Peripheral Artery Disease Treatment Utilizes Stem Cells

Posted by maxi@stemsave.com on Nov 12, 2014 9:34:00 AM

Scientists have devised a method of regenerating blood vessels by transplanting stem cells.

Researchers from the Indiana University School of Medicine have developed a potential therapy for peripheral artery disease by transplanting autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. In an animal model, the transplanted stem cells differentiated into new blood vessels, which then restored blood flow to damaged tissues in the body.

While the body has specialized cells to repair and regenerate blood vessels, these cells lose their capacity to propagate with age. Stem cells, however, can be stored while the patient is young to retain their proliferative abilities. The stem cells could then be injected into the afflicted tissue, which would jumpstart the regenerative process.

Due to their higher regenerative abilities, younger stem cells are preferred over older ones for medical therapies. One way to assure access to the enhanced regenerative abilities of your own stem cells is to preserve them while they are still young, so that they can be used later in life in emerging regenerative therapies. Today, preserving your own stem cells, also known as autologous stem cells, is simple and affordable for families.
