Stem Cells Can Act as Carriers for Therapies

Stem Cells Can Act as Carriers for Therapies

Evidence has been accumulating for years showing how stem cells can serve therapeutic functions. Much of this research focuses on how stem cells can be applied to damaged tissue to help regenerate the area. Because stem cells can differentiate into a wide variety of cell types, they can be widely utilized to repair distinct types…

Using Stem Cell Exosomes to Make Nerve Cells

Using Stem Cell Exosomes to Make Nerve Cells

Spinal cord injury is the second leading cause of paralysis in the United States. When the spinal cord is severely injured, nerve cells in the spinal cord are damaged or destroyed. Also, a sort of scar forms in the affected area, which prevents nerve signals from traveling between the brain and the extremities. Consequently, people…

Stem Cells May Help Those with Paraplegia

Stem Cells May Help Those with Paraplegia

A couple of weeks ago, scientists published findings showing that implanting human stem cells that are embedded within the engineered tissue can lead to the recovery of sensory perception in rats. The recovery of sensory perception is also accompanied by healing within the spinal cord and the ability to walk independently. The stem cells used…

Repairing the Heart with Stem Cell-Derived Exosomes

Myocardial infarction, also known as heart attack, can be a devastating or even deadly event. It occurs when blood flow in one or more coronary arteries is blocked. Since coronary arteries supply blood to the heart muscle, a blockage in a coronary artery prevents oxygen and nutrients from reaching heart tissue. While the heart can…

Stem Cells Show Promise for Treating Oral Disease

Stem Cells Show Promise for Treating Oral Disease

The application of stem cells to treat health disorders, diseases, and injuries has been rapidly expanding in recent years. The breadth of their application comes from the fact that stem cells are undifferentiated and can, therefore, differentiate into all sorts of cells with different specialized functions and therefore have an enormous number of potential ways…
