Stem Cells Used to Treat TBI

Posted by on Nov 10, 2016, 10:25:15 AM

stem-cell-therapy-los-angeles.jpg Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center, led by Dr. Charles Cox, are utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to treat traumatic brain injury (TBI). The results demonstrated that the stem cells reduced the body’s inflammatory response to the trauma and preserved brain tissue – a significant advancement from current therapies used to treat TBI. 1.7 million Americans sustain TBI annually and TBI is a contributing factor to a third of all injury related deaths.

 Capitalizing on over two decades of previously published research on neurological diseases and the advantages of using autologous stem cells in TBI therapies, Dr. Cox and his team, in a study involving 25 patients, demonstrated that following the transplantation of stem cells into the patient, there was structural preservation of critical regions correlating with functional outcomes and a reduction of certain cytokines that trigger inflammatory responses to TBI.

 As regenerative engineering progresses, we believe the best stem cells to use in emerging treatments will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
