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.

Atherosclerotic Lesions Prevented by MSCs

Posted by hunter@stemsave.com on Feb 10, 2015 5:23:51 AM

Stem cells were found to reduce plaque in patients with atherosclerosis.

According to new research from the National Yang-Ming University, mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] hold the ability to limit atherosclerotic plaque formation, thereby preventing the onset of harmful endothelial lesions. The research team, led by Shih-Chieh Hung, transplanted MSCs into animal models with atherosclerosis and observed significant reduction in plaque formation. They also saw an increase in blood vessel dilation, which prevents further plaque development, indicating good endothelial health.

Lupus Therapy Incorporates Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Oct 10, 2014 12:14:09 PM

Beijing researchers are capitalizing on the abilities of mesenchymal stem cells to reduce inflammation and promote cell growth to combat systemic lupus erythematosus.

In a recent clinical study conducted in Beijing, researchers are testing a treatment for patients suffering from systemic lupus erythematosus by administering autologous [the patient’s own] mesenchymal stem cells. The researchers aim to capitalize on the unique abilities of MSCs to not only differentiate into a multitude of different cell types, but to reduce the autoimmune attack in patients affected by lupus as well.

Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Incorporates Stem Cells in Clinical Trial

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Sep 30, 2014 6:23:05 AM

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy has been deemed safe for patients suffering from multiple sclerosis.

A recent clinical trial conducted by the University of Genoa has determined that mesenchymal stem cell therapy to treat multiple sclerosis is indeed safe to perform on humans. 27 MS patients completed the study, which comprised an injection of the patient’s own [autologous] mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] to reduce excessive inflammation caused by the patients’ own immune systems. None of the patients suffered any side effects from the injection.

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.

Stem Cells Utilized to Regulate Extreme Inflammation in Limb Injuries.

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Jun 3, 2014 9:51:59 AM

Stem cells are being used to reduce extreme inflammation to alleviate strain on the body's healing process.

Immunologists at the Medical College of Georgia and College of Dental Medicine a Georgia Regents University have developed a method of utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to treat Ischemia Reperfusion Injury, a condition in which excessive blood flow to an injury results in severe inflammation and hindered recovery. The stem cells function with a chemical called indoleomine 2,3 Dioxygenase, or IDO, which can regulate the immune response without completely disabling it, allowing the healing process to ensue normally.

Leg Injuries Healed With Patient’s Stem Cell Therapy.

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on May 10, 2014 8:08:53 AM

A new stem cell therapy allows patients to regrow leg muscle after traumatic injuries.

A research team led by Stephen Badylak at the University of Pittsburgh has used the patient’s own stem cells to help them recover from injuries in which over 50% of their leg muscle was lost. First, they implanted a biological scaffold into the wound. Then, the patients underwent aggressive physical therapy, which directed the recruitment of stem cells to the site of injury to rebuild properly aligned muscle tissue. By the end of the treatment, patients exhibited muscle regrowth and at least a 20% increase in leg strength.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells [MSC] Promote Nerve Regeneration

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Oct 24, 2013 7:05:22 AM

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery find that mesenchymal stem cells [the type of stem cells found in teeth] promoted nerve regeneration in animal models [in this case - rodents] with paralyzing leg injuries. According to the researchers, "Mesenchymal stem cells may be a promising add-on therapy to help damaged nerves regenerate.” The study found that the rodents treated with their own stem cells responded best to the treatment. Those treated with donated cells from dissimilar rodent types – a situation most similar to human transplants – rejected their new limbs.
