Stem cells: the future of medicine – Medical Xpress

By LizaAVILA

June 23, 2017 Imagine being able to take cells from your skin, transform them into other types of cells, such as lung, brain, heart or muscle cells, and use those to cure your ailments, from diabetes to heart disease or macular degeneration. To realise this, however, challenges still remain, Professor Janet Rossant, a pioneer in the field, says. All across the world, scientists have begun clinical trials to try and do just that, by making use of the incredible power and versatility of stem cells, which are special cells that can make endless copies of themselves and transform into every other type of cell

An LAPD officer needs a bone marrow transplant. His ethnicity limits his chances of getting one – Los Angeles Times

By LizaAVILA

Matthew Medinas doctors diagnosed him with a rare blood disease a few months ago and told him he would probably die without a bone marrow transplant. With that prognosis came another: The 40-year-old Los Angeles police officer had a less than 50% chance of finding a donor because he is not white. Most successful matches for bone marrow transplants involve a donor and patient of the same ethnicity.

Aging-related mutations in blood cells represent major new risk factor for cardiovascular disease – Medical Xpress

By daniellenierenberg

June 22, 2017 Credit : Susanna M. Hamilton, Broad Communications Scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have found that a set of genetic mutations in blood cells that arises during aging may be a major new risk factor for cardiovascular disease. In contrast to inherited genetic predispositions and traditional lifestyle risk factors, such as smoking or an unhealthy diet, the new mutations are “somatic mutations” that originate in stem cells in the bone marrow as people age

Warwick man’s plea for more organ donors as he heads to World Transplant Games – Warwick Courier

By LizaAVILA

11:59 Thursday 22 June 2017 A cancer survivor and transplant athlete from Warwick has issued a fresh plea for people to sign up to be an organ donor as he heads off to Malaga for the World Transplant Games. Simon Perkin was diagnosed with blood cancer in 1991 at the age of 26 and after years of treatment and his deteriorating health, was left with no alternative but to have a bone marrow transplant in July 2012, when a donor match was found.

Stem cell therapy relying on patient’s own unhealthy heart may be dangerous – Genetic Literacy Project

By raymumme

A new study at Tel Aviv University shows that stem cell therapy, one of the few treatments available to patients with severe and end-stage heart failure, can actually harm them unless it is done differently. We concluded that stem cells used in cardiac therapy should be drawn from healthy donors or be better genetically engineered for the patient, said lead researcher Jonathan Leor of the universitys Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Sheba Medical Center. Doctors use tissue or adult stem cells to replace damaged tissue, which encourages regeneration of blood vessel cells and new heart muscle tissue

Stem Cell Clinics List | Stem Cells Freak

By NEVAGiles23

Here we have compiled a list of several clinics offering stem cell treatments. Please note that the “conditions treated” refers to the conditions that THEY claim to treat. Most, if not all, stem cell treatments (except hematopoietic stem cell transplantation) aren’t FDA approved, meaning that they haven’t been clincally tested for safety or efficacy.
