Scientists Find Key Clues to Regulate Bone-Building Cells

The prospect of regenerating bone lost to cancer or trauma is a step closer to the clinic as University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists have identified two proteins found in bone marrow as key regulators of the master cells responsible for making new bone. In a study published online today (Feb....

Tests show Mesoblast’s stem cell treatment working against arthritis

Image credit: Oli Scarff/Getty Images A stem cell treatment developed by Australian biotech Mesoblast has been found in a clinical trial to be effective against rheumatoid arthritis. Shares in Mesoblast rose by 2.6% to $1.16 in early trade. A single intravenous infusion of the treatment, MPC-300-IV, improved symptoms, physical function...

Could a stem cell jab stop your eyesight from failing? We look at some of the treatments being tested in Britain

From easing creaky knees to mending a damaged heart, it seems that scientists are on the brink of using stem cells to revolutionise treating a range of conditions. These master cells are essentially the building blocks of human tissue, and some have the capacity to turn into any type...

Regenerative Network International now offering Stem Cell therapy to help avoid hip or knee replacement

Regenerative Network International is now offering stem cell therapy to help avoid hip or knee replacement. The procedures are showing extreme effectiveness along with being nonsteroidal, low risk and outpatient. Hip and Knee replacement procedures should always be performed as an absolute last resort, since there are potential significant risks involved....

Global Stem Cells Group Plans Bone Marrow Clinical Trials For Knee Osteoarthritis

Pending Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval, Global Stem Cells Group, Inc. has announced plans to conduct a multi-centre, placebo controlled clinical trial to measure the safety and effectiveness of the intra-articular application of freshly isolated bone marrow stem cells for the treatment of osteoarthritis. The clinical trials, which will begin July...

Breakthrough in human cell transformation could revolutionise regenerative medicine

A breakthrough in the transformation of human cells by an international team led by researchers at the University of Bristol could open the door to a new range of treatments for a variety of medical conditions. Their paper, published this week in Nature Genetics, demonstrates the creation of a...

Health Matters: No cutting with cutting edge knee repair

As a body builder, Harold Chery was a runner up for Mr. USA; but years of heavy lifting eventually got him down. His knees took a beating. “I used to squat over 800 pounds,” says Chery.” A car accident was the final straw. Harold’s knees were shot. Now a...

Stem cell treatment shows signs of hope for boy

Three-year old James Habeck and his family have returned from a medical trip to Panama. His mother Melissa Habeck said they are noticing signs of improvement as a result of the stem cell treatment James received at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama. Treatment is hoped to...

Surgeons lead way to fix knee damage

PIONEERING surgeons at Basildon Hospital are carrying out groundbreaking operations to repair injured knees. Two patients have now undergone the procedure, which uses stem cell bone marrow to regenerate damaged cartilage – the tough, rubbery substance between the shinbone and thighbone which acts as a shock absorber. The operation,...

Stem cell discovery paves way for targeted treatment for osteoarthritis

Researchers in the Departments of Biology and Physics at York, working with colleagues at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, have identified individual stem cells that can regenerate tissue, cartilage and bone. The stem cells are mixed within human bone marrow stromal cells (MSCs) but are similar in appearance...
