system and halts the disease.

Breathing Easier With Stem Cells

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Jan 11, 2017 12:41:00 PM

A research team from the Stem Cell Engineering Center of the Translational Chinese Medicine has developed a method for repairing lungs afflicted with interstitial fibrosis utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. The team recovered stem cells from the patient, cultured them in-vitro [outside the body] and then reintroduced them into the patient to repair the damaged lung tissue.  The use of the patient’s own stem cells virtually eliminated the likelihood the patient would reject the treatment.

Natural Tooth Repair Using Stem Cells

Posted by davids@stemsave.com on Dec 21, 2016 5:00:00 PM

A team of researchers from the Dental Institute at King’s College London has developed a natural approach to repair damaged teeth. Current methods include fillings and cement, which disrupt the normal mineral level of the tooth and can lead to infection.  The new approach utilizes a collagen sponge infused with glycogen synthase kinase (GSK-3) to stimulate the stem cells in the pulp of the tooth to regenerate dentin and repair the tooth naturally.  The collagen sponge degrades over time and is replaced by the naturally regenerated dentin. Lead author of the study, Professor Paul Sharpe, from King's College London states, "The simplicity of our approach makes it ideal as a clinical dental product for the natural treatment of large cavities, by providing both pulp protection and restoring dentine.”

CTE Treatment Utilizing Stem Cells

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Nov 23, 2016 2:59:32 PM

Doctors Mark Foglietti and Michael Kellis of the Ohio Stem Cell Treatment Center are developing a treatment utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to treat Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a degenerative disease that effects people who have been subjected to repeated blows to the head – such as NFL players – especially those whom experienced multiple concussions.

Stem Cells Used to Treat TBI

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Nov 10, 2016 10:25:15 AM

 Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center, led by Dr. Charles Cox, are utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to treat traumatic brain injury (TBI). The results demonstrated that the stem cells reduced the body’s inflammatory response to the trauma and preserved brain tissue – a significant advancement from current therapies used to treat TBI. 1.7 million Americans sustain TBI annually and TBI is a contributing factor to a third of all injury related deaths.

Stem Cells Hold Keys for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Nov 4, 2016 5:46:05 PM

Researchers from the University of Pittsburg School of Medicine are utilizing mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] to develop a treatment for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). MSCs possess valuable properties that make them particularly suitable for potential treatments – chief amongst them are; their plasticity [ability to differentiate into a particular tissue type], their anti-inflammatory capabilities and, their immunomodulatory properties. Currently, there are five Phase 1 clinical trials registered utilizing MSCs to treat IPF.

Parkinson’s Disease Battlefront Advances With New Stem Cell Strategy

Posted by davids@stemsave.com on Oct 24, 2016 5:04:07 PM

Dr. Leo Behie, of the University of Calgary, in collaboration with Dr. António Salgado and Dr. Nuno Sousa of Portugal, has developed a novel stem cell based method to treat Parkinson’s disease. The new strategy utilizes autologous [the patient’s own] mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] thereby eliminating the need for a donor and immunosuppressant drugs that compromise the body’s immune system.

TMJ Repair Made With Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Oct 13, 2016 3:51:20 PM

Dr. Mildred C. Embree and her team at the Columbia College of Dental Medicine have discovered stem cells that can facilitate the growth of cartilage and repair damaged joints. The fibrocartilage found in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in the jaw bone does not readily regrow or heal itself – hence, researchers worked to manipulate the stem cells that reside in the TMJ to regenerate cartilage and repair the joint.
