Scientists Discover New Way to Improve Stem Cell Therapy

A specific type of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells has shown significant promise for therapeutics against a host of diseases, and now scientists have found that they can improve the therapeutic impact of these stem cells through something called hypoxia preconditioning. They have published their findings in a journal called Cell Death and Disease….

Study Shows Stem Cells Helping with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)

Research has pointed strongly toward autologous adipose tissue-derived mesencymal stem cells (AdMSC‘s) as a treatment option for a number of neurological diseases. There is growing evidence that these cells can successfully differentiate into neurons in the brain, thereby protecting the brain against certain diseases of the central nervous system. Adipose tissue is particularly attractive when…

Treating Brain Disorders with Stem Cells

Scientists have identified a new way to treat disorders of the brain using stem cells. Their proposed technique is particularly promising because of the ability of stem cells to cross the blood brain barrier, a barrier that has posed challenges for other drug candidates. A recent review published by Rutgers University’s Pranela Rameshwar and colleagues…

Stem Cells Preventing Cognitive Decline in Alzheimer’s Disease

More research recently published in Brain Research titled “Intravenous transplantation of bone marrow-derived mono-nuclear cells prevents memory impairment in transgenic mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease.” shows how stem cell therapy may be a promising technique for preventing the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Because of the potential for stem cell therapy to help in neurological…

Long Term Study Shows Stem Cell Transplantation Helping Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

At 6 months post-treatment, neurological improvement or stabilization was observed from all (99) patients in the study except one. In their recently published study, Long-term outcomes of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation with reduced-intensity conditioning in multiple sclerosis: physician’s and patient’s perspectives, published in the Annals of Hematology Journal, Shevchenko et al. describe the effects…
