Stem Cell’s Regenerative Capabilities Sustained With Proteins

Posted by 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.

Stem Cell Hydrogel Used in Dental Implants

Posted by on Aug 7, 2015 3:22:30 PM

Alireza Moshaverinia, a USC dental researcher, recently received the 2015 IADR Innovation in Oral Care Award for his groundbreaking research into the treatment of peri-implantitis, a common, destructive inflammatory complication in dental implant patients. As many as two in five implant patients experience peri-implantitis and related bone and tissue loss. Moshaverinia developed an injectable adhesive hydrogel which included mesenchymal stem cells and anti-inflammatory/antimicrobial properties.
