Stem Cell’s Regenerative Capabilities Sustained With Proteins

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Feb 7, 2017 12:00:00 AM

 

 

Wan-Ju Li and Tsung-Lin Tsai, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have developed a more efficient method to regrow large masses of bone. Using the proteins lipocalin-2 and prolactin, the researchers were able to slow and neutralize senescence, a naturally occurring process that negatively impacts the ability of stem cells to divide and grow, thereby preserving the regenerative capabilities of the mesenchymal stem cells and facilitating bone growth. The combination of these two proteins in culture provides sustenance for the stem cells to remain in prime condition until they are ready to be implanted into the patient.

Improving the Efficiency of Stem Cell Transplants

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Apr 1, 2016 1:52:00 PM

A new method of stem cell harvesting was developed by a group of Australian researchers. The technique is less invasive than current methods and reduces unwanted side effects. Existing harvesting procedures are lengthy and require injections of growth factors to boost stem cell numbers. Growth factors can cause unpleasant side effects like bone pain and spleen enlargement for some patients while other patients don’t respond well impacting stem cell recovery.

Multiple Sclerosis Treatment “Resets” Immune System through Stem Cell Transplantation.

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on Apr 4, 2015 11:36:00 AM

In a recently published study, a team of researchers led by Dr. Giovanni Mancardi from the University of Genoa conducted a phase II clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of conventional multiple sclerosis [MS] therapy to intravenous stem cell transplantation.  Throughout the four year trial, the team found that, in addition to significantly decreasing disease progression and brain damage compared to MS drug mitoxantrone [MTX], the transplanted stem cells had migrated into the patients’ bone marrow and stimulated the generation of new, non-harmful immune cells, essentially resetting the immune system.
