Banking on Baby Teeth

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Jul 11, 2016 2:00:00 PM

Author Kali Sakai, reports on banking stem cells from teeth in Parent Map. The daughter of a dentist, Sakai learned about teeth, however she was unaware of the stem cells inside teeth. As Sakai states, “It blew my mind to think that my child’s baby tooth could hold the key to a life-saving treatment in her adulthood”.

Spinal Cord Injury Treatment From Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on Jul 8, 2016 4:30:00 PM

Researchers at the Sri Ramachandra University (SRU) in Chennai have differentiated stem cells from human gum [gingival] tissue into neurons. Following their success, Dr. R. Suresh and research scholars S. Rajasekharan and M. G. Dinesh hope to develop methodologies to utilize the differentiated nerve cells to treat spinal cord injuries.

Dr. Arnold Caplan Ph.D and Dr. Irina Kerkis Ph.D Publish Further Research on the Proliferative and Plastic Properties of Dental Pulp Stem Cells

A research article recently published by Dr. Arnold Caplan Ph.D, and Dr. Irina Kerkis Ph.D examines the proliferative capabilities and plasticity of stem cells found in both baby teeth (DTSC) and adult wisdom teeth( DPSC).

By examining the origin and development of both types of teeth, the researchers found that both baby and wisdom teeth are highly proliferative and plastic, making them conducive to cryo-preservation and future harvesting. The article notes that stem cells derived from baby teeth have particular proliferative capacity because of the high concentration of stem cells in young teeth.
