Stem cell application for osteoarthritis in the knee joint: A minireview

Knee osteoarthritis is a chronic, indolent disease that will affect an ever increasing number of patients, especially the elderly and the obese. It is characterized by degeneration of the cartilage substance inside the knee which leads to pain, stiffness and tenderness. By some estimations in 2030, only in the United States, this medical condition will burden 67 million people. While …

Clinical Trial Using Stem Cells for Rotator Cuff Tears Approved by FDA

Two clinical trials run by Sanford Health have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to use fat stem cells from the abdomen to heal rotator cuff tears. The trials are small so far, but researchers hope to expand them to bigger trials in the future. The team performed an hourlong procedure to remove fat from the abdomen, …

Surgery Using Stem Cells Help Paralyzed Rat Walk Again

There are an estimated 17,000 spinal cord injuries in the United States alone every year. A severed spinal cord in a human has never before been completely healed, but science is working in that direction as researchers from Tel Aviv University and Technion have healed the severed spinal cord of a rat using stem cells. Researchers explained that the stem …

How Stem Cells Are Working to Change Diabetes Treatments

Worldwide, more than 415 million people are living with diabetes. In 2012, scientists from the University of British Columbia were able to reverse diabetes in mice using stem cell transplants. Since then, stem cell therapy has been aggressively studied for its use in the treatment of and, ultimately, cure for diabetes. In clinical trials all over the country, scientists, researchers …

Treating Autoimmune Diseases With Stem Cell Therapy

When the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells, the results can be debilitating. This is what life is like for those with autoimmune diseases. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases, and most treatments focus on controlling the symptoms, not healing. New treatments using stem cells are now being clinically studied at stem cell therapy practices around …

New Research Shows Stem Cells Could Help Those With Chronic Asthma

Researchers from Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute have tested a new stem cell treatment developed by Cynata Therapeutics that could help patients with chronic asthma. The study was published in the journal FASEB and reported that mesenchymal stem cells, when delivered intranasally, could reduce inflammation, normalize airway fibrosis (scarring of the lungs), reverse the signs of airway remodeling and normalize airway …
