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.

Game, Set, Match: Tennis Elbow Gets Aced by Stem Cell Therapy

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Oct 30, 2014 10:55:51 AM

Tennis elbow treatment reduces inflammation with stem cells.

In a new pilot study at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London, researchers will utilize stem cells to promote the healing of painful tendon injuries such as tennis elbow. Initial studies suggest that, upon transplantation, the stem cells release growth factors to the point of injury, which induce the growth of new tendon tissue while reducing scar tissue to recover movement and flexibility.

New York Times: The Eruption of Stem Cell Therapies.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Sep 16, 2014 11:04:35 AM

Mr. Edgar Irastorza is one of thousands of people already benefiting from the progression of stem cell based therapies.

As reported on the front page of the New York Times Science section, clinical applications of stem cell based therapies are accelerating at a rate that will revolutionize the medical field in a matter of years. In the United States alone, there are currently over 4000 therapies in clinical trials for the treatment of heart disease, blindness, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, H.I.V., and other diseases, injuries, and traumas.

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.

Osteoarthritis Treatment Utilizes Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on May 8, 2014 9:17:56 AM

Researchers have found a way to use a patient's own stem cells to ease the pain of osteoarthritis.

In a recent Phase 1 Clinical Trial, a team of researchers at the National University of Ireland, Galway, were successful in developing a treatment for osteoarthritis that utilizes autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. According to Professor Frank Barry, scientific director of the Regenerative Medicine Institute at NUI Galway, "Using the patient's own stem cells we have been able to treat their diseased joints and relieve their suffering and burden of pain.”

Bone Reconstruction Technique Utilizes Autologous Stem Cells

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Feb 28, 2014 9:08:10 AM

Stem cells are allowing doctors to personalize treatments to repair damaged or diseased bone.

A team of medical researchers at Saint Luc University Clinic have developed a method of repairing bones utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. The process involves harvesting the stem cells from the patient, differentiating the stem cells in-vitro to grow bone, pairing the cells with a scaffolding matrix and then molding the material to repair damaged or diseased bone within the patient.

Dr. Jeremy Mao Discusses Joint Regeneration Using Stem Cells

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Oct 28, 2013 7:50:58 AM

In a recently aired video on Reuters News, Dr. Jeremy Mao, of Columbia University, and Chief Scientific Adviser to StemSave, discusses his use of scaffolding and stem cells to rebuild functioning joints in rabbits. An application to begin clinical [human] trials has been filed with the FDA. Dr. Mao believes that stem cell regeneration will be the answer for hundreds of thousands of patients who, each year, undergo joint replacement. He anticipates a time, in the very near future, when patients will grow their own new knee or hip joints utilizing their own stem cells and the technique he has developed.

Researchers Utilize Mesenchymal Stem Cells [MCS] to Generate Cartilage Formation

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Jun 17, 2013 9:11:40 AM

Knee Cartilage

Cartilage injuries can range from small lesions, such as those of athletes, to chronic injuries, such as cartilage degradation. Cartilage injuries, which are difficult to repair and have limited options for surgery, and usually results in a drastic affect on quality of life of afflicted individuals. In addition, the health, number and vitality of cartilage cells diminish with age.
