Dental Stem Cells Used to Study Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Dec 2, 2013 8:52:39 PM

Stem Cells from teeth are integral in studying neuropsychiatric disorders.

In a recent study supported by the National Institutes of Health, stem cells extracted from baby teeth were differentiated into neural cells. The success of the study demonstrates that teeth provide a non-invasive and accessible means for researchers to obtain and grow patient specific neural tissue to study autism spectrum disorders [ASD] and other neurological disorders. This is in contrast to the recovery of stem cells from other sources – such as a skin biopsy, that are both invasive, more costly and less advantageous in the study of neural related disorders.

Scientists at the University of Illinois have used a 3D-printer to create a bioresorbable airway splint that was used in a transplant to treat tracheobronchomalacia in a young boy whose prognosis prior to the transplant was fatal. Dr. Matthew Wheeler, a professor at the University of Illinois and a member of the Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering research team at the Institute for Genomic Biology hopes to add stem cells to the splint in order to accelerate healing.

Creating Organs With Stem Cells - World’s First Clinical Trial of Stem Cell Generated Voice Box Announced

Posted by Kelsey StemSave on May 28, 2013 11:25:41 AM

The world of regenerative medicine is advancing rapidly, as more complex organs are being grown and transplanted. Recently, researchers, supported by the Biomedical Research Center at the University College London Hospitals, have been awarded the funding to conduct the first-ever clinical trial of a stem cell generated voice box transplant. The creation of a voice box represents the evolution of the successful creation and transplantation of an artificial trachea as researchers and scientist develop the capability of growing ever more complex organs.

Scaffolding Advances to Lead to Better Stem Cell Treatments

Posted by hunter@stemsave.com on Mar 6, 2013 1:11:33 PM

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego and the University of Sheffield have worked together to find a way to improve stem cell scaffolding through sticky spots scattered throughout the extra-cellular matrix. The improvement in scaffolding will lead to better stem cell treatments in many areas. Right now, scaffolds are being used in tandem with stem cells to grow new tracheas, teeth, cartilage, organs and much more.
