Stroke-Induced Brain Damage Prevented by Stem Cells.

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Feb 17, 2015 8:35:58 AM

Stem cells have been found to prevent neurological damage to GCI stroke victims.

In a recently published study from the Hallym University College of Medicine, researchers have applied mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] to animal models afflicted with global cerebral ischemia [GCI] to successfully reduce the associated neuronal damage. When compared to those that received no treatment, animals that received MSCs displayed a significant decrease in cell death, inflammation to the brain, and disruption of the blood brain barrier.

Type 1 Diabetes Reversed by Integrating Mesenchymal Stem Cells.

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Feb 12, 2015 5:30:48 AM

MSCs and HCELL molecules track down islet cells and reverse inflammation.

According to a recently published study from the Brigham and Woman’s Hospital, mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] have the ability to reverse type I diabetes by suppressing the auto-immune attack of islet cells. Although the MSCs cannot be directly injected into the pancreas, the researchers utilized the surface adhesion molecule HCELL to hone the stem cells in on the inflamed islets, allowing them to normalize blood sugar levels without the use of insulin.

Atherosclerotic Lesions Prevented by MSCs

Posted by hunter@stemsave.com on Feb 10, 2015 5:23:51 AM

Stem cells were found to reduce plaque in patients with atherosclerosis.

According to new research from the National Yang-Ming University, mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] hold the ability to limit atherosclerotic plaque formation, thereby preventing the onset of harmful endothelial lesions. The research team, led by Shih-Chieh Hung, transplanted MSCs into animal models with atherosclerosis and observed significant reduction in plaque formation. They also saw an increase in blood vessel dilation, which prevents further plaque development, indicating good endothelial health.

Sniffing Out Parkinson’s Disease with Stem Cells

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Jan 29, 2015 9:36:21 AM

Stem Cells found in the nose produce neurons that may be able to treat neurodegenerative diseases.

German scientists at the University of Bielefeld and Dresden University of technology have produced neurons from inferior turbinate stem cells [ITSC], a cell type that is typically discarded during sinus surgery, as a potential treatment for Parkinson’s disease. After transplanting the ITSCs into an animal model suffering from Parkinson’s, the researchers observed full functional restoration and significant behavioral recovery in the subjects without any adverse side effects.

Lung Regeneration Made Possible through Stem Cells.

Posted by anna@stemsave.com on Jan 26, 2015 8:34:32 AM

Scientists have found a stem cell line that specializes in restoring lung tissue

Jackson Laboratory scientists have identified the adult lung stem cells p63+/Krt5+ as the specific cell line that specializes in lung regeneration. In an animal model, professors Frank McKeon, Ph.D. and Wa Xian, Ph.D. observed as the p63+/Krt5+, which typically mature into the lungs’ alveoli, responded to lung damage caused by the H1N1 influenza virus by migrating to the sites of inflammation and restoring the lost tissue.

Multiple Sclerosis Trial Exhibits Positive Results of Stem Cell Therapy.

Posted by barb@stemsave.com on Jan 23, 2015 6:14:37 AM

A five year phase II clinical trial has shown initial success in treating multiple sclerosis.

In a recent update of an ongoing five year clinical trial conducted by the Chicago Blood Cancer Institute, patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis have experienced suppression of disease-related inflammation as a result of hematopoietic stem cell transplantations. The stem cells have the ability to regulate the autoimmune attack on the central nervous system, and have provided 82.8% of the patients with two years thus far of event-free disease remission.

In with a BAM – Stem Cells Advance Bladder Regeneration

Posted by hunter@stemsave.com on Jan 6, 2015 4:56:01 AM

The bladder acellular matrix is a housing of connective tissue that provides structural support for the functional cells of the bladder

New research from McGill University has shown that the bladder acellular matrix [BAM], or the external structure of connective tissue and growth factors that house the cellular components of the bladder, can serve as a scaffolding unit for mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] to regenerate healthy bladder tissue. The stem cells receive growth factors from the BAM, which direct them to differentiate into new bladder cells that, when transplanted into an animal model, exhibit nearly 100% normal bladder capacity and function.

Muscular Dystrophy-Induced Heart Failure Averted by Stem Cells.

Posted by devin@stemsave.com on Jan 2, 2015 7:59:49 AM

Although duchenne muscle dystrophy affects the entire body, often the cause of death for DMD patients is heart failure.

Researchers led by Eduardo Marbón of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute have developed a method to prolong the lives of patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy [DMD] through the infusion of cardiac stem cells. The stem cells reverse the loss of cardiac muscle caused by the genetic disease, preventing heart failure that would otherwise limit a patient’s life expectancy to age 25.

Bone Regeneration Technique Stimulates Stem Cells with Magnetic Nanoparticles.

Posted by taylor@stemsave.com on Dec 28, 2014 10:55:40 AM

Remote controlled nanoparticles may allow stem cells to regenerate bone tissue

Medical researchers from Keele University and Nottingham University have integrated remote controlled magnetic nanoparticles to incite the differentiation of stem cells into new bone tissue for the treatment of bone diseases, disorders, and injuries. In pre-clinical trials, the nanoparticles were coated with proteins that stimulate the stem cells, and then delivered directly to the damaged tissue via an external magnetic field.

Feeling the Burn: Fat Loss Therapy Utilizes Stem Cells.

Posted by pamela@stemsave.com on Dec 22, 2014 10:07:47 AM

Scientists have identified two stimulants that induce stem cells to mature into brown fat cells instead of unhealthy white fat cells.

According to a recent study conducted by scientists at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, stem cells may hold the key to replacing the body’s unwanted storage of white fat cells with calorie-burning brown fat cells. The researchers studied the stem cells that typically mature into white fat cells, and, after screening the effects of 1000 compounds on the cells, they found two that stimulate the stem cells to differentiate into brown fat cells instead.
