What are mesenchymal stem cells? – Palm Beach Post

By raymumme

In the United States alone, more than 400,000 lumbar discectomies and 500,000 spinal fusions are performed each year for symptoms related to lumbar disc degeneration. The ability to get these to heal without surgery has been a long-term goal of many patients and physicians alike. The Spine Center continues to be on the forefront of treatment options and is proud to offer stem cell therapy treatments for patients as part of our comprehensive non-operative treatment options.

Living Organ Donors: Proposed Tax Deduction Could Help Defray Donation Expenses – Hartford Courant

By JoanneRUSSELL25

The decision to become a living organ donor is a significant one and, among the many factors to weigh, donors should consider potential financial consequences of their altruism. Medical costs associated with organ, tissue and bone marrow donations don't fall on the donor; they typically are paid by the recipient and often covered by insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. But other related expenses including travel, lodging and loss of wages due to time out of work are the donor's responsibility.

How Big Data is Being Mobilized in the Fight Against Leukemia – Drug Discovery & Development

By JoanneRUSSELL25

Healthy cell function relies on well orchestrated gene activity. Via a fantastically complex network of interactions, around 30,000 genes cooperate to maintain this delicate balance in each of the37.2 trillion cellsin the human body. Broadly speaking, cancer is a disruption of this balance by genetic changes, or mutations.

Stem cell treatments can go wrong – Jamaica Observer

By NEVAGiles23

Stem cells are the foundation of all our body cells before they differentiate to become specialised cells that grow into our tissues and organs, such as kidney cells, muscle cells, nerve cells, and so on. They commonly come from two sources: The embryo (embryonic stem cells formed in early development after the human egg is fertilised by a sperm); and adult tissue (adult stem cells, such as those existing in bone marrow to later differentiate to form red blood cells, white blood cells and other components of the blood). The use of human embryonic stems cells for treatment or research is often frowned upon by some people, as they regard the human embryo as a person that should not be discarded after such endeavours

The suggestion that young blood may be the key toreversingsome of the negative aspects of aging sounds like the setup to a horror movie. In reality, however, itrefers to some groundbreaking work being carried out byscientists at the University of Ulm in Germany. Theyve been examining the ways that old blood can be made young again, and they hypothesize that it might help fight some of the effects of aging.To achieve this, theyve discovereda protein capable of boosting blood stem cells, which prompts them to act like the stem cells of younger people

In what could potentially serve as an importantmoment in the quest to 3D-print body parts, a team of scientists from Swedens Sahlgrenska Academy and Chalmers University of Technology have managed to successfully implant human cartilage cells in six-week-old baby mice. The researchers created a gel composed of human cartilage cells, printed it through a CELLINK3D bioprinter and implanted the material inside the lab mice.

A non-surgical treatment that uses a patients own bone marrow stem cells to treat chest pain or angina improved both symptoms and the length of time treated patients could be physically active, according to recent research. We injected a catalyst molecule that caused bone marrow stem cells to enter the patients blood, then harvested them to re-inject into the patient,said Hadyanto Lim, Ph.D., study senior author. Thirty minutes after the cell separation procedure finished, the collected stem cells were injected back into the patient through an IV
