Why Stem Cells from Fat Tissue Helps Regenerate Damaged Tissue

Why Stem Cells from Fat Tissue Helps Regenerate Damaged Tissue

A popular type of stem cell in the research and clinical communities is what is known as the adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cell, which are stem cells that come from fat tissue. A review published last year in Stem Cells International has provided a comprehensive picture of what makes these stem cells beneficial for treating…

Wharton’s Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cells May Provide a Unique Treatment Option for Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)

Wharton’s Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cells May Provide a Unique Treatment Option for Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)

A recent review published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences covers evidence demonstrating that Wharton’s jelly mesenchymal stem cells show promise for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). After analyzing the literature on how stem cells may be applied in COPD treatment, the authors suggest that chronic immune-inflammatory processes are a critical component of…
