Stem Cell Treatment For Alzheimer Disease

2015

Many years after my grand mom’s death, I now realized that she might be suffering from Alzheimer Disease.  At that phase of my life I was just a kid. As all other kids, I was just being selfish and did not realize through what condition she was going through. I had a very tight knit family, and my granny was like a glue holding us together. She was always the first person I would always look out for after coming back home from school, but little did I know, that these would be the memories of my childhood that I would ever miss the most.

Amyotrophic lateral Sclerosis (ALS) treatment through stem cells

30
Jan

2015

Long before the existence of various supportive groups, internet and way before the ice bucket challenges, no one would have ever heard the real culprit of the diseases as the ALS or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. In fact, just a decade ago itself, it was a disease under the shadow. During our parent’s time, I think the disease didn’t have its own advocacy organization. People with the recent onset of the disease, would not had able to understand why they suddenly started with the odd or barely perceptible limp! They might have addressed it as a delib......

Stem Cell Transplants Offer First-Ever MS Treatment That Reverses Disability

Jan

2015

Dr. Richard K. Burt performed the first hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) for a multiple sclerosis (MS) patient in the United States at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Now Burt, Chief of the Division of Medicine-Immunotherapy and Autoimmune Diseases at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, is making headlines again.

Burt and his colleagues published the results of their newest HSCT study earlier this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Their results show that HSCT could be the first MS ther......

After being diagnosed with autism, two-year-old Archit Dev would have probably spent the rest of his life as an incapacitated individual had it not been for his resolute father and the science behind stem cells.

A resident of Ghaziabad, Archit was unable make eye contact, speak to anyone or even sit at one location. But after undergoing treatment for a year, Archit now has better concentration, understands names and instructions and is even devising new games.

His parents, who are witness to his unexpected improvement, attribute this change to ste......

UM study Explores How Stem Cells Can Help Burn Victims

Jan

2015

In a Miami hospital room and a research lab a few buildings away,  doctors conducting stem cell clinical trials are trying to change the way burn victims are treated — including military personnel injured in the line of duty.

A pair of University of Miami doctors are conducting the research, funded by the Department of Defense, to develop new therapies using donor stem cells to restore tissue and reduce long-term scarring from burns. The treatment, if successful, could revolutionize burn care by decreasing the need for reconstructive skin graft surgery.

Stem Cells' Ability to Regenerate Bone, Cartilage in Mice May Offer Insight into OA, Osteoporosis

20
Jan

2015

According to recent research, a stem cell with the ability to regenerate both bone and cartilage has been pinpointed in the bone marrow of mice. The cells, known as osteochondroreticular (OCR) stem cells, were discovered by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) by tracking a protein expressed by the cells. A CUMC news release states that using this marker, researchers found that OCR cells self-renew and generate key bone and cartilage cells, including osteoblasts and chondrocytes.

2015

Early baldness is the most depressing and common experience for both men and women nowadays. As the full head of hair is directly associated with the youth and beauty, it may be quite frustrating to face the hair loss at the young age. The media is full of many adverts offering the best creams, oils and other effective treatments for hair loss, although in reality, what all they can offer are false promises or temporary solution to prevent hair loss. Since last couple of years, research on how stem cells can be effectively used for the problem of hair loss is in......

Stem Cells That Regenerate Bones And Cartilage Identified

Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have identified stem cells capable of regenerating both bone and cartilage in mice.

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) discovered the cells, called osteochondroreticular (OCR) stem cells, in bone marrow of mice by tracking a protein expressed by the cells.

Using this marker, the researchers found that OCR cells self-renew and generate key bone and cartilage cells, including osteoblasts and chondrocytes.

Researchers also showed that OCR stem cells, when transplanted to a f......

Blood Work: Scientists Uncover Surprising New Tools To Rejuvenate The Brain

12
Jan

2015

Scientists used to believe that our neurologic fate was sealed at birth with a single, lifetime allotment of brain cells.

The thinking went – not so very long ago – that little by little, with the bumps of age and lifestyle, this initial stash of neurons died, taking our brain function along with them.

Yet, strange as it may sound, canaries, video games, and young blood are finally putting that punishing prospect to rest.

Studies involving bird song, gaming, and the rejuvenating factors of young blood have shown not only that neurons can b......

It was a sunny December afternoon; I and my sisters were enjoying our vacations on the Goa beach! We were at the pick of our enjoyment and suddenly my sister screamed Oh my God! What is this? I have developed rashes all over my skin! She was itching horribly and we all were little bit upset! We initially thought that she might have eaten something which she is allergic to! We rushed to the nearest local doctor and found that it was an allergy due to sunlight! That was really shocking! An allergy from sunlight! How can it be possible!  But yes, it can be possible! After a through i......

Torn or injured meniscus is the common knee problem linked up with the sports or accident. Around millions of people have the ultimate choice of surgeries to repair a damage in the knee, according to many leading orthopaedic surgeons. The basics of all the knee injuries is due to permanent damage or loss of cartilage. Cartilage is generally observed in close contact with the bones. It is tough, elastic and flexible tissue offering cushion like protection to the bone. The kind of a cartilage that supports the joints of the bone is known as the “Hyaline Cartilage......

Breakthrough in Stem Cell Treatment for Parkinson's

06
Jan

2015

In a major breakthrough for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, researchers working with laboratory rats show it is possible to make dopamine cells from embryonic stem cells and transplant them into the brain, replacing the cells lost to the disease.

Parkinson's disease is caused by the gradual loss of dopamine-producing cells in the brain. Dopamine is a brain chemical that, among other things, helps regulate movement and emotional responses.

There are no cures for Parkinson's disease; there are drugs that ease symptoms, but......

Scientists Take A Step Towards Curing Infertility With Stem Cells

05
Jan

2015

Stem cells are basically like biological alchemy. You can turn them in to almost anything, including it seems sperm or eggs. Researchers working jointly in the UK and Israel have figured out how to create precursor cells for gametes, you know the bits that combine during fertilization to create a tiny human. There's still a long way to go before viable eggs or sperm can be created in a petri dish, but this is a major first step. The hope here is that one day couples where either partner (or both) suffer from infertility could have a child. The process would obviously still be i......
