Using Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Treat Cartilage Defects

Using Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Treat Cartilage Defects

Most large joints of the body contain cartilage, a substance that is softer and more flexible than bone. Because of its softness and flexibility, cartilage is well-suited to protect the bones as they move across one another. Unfortunately, this softness and flexibility also makes cartilage prone to injury and erosion. In patients with osteoarthritis, forexample,…

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….

How Altering pH Can Improve Stem Cell Applications for Skin Conditions

How Altering pH Can Improve Stem Cell Applications for Skin Conditions

Researchers have observed that the pH inside of certain stem cells affects their ability to proliferate and differentiate. These cells include mesenchymal stem cells and pluripotent stem cells, all of which have important applications in regenerative medicine. It is therefore important that pH be optimized to ensure that these stem cells can proliferate and differentiate…
