Stem cell is all ready to set another array of success story in ophthalmic treatment. Congenital retinal degeneration or retinal degeneration, a major cause of blindness, related to ageing can be repaired by the incorporation of stem cells. It has not been tested clinically till now, but has been successful in animal testing. It promises a bright future.
STEM cell is a boon towards modern medical research. You name almost any ailment, you may find stem cell therapy as your friend to rescue. But are you aware of the fact that there may arise severe complications after you have undergone a stem cell transplant?
Study shows higher relation between collagen I and II after autologus stem cell treatment. Collagen is the main supportive protein of cartilage, connective tissue, tendon, skin, and bone. It is a fibrous insoluble protein consisting of bundles of tiny reticular fibrils that combine to form the white glistening inelastic fibers of the tendons, the ligaments, and the fascia.
GRAFT vs host disease has been a common chronic disease in older days when tissue grafting derived from other people had been a common practise until the advent of artificial implants. Present day stem cell therapy involves transplantations which has again given triggered the frequency of the disease again. A new therapy has come up to solve the problem, but will it be effective enough?
LOWERING of ejection fraction of heart is a serious case in heart patients. Often people suffer from breathing problems and low heart rate due to lowering of ejection fraction of heart after a person experiences a cardiac attack. But stem cell once again hovered its magic stick round, and it has been seen that regeneration of new heart muscles and veins has improved the percentage about 30%.
World’s First: Stem cells from own organ used to treat damaged heart
STANFORD University, in California, USA, has been the pioneer for many researches in stem cell therapeutics. It is moving very fast, and aiming to make stem cell therapy available to the patients’ bed in almost every other case. Be it cancer or Parkinson’s, stem cell research and Stanford University is becoming synonyms for cure.
A new study conducted on mice by scientists from University of California, San Francisco (UCFS) has identified that an extract derived from bone marrow cells can effectively improve cardiac function after heart attack as bone marrow stem cells does accordingly.
The ban on embryonic stem cell research has pushed back US almost a decade in stem cell research. It feels heavy competition from other European countries and from Australia who has taken the highest leap in this field of research. So why the “Bio tech Giant”- US faltering behind in stem cell research? Its because the last eight year lag.
As per Science Daily its a stem cell surprise, and its being such a surprise that would divert the whole global stem cell thoughts and would overturn the previous stem cell researches.
