Bone Regeneration Made Possible With Stem Cells

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Mar 8, 2015 5:20:22 AM

Epibone creates precisely measured scaffolding for stem cells to recreate damaged bone.

The New York-based startup Epibone intends to begin human testing on a procedure that will utilize stem cells to regenerate living bone tissue. The researchers, originally from Columbia University, will apply autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to nanofiber scaffolding of the desired size and shape and direct the stem cells to differentiate into a physical and genetic replica of the patient’s own bone.

Osteoarthritis Stem Cell Treatment in Clinical Trial

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Sep 16, 2014 6:55:33 AM

The transplantation of stem cells into areas affected by osteoarthritis allow lost cartilage tissue to regenerate.

In recent clinical trials, researchers at the National University of Ireland Galway have successfully utilized adult stem cells to treat patients with osteoarthritis. The treatment involves recovering the patients’ own [autologous] stem cells and then injecting the stem cells into cartilage to stimulate the regeneration of lost tissue.

Hip Replacement Procedure Utilizes Autologous Stem Cells.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Jun 12, 2014 9:23:21 AM

Scientists have utilized stem cells to aid in artificial hip replacement.

Doctors and Scientist at the Southampton General Hospital have successfully completed a hip transplant by using a titanium socket and a bone scaffold loaded with skeletal stem cells. The team, led by orthopedic surgeon Douglas Dunlap, 3D printed the titanium implant, and then added the bone graft filled with stem cells to the pelvis to encourage bone regrowth behind and around the metal replacement.

Doctors Recommend Banking Stem Cells Following Hip Replacement Surgery

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Mar 18, 2014 12:32:07 PM

A source of stem cells has been discovered in the discarded tissue resulting from hip surgery.

Researchers from the UNSW Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, Ludwig Maximilians University, Case Western Reserve University, and the Cleveland Clinic have identified a source of autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells, called periosteum-derived stem cells [PDSC], which reside in the discarded tissue resulting from hip replacement surgery.

Treating Arthritis with Stem Cells

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Aug 14, 2013 11:27:42 AM

Arthritis affects 44 million individuals in the US resulting in the need for approximately 700,000 knee-replacement and 100,000 hip replacement surgeries every year. Researchers at Stanford University have developed a technique to track the effectiveness of mesenchymal stem cells [the type of stem cells found in teeth] in repairing arthritic joints. Mesenchymal stem cells are capable of differentiating into bone and cartilage, as well as muscle, fat and tendon. The researchers expect to adapt the study for clinical trials in humans this fall.
