Dental Stem Cells Used in Parkinson’s Treatment

Posted by davids@stemsave.com on Feb 4, 2019 11:08:00 AM

download-14Researchers are utilizing vesicles secreted from dental stem cells to treat Parkinson’s Disease (PD). The study utilized these vesicles secreted by stem cells, as they are small and can easily cross the blood-brain barrier to deliver a treatment to the parts of the brain affected by PD. Parkinson’s is a neuro-degenerative disorder that affects the part of the brain that produces a neurotransmitter called dopamine, with symptoms expressing themselves as tremors and limb rigidity, among others. This study demonstrated, in an animal model, that intranasal administration of dental stem cell vesicles had a therapeutic effect by regulating the expression of proteins and preventing dopaminergic neuron death. The results showed a decrease in PD tremors and showed no adverse neurological effects over the progression of the study.

This was the first time researchers demonstrated the extensive anti-inflammatory, regenerative and therapeutic effects of dental pulp stem cells in a PD model. The results of this study will pave the way for future application of dental pulp stem cells to treat other neurological disorders. By banking their stem cells, patients can ensure they have their own young, plentiful and active cells to use as regenerative treatments emerge.

To learn more about stem cells, and how families can bank their own valuable stem cells by recovering the very powerful dental pulp stem cells during routine dental procedures; such as wisdom teeth extractions or the during the loss of baby teeth, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
