Stem Cells Treat Rare Disorders

Posted by on Jul 31, 2019 3:27:00 PM

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic are using autologous (the patients’ own) stem cells to treat a rare congenital heart defect. For infants born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the first few months of life are a complicated battle that involves several reconstructive surgeries that repair the underdeveloped left portion of the heart and help the right side maintain the increased load. The infants are participating in a Phase I clinical trial after being diagnosed with the syndrome before birth. At birth, the researchers obtained the patients’ cord blood stem cells and cryopreserved them until the second reconstructive operation of the heart, which typically follows a few months after birth. The researchers injected the patients’ stem cells into the affected site of the heart to support and strengthen the weakened cardiac muscle in the area.

StemSave Scientific Advisor, Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, Spearheads Research Team Growing Replacement Bone From Stem Cells

Posted by on Jul 6, 2012 6:12:54 PM






A team led by Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, of Columbia University has successfully grown a variety of bone structures utilizing a scaffold infused with stem cells.

The team has grown more than 50 healthy bones from stem cells. The team is experimenting with a variety of scaffolding materials, including bone stripped of all cellular material as well as silk scaffolds developed by Tufts University. The scaffolding with the stem cells are housed in a bioreactor which nourishes and directs the stem cells to regenerate and differentiate into newbone. As the new bone develops, the scaffolding material dissolves, resulting in new, fully-functioning bone.

Join 'Cake Boss’' Lisa Valastro as She Discusses the Importance of Banking Your Children’s Stem Cells

Posted by on May 7, 2012 7:52:53 PM








After the birth of her youngest son Carlo, Lisa Valastro, wife of TLC's "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro, made the wise investment of banking the stem cells from Carlo’s cord blood and placenta in the event that he may need them for future medical treatment. Valastro previously banked the cord blood stem cells from each of her four children's umbilical cords, ensuring that they would each have access to the best possible match for stem cell therapies: their own stem cells.
