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.

Throughout transplantation, a patient’s valuable stem cells are often vulnerable to trauma during injection or denaturation by the body’s own chemicals, hindering the efficiency of the procedure. Polymers that not only protect the stem cells but direct them towards the ideal pathway would increase the efficacy of treatments of spinal cord injuries and beyond to improve the health of patients.

As personalized regenerative medicine advances, autologous stem cells will become an invaluable resource to families and individuals who seek to ensure that they will have access to the best in medical care should the need for it arise. One of the most convenient and affordable sources for recovering and banking your own stem cells is dental stem cells.
