Mesenchymal Stem Cells Improves Liver Function in Liver Failure

Liver failure is a serious, potentially fatal condition in which large swaths of liver cells become dysfunctional and die. Liver failure is the result of several conditions including chronic alcohol consumption, exposure to drugs that are toxic to the liver (e.g. acetaminophen), autoimmune diseases, or infections such as hepatitis C. Liver failure causes several metabolic…

The Value of Perinatal Stem Cells in Treating Conditions

The Value of Perinatal Stem Cells in Treating Conditions

Perinatal stem cells have been attracting attention globally in recent years due to their potential in regenerative medicine. These stem cells come in many forms, due to the wide variety of potential sources for these cells. Perinatal stem cells, for instance, may be umbilical cord-derived hematopoietic stem cells, amniotic epithelial cells, amniotic fluid stem cells,…

Adipose Stem Cells are Gaining Traction in Plastic Surgery

Adipose mesenchymal stromal cells, or adipose stem cells, were discovered in 2001 and have since been heavily researched for their potential use in plastic surgery. The abundance of research and the positive clinical findings have resulted in these cells being increasingly used in plastic surgery and have helped plastic surgery move to the forefront of…

Wharton’s Jelly: A Gelatin-Like Substance from the Umbilical Cord May Be the Future of Regenerative Medicine

Wharton’s Jelly: A Gelatin-Like Substance from the Umbilical Cord May Be the Future of Regenerative Medicine

Wharton’s jelly is a rather unique body fluid. It is the connective tissue found within the umbilical cord. While Wharton’s jelly is connective tissue, it more closely resembles gelatin. Historically this material was discarded as medical waste; however, Wharton’s jelly has been shown to contain a number of therapeutic substances. Among these healing substances found…

Stem Cell Treatment Study after Partial Meniscectomy

Stem Cell Treatment Study after Partial Meniscectomy

The knee is a complex joint that must support the weight of the body while allowing the leg to bend freely. An important part of the knee joint is the meniscus. The meniscus is a fibrous cartilage structure that acts as a shock absorber. While these menisci perform very well during various strenuous activities, they…
