StemSave Sets Up Collection Center for 28th Annual Coat Drive

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Dec 1, 2016 1:21:42 PM

Each year, the need for coats and cold weather wear is great.  Once again, StemSave is joining the NYC Police Department, Time Warner, Toshiba, NBC, Health Plus, Vornado and other concerned organizations and corporate citizens to serve our community and neighbors.  StemSave is partnering up with the New York Cares organization for its 28th Annual Coat Drive to collect coats and outerwear from December 1st through December 31st.   If you are in the area please feel free to stop by StemSave’s corporate headquarters located at 526 W. 26th St, Suite #622  in NYC (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm) to donate any new or gently used coats and outerwear. Thank you all in advance!

Skin Tissue Produced From Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on Sep 15, 2016 8:47:08 PM

Scientists from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Japan have recently grown skin tissue from transformed stem cells. Their work demonstrated an advancement from previous efforts to grow skin in that the transplanted stem cells developed as integumentary tissue – the tissue between the outer and inner skin, which holds the functional properties of the skin, including sweat glands and hair follicles.

Glaucoma Treatment Advances With the Use of Stem Cells

Posted by davids@stemsave.com on Aug 5, 2016 2:36:24 PM

Researchers, led by Dr. Markus Kuehn of the University of Iowa, are developing a regenerative procedure utilizing stem cells to restore proper drainage for fluid-congested eyes at risk for glaucoma. The injection of stem cells into the eyes of mice with glaucoma led to the proliferation of cells within the trabecular meshwork, a patch of tissue in the eye that serves as a drain for the eyes to avoid fluid buildup.

Ponce de Leon Needed Only to Smile

Stem Cells may be the key to maintaining your youth as we age. Researchers at the University of Illinois revealed that injecting mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs - the same type of stem cells found in teeth] into the leg muscles of mice facilitated the repair and strengthening of muscles following exercise. Skeletal muscle decreases in mass and function as we age. Armed with a more nuanced understanding of how muscles respond to exercise, researchers are developing novel therapies utilizing MSCs to rejuvenate aged or damaged muscles in humans.

Printing Organs with Stem Cells

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Jul 15, 2016 4:01:27 PM

Researchers at the U.K’s University of Bristol’s School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine announced a new advancement in bio-printing. They developed a bio-ink that is comprised of stem cells and two polymers – one naturally occurring and the other artificial. The polymers provide structural support to the stem cells that can then be directed to differentiate into the appropriate tissue. The addition of the phase-change polymer component to the bio-ink allows the printed organ to quickly develop the structural integrity necessary to introduce cell nutrients to the stem cells.
