Stem Cells Reverse Paralysis Caused by Spinal Cord Injury

Stem Cells Reverse Paralysis Caused by Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can be one of the most devastating injuries. Long neurons that extend from the brain down the spinal cord are severed and scarred. In most cases, this damage can never be repaired. If patients survive an injury to the spinal cord, they can be permanently paralyzed. Researchers have attempted to use high-dose…

Stem Cell Secretomes for Brain Repair

A number of different stem cell types have been shown to exert significant therapeutic effects when transplanted into the central nervous system. These cells include non-hematopoietic stem cells such as mesenchymal stem cells and neural/progenitor stem cells and carry out their effects by secreting what are known as neurotrophic paracrine factors, whichhelp to control the immune system….

Parkinson’s Disease May Go Beyond Just Dopamine

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that causes tremor,rigidity, changes in facial expression, and several other symptoms. Whilesufferers usually retain their full cognitive abilities and memory, they tendto be impacted in mood and some mental health conditions that emerge as part ofthe condition process. Parkinson’s disease is caused by loss of brain cells in…

Scientists Have Discovered Skeletal Stem Cells in Humans

The human skeleton is made up of bone, cartilage, fat, nerves, blood vessels, and bone marrow. While the skeleton is usually strong and vibrant in youth, it changes considerably with age. Many people, especially women, experience demineralization of bone called osteoporosis. Most of us will suffer from painful, stiff, arthritic joints either from osteoarthritis or…

How Human Adipose Tissues Can Help with Bone Organ Generation

How Human Adipose Tissues Can Help with Bone Organ Generation

Bone generally develops via one of two distinct mechanisms: intramembranous ossification and endochondral ossification. In the former case, mesenchymal progenitor cells directly differentiate into osteoblasts that form bone. In the latter case, the mesenchymal progenitor cells first create a matrix of cartilage that then acts as a template to enable the remodeling or development of…
