Stem Cells Showing Promising Results for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Specifically, the umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells were able to inhibit the proliferation of fibrolast-like synoviocytes cells from rheumatoid arthritis patients. These fibroblast-like synoviocytes are critical components of rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, the umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells reduced levels of cells that promote inflammation and increase the levels of those that fight inflammation. Rheumatoid…

Stem Cells Improving Neurological Function Following TBI

Researchers have recently shown how a specific type of stem cell, called umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells, can improve the neurological function of patients who have experienced traumatic brain injury (TBI). When TBI occurs, the trauma to the head leads the immune system to send cells to the area of injury. The resulting swelling often…

How Stem Cells Provide Regenerative Therapy for Diabetes

Researchers described a number of ways that stem cells may be able to help diabetes patients in an article published in the journal Pancreas. According to the researchers, stem cells can be particularly helpful for the development of regenerative therapies, which, instead of treating the disease through drugs or interventions that aim to improve the…

How Stem Cells Could Work With Bone Marrow Cells to Treat Diabetes

Diabetic patients from deficiencies in insulin, a hormone that is critical for regulating blood sugar levels. Researchers have recently shown how combining mesenchymal stem cells with bone marrow cells can induce the regeneration of cells that secrete insulin and thereby restore normal levels of blood sugar and blood insulin. The insulin deficiency that occurs in…

Neural Stem Cells Treating Parkinson’s Disease

Researchers have now shown that stem cells that are genetically modified may be able to help in Parkinson’s disease by replacing the cells that are damaged in the disease. Their research was recently published in the journal CNS and Neurological Disorders – Drug Targets. Parkinson’s disease affects the stratum, a specific part of the brain…
