Feeling the Burn: Fat Loss Therapy Utilizes Stem Cells.

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Dec 22, 2014 10:07:47 AM

Scientists have identified two stimulants that induce stem cells to mature into brown fat cells instead of unhealthy white fat cells.

According to a recent study conducted by scientists at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, stem cells may hold the key to replacing the body’s unwanted storage of white fat cells with calorie-burning brown fat cells. The researchers studied the stem cells that typically mature into white fat cells, and, after screening the effects of 1000 compounds on the cells, they found two that stimulate the stem cells to differentiate into brown fat cells instead.

Listen to Your Gut - “Mini-Stomachs” Built In-Vitro from Stem Cells.

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Dec 19, 2014 10:29:32 AM

Scientists have engineered cellular clusters that mimic the functions of the stomach.

Scientists at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Centre have induced adult stem cells to differentiate into small clusters of gastric tissue that replicate the functions of the human stomach. The lab-made structures, known as “mini-stomachs”, were created by replicating the chemical pathways of early stage stomach development of stem cells in a petri dish.

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.

Growing Organs With Your Own Stem Cells

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Apr 25, 2014 8:30:45 AM

A research team led by Doctor Alexander Seifalian at University College London is currently creating custom lab-grown organs and body parts for patients utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. The scientists have engineered a polymer material that they mold into the shape of an organ in need, infuse with the patient’s stem cells, and then transplant back onto the patient’s body.

Clinical Trial for Stem Cell Cancer Treatment Approved

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Jun 26, 2013 12:19:48 PM

Mesenchymal stem cells

Apceth, a leader in the development of stem cell treatments, has won approval for a Phase I/II multicenter clinical trial evaluating an autologous mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy for gastrointestinal cancer. The treatment involves the utilization of the patient’s own stem cells to combat and destroy cancerous cells and is designed to enable highly localized treatments.
