Stem Cells Helping Treat Severe Diabetes

Severe diabetics are often treated through a technique called islet transplantation, but this transplantation method has certain limitations. Researchers have recently demonstrated that that using a certain type of stem cell, called the mesenchymal stem cell, can improve the ability of islet transplants to improve diabetes in patients. Those who suffer from Type 1 diabetes…

Researchers Improving the Use of Stem Cells for Orthopedics

A group of scientists, led by Jin Nam at the University of California-Riverside, have found a new way to optimize the use of stem cells for orthopedic purposes. The technique involves strategically using biomechanical forces to create the specific cell type needed to repair orthopedic tissues. The normal development of bone and cartilage critically depend…

Neural Stem Cells Healing Spinal Cord Injury

There is currently no go-to highly effective treatment option for spinal cord injury, despite the significant challenges those with this type of injury face. However, recent research has shown that stem cells of the brain, called neural stem cells, can help regenerate damaged area of the spinal cord. The scientists, who conducted their experiment in…
