Increasing the Safety of Stem Cell Interventions for Cancer

A recent study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, demonstrates that the repeated infusion of mesenchymal stem cells could improve the safety of certain type of stem cell cancer therapies. Specifically, this approach could reduce dangerous graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) symptoms in patients who have undergone a certain type of stem cell transplantation, known as…

Nitric Oxide Helping Patients with Hypertension & Pre-Hypertension

Research has long shown that nitric oxide regulates the cardiovascular system. The molecule naturally occurs within cells and organs of the body but quickly degrades. Physicians and scientists have therefore suggested that supplementing patients with cardiovascular issues with nitric oxide could be beneficial. Recently, studies have shown that this type of nitric oxide supplementation does…

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells Ability to Restore Damaged Ovaries

One of the several unfortunate side effects of chemotherapy, which is often used to combat cancer, is damage to the ovaries. Researchers have recently shown that the use of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells provides one potentially promising way to treat the ovaries after the damage has occurred. Depending on the age of the…

Study Shows Stem Cells Observed to Prevent Muscle Atrophy

Muscle atrophy refers to the wasting of muscles, which can occur due to lack of exercise or as a result of disease or even medication. Some forms of muscle atrophy can be treated with changes to the diet, exercise, or physical therapy, whereas others can be treated with clinical interventions like ultrasound therapy or surgery….
