Bubble Boy Gene Therapy Utilizes Stem Cells

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Jan 8, 2016 1:31:00 PM

Scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases have developed a gene therapy utilizing stem cells, which restores immunity to patients with SCID-X1, also referred to as “Bubble Boy” disease. This genetic disorder prevents immune cells from developing properly, leaving patients prone to potentially fatal infections.

Osteoporosis Reversed Using Stem Cells

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Jul 27, 2015 2:45:25 PM

For over 10 million Americans, osteoporosis presents a chronic, degenerative, and complex problem, with few current therapeutic options to promote bone growth.  A team of researchers from Loma Linda University and the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center in California have reversed the bone-degrading disease of osteoporosis in an animal model using hematopoietic stem cells [HSCs]. The research offers yet another development in our current understanding and capability for practical application in the stem cell field. Now, after having identified specific growth factors related to bone growth and proliferation, stem cell therapy is thought to holds great promise in reversing bone weakness and ultimately, morbidity and mortality.
