Bone Regeneration Technique Stimulates Stem Cells with Magnetic Nanoparticles.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Dec 28, 2014 10:55:40 AM

Remote controlled nanoparticles may allow stem cells to regenerate bone tissue

Medical researchers from Keele University and Nottingham University have integrated remote controlled magnetic nanoparticles to incite the differentiation of stem cells into new bone tissue for the treatment of bone diseases, disorders, and injuries. In pre-clinical trials, the nanoparticles were coated with proteins that stimulate the stem cells, and then delivered directly to the damaged tissue via an external magnetic field.

Gel-Like Polymers May Improve Stem Cell-Based Therapies.

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Oct 8, 2014 6:41:15 AM

Scientists are developing a polymeric gel to protect stem cells from trauma during transplant injections.

Complex chemical polymers are currently being developed by scientists at Stanford University to protect and support the proliferation of stem cells during spinal cord transplantation procedures. The gels are designed to provide padding for the cells during injection, while also varying in viscosity and the biochemical signals contained within to offer stem cells an optimal environment for differentiation.

Paralysis Treatment Utilizes Stem Cells

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on May 2, 2014 11:57:59 AM

Stem Cell transplants have been found to regenerate motor neurons to restore muscle capability after paralysis.

Professor Linda Greensmith and her team of researchers from University College London and King’s College London have utilized stem cells to return muscle function to patients paralyzed by nerve damage or spinal cord injury. In a paralyzed animal model, the scientists observed transplanted stem cells growing along the injured neurons to restore motor capability to disabled muscle. Blue light pulses were then used to control the newly restored muscle movement.

Motor Neuron Development Accelerated by New Stem Cell Technique

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Apr 18, 2014 11:01:17 AM

A new procedure in differentiating stem cells will accelerate advances in treating neurological diseases.

A team of researchers at the University of Illinois led by doctors Fei Wang, Qiuhao Qu, and JianJun Cheng, have developed a fast and efficient technique for differentiating stem cells into motor neurons. The researchers added critical signaling molecules and growth factors to the cells much earlier than previous methods, resulting in twice the amount of neurons derived from the cells in half the time.

Lower Back Pain Relieved by Mesenchymal Stem Cells [MSCs]

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on Mar 19, 2014 12:07:48 PM

MSC's injected into the spine caused a decrease in back pain and the need for invasive treatment.

In a recent Phase II clinical study, researchers report that mesenchymal stem cells were successful in relieving chronic lower back pain. The scientists injected MSCs directly into the degenerating vertebral disks of patients suffering from lower back pain, resulting in an overall reduction in the mean pain score, improved function for at least 12 months, and a reduced need for further surgical and non-surgical treatment interventions.

Spinal Cord Injury Stem Cell Treatment Enters Clinical Trials.

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Mar 7, 2014 9:41:22 AM


A new treatment aims to treat spinal cord injuries by injecting stem cells into the spinal cord.

A medical team from the University of Calgary is now recruiting candidates to participate in the phase one clinical trial for a new stem cell therapy that aims to treat spinal cord injuries. The researchers plan to inject stem cells into the spinal cord two sites above and two sites below the point of injury to recreate lost or damaged tissue.
