Stem cell therapy for diabetes

this month, it was reported that scientists at Harvard University have successfully made insulin-secreting beta cells from human pluripotent stem cells. This is an important milestone towards a “stem cell therapy” for diabetes, which will have huge effects on human medicine. Diabetes is a group of diseases in which the blood glucose is too high. In type 1 diabetes, the …

Mesenchymal stem cell-based treatment for cartilage defects in osteoarthritis

Abstract: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common disorder and the restoration of the diseased articular cartilage in patients with OA is still a challenge for researchers and clinicians. Currently, a variety of experimental strategies have investigated whether mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) instead of chondrocytes can be used for the regeneration and maintenance of articular cartilage in OA. MSCs can modulate the …

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy For Wellness And Healthy Aging

Aging and MSCs Ageing is associated with decreased fracture repair and reduced skeletal bone mass as a consequence of a net reduction in bone formation. This can result in osteoporosis with devastating socioeconomic consequences. As indicated, bone formation depends on MSCs present within bone marrow which in vitro give rise to CFU-F that differentiate into the osteogenic, adipogenic, fibroblastic, and …

Stem cell therapies for heart disease: why do we need bioengineers?

The limited regenerative potential of the heart via cell proliferation or stem cell recruitment is insufficient to compensate for tissue loss after an acute myocardial infarction [1], [2]. Consequently, the increased workload placed on the surviving myocardium often leads to heart failure. Approximately 865,000 Americans per year suffer a myocardial infarction and nearly 4.9 million are afflicted with heart failure, …

Reversing Aging Process Of Human Adult Stem Cells Possible

Scientists who carried out a study in cell culture have demonstrated how the aging process for human adult stem cells can be reversed, opening a new avenue for therapies that could repair tissue damage linked to a wide range of diseases, authors from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and Georgia Institute of Technology wrote in the journal Cell Cycle. As …

Tissue Engineering with Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Transplant surgery is a leading therapy to treat organ failure or tissue loss. In 2001 in the United States alone, despite 24,076 lifesaving organ transplants, 6,439 people died waiting for a transplant, leaving 84,798 registrations on the waiting list for an organ at the end of the year [1]. It is clear that organ transplant alone is not a viable …

Stem Cells: New Hope for the Therapy of Lethal Diseases?

The supply of donated organs and tissue that are used to treat diseases and disorders is far outnumbered by the need. Recently, there has been a lot of interest in the use of stem cells to treat such disorders, because these cells have a large proliferative potential while they can differentiate into every cell in the body under the appropriate …

Adult Stem Cell Differentiation: What Does It Mean?

Abstract: The very property that puts adult stem cells in high demand, their ability to differentiate into mature cells with specialized functions, is a barrier to their expansion in culture. In many cases, tissue cell differentiation programs conclude with terminal division arrest and, eventually, cell death. Therefore, propagation and expansion of many types of normal mature cells in sufficient quantities …
