Why We Do What We Do.

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Feb 2, 2016 2:20:11 PM

A recent article in the NY Times served to highlight the progress the medical community is making in combating genetic disorders.

The development of Crispr-Cas9 gene editing technology is profoundly altering the way the medical community is approaching the treatment of genetic disorders.  By enhancing accuracy and simplifying the process for the removal and insertion of specific genes in the DNA sequence, Crispr-Cas9 has brought gene therapy back to the forefront of research in the treatment of genetic disorders.To no surprise, one of the key components of this treatment approach are stem cells.

Stem Cell Culturing - Improving Safety and Predictability

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Jan 1, 2016 2:49:00 PM

The therapeutic efficacy of mesenchymal stem cell therapy has been extensively demonstrated and studied, leading to promising successes. Current applications include: immunosuppression of T-cells, the regeneration of blood vessels, assisting in skin wound healing, and suppressing chronic airway inflammation in asthma cases. However, when MSCs are being prepared for therapeutic application, they are often cultured in fetal bovine serum—which may result in  unknown biochemical effects, which can lead to inconsistent outcomes. Now, a team of researchers from Singapore has developed a serum-free cell culture, which supports cellular growth, enhances consistency and increases the potential for greater efficacy in mesenchymal stem cell therapy.

Stem Cell Treatments Go Pro

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Nov 11, 2015 2:45:00 PM

The world of professional sports is once again at the leading edge of a paradigm shift in medical treatments.  This time it is stem cell based regenerative treatments to repair sports injuries that might otherwise have ended high-profile careers. While the treatments are currently being applied to elite athletes, expect them to become more common place and available to the general public as medical practitioners and researchers learn more and fine tune these emerging stem cell based  tissue related repair protocols.

Printing Your Own Stem Cells

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Oct 28, 2015 2:35:00 PM

RoosterBio Inc has developed a Ready-to-Print (RTP) stem cell 3D bioprinter. This advancement in tissue engineering removes weeks from the current cellular bioprinting processes. This RTP provides significant quantities of high quality human mesenchymal stem cells (MCSs), which simplifies and accelerates the most complex and labor intensive aspects of bioprinting.

Hearing Through Your Nose

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Aug 24, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Scientists in Australia have discovered that mesenchymal stem cells [derived from nasal mucosa] may have the potential to preserve hearing among individuals whose hearing loss began in infancy or in early life. Such hearing loss carries broad implications for growth and development: The loss of sensory cells in the cochlea can lead to substantial language and cognitive delays. The researchers believe the injected mesenchymal stem cells induce local, specialized stem cells to function properly, repair tissue damage and prevent further deterioration. In the study, the animals that received the stem cells showed evidence of improved hearing, with hearing thresholds that were far lower and more sensitive than untreated controls.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration Treated With Stem Cells.

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Jun 5, 2015 2:36:01 PM

 

New research from the Eye Program at the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute demonstrates how a single injection of adult human stem cells can preserve eyesight in an animal suffering from Age-Related Macular Degeneration [AMD] for the equivalent of 16 years.  Upon injection, the stem cells began to recruit other healthy cells towards the retina to form a protective layer, which prevented further macular degeneration.

TIME: This Baby Could Live To Be 142 Years Old

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Apr 25, 2015 10:00:00 AM

According to a recent issue of Time Magazine, children born today could to live to be 142 years old.  Significant advancements in health care, such as regenerative medicine and stem cell therapies, will clearly be a foundational element upon which this projection is brought into fruition.   Maintaining the individual’s health will be critical to addressing increasing lifespans and to insure that an extended life span is both fruitful and productive.  To ensure that families have access to  emerging regenerative treatments that will make it possible  to reach this potential longevity, children’s autologous stem cells can be conveniently and affordably recovered and cryo-preserved during routine dental procedures.. To learn more about how to bank dental stem cells for use in future therapies and treatments, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.

Healthy Lifestyle, Healthy Stem Cells – The Link between Stress and Stem Cell Efficiency.

Posted by artgreco@stemsave.com on Apr 10, 2015 11:07:00 AM

In a recently published article, scientists from the German Cancer Research Center [DKFZ] have detailed the risks of stress-induced stem cell activation to cause DNA damage. Stressful events within the body drive adult stem cells into high energy states of rapid cell division and DNA synthesis to produce blood or repair damaged tissue. But since the transition from dormancy to executing these complicated functions is so abrupt, DNA is more likely to be damaged, resulting in cell death or harmful mutations.
