Silk Scaffold Supplies Salivary Gland Stem Cell Solution

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Aug 19, 2015 11:31:58 AM

 

Purified silk strands provided the scaffolding for a matrix of rat salivary cell glands developed from stem cells, according to new research from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Salivary stem cells have historically been difficult to grow in culture while retaining their function. Silk was selected as the cell scaffolding because it is organic (biodegradable), flexible, porous – providing amply access to oxygen – and does not cause inflammation.

Meniscus Regenerative Therapy Engages Patient’s Own Stem Cells.

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on May 19, 2015 11:55:42 AM

In a newly published article by the Wall Street Journal, a team of Columbia and Cornell researchers led by Dr. Jeremy Mao [a member of StemSave’s Scientific Advisory Council] has developed a potential method to treat patients with torn menisci.  The method involves 3D-printing a biodegradable scaffold of the meniscus, infusing it with growth factors, and implanting it into the knee.  Once in the patient’s body, the growth factors should attract autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to generate a new, natural meniscus.
