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…

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…

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,…
