Adipose Tissue-Derived Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is a field of research concerned with the process of replacing diseased, dying, or dead cells with the intent of restoring structure and function. In its most basic form, regenerative medicine seeks to regrow cells that were lost or damaged due to injury or condition. Examples of regenerative medicine applications include restoring heart…

Hyperbaric Oxygen Moves Stem Cells from Bone Marrow to Bloodstream

Hyperbaric Oxygen Moves Stem Cells from Bone Marrow to Bloodstream

Stem cells are generating so much excitement in research and clinical circles because they have the capacity to become many other types of cells. They also release a number of important molecules such as hormones, cytokines, and genetic material that can potentially be helpful for patients. Researchers have found that not only does hyperbaric oxygen…

Extracellular vesicles derived from bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells protects against experimental colitis

Colitis is inflammation of the colon, also known as the large intestine. Several things can cause colitis such as infection, medication, ischemia, or chronic inflammatory bowel disease.  Inflammatory bowel diseases that affect the colon, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, are particularly challenging for patients. It is a chronic disease that causes cramping pain,…

Intravenous Stem Cells in the Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Intravenous Stem Cells in the Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, together known as inflammatory bowel disease, are chronic disorders of the lower digestive tract that cause patients considerable difficulty and discomfort. Patients generally go through periods of normalcy punctuated by relapses. In cases of inflammatory bowel disease, patients may experience severe, and sometimes bloody diarrhea. Patients also experience crampy abdominal…

Mesenchymal Stem Cells Show Promise for Treating Silicosis

Mesenchymal Stem Cells Show Promise for Treating Silicosis

Silicosis, which is also known as miner’s phthisis, potter’s rot grinder’s asthma, potter’s rot, is an occupational disease of the lungs that is caused by the inhalation of a specific type of dust called crystalline silica dust. The disease causes inflammation and scarring in the lungs that leads to the formation of lesions. The disease…
