Stem cell transplants may induce long-term remission of multiple sclerosis

New clinical trial results provide evidence that high-dose immunosuppressive therapy followed by transplantation of a person’s own blood-forming stem cells can induce sustained remission of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system.   Five years after receiving the treatment, called high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous […]

Stem cells for peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

A jab of stem cells could help prevent pain while walking, ulcers and the need for amputation in patients with furred-up arteries in the leg. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) — when the arteries carrying blood from the heart to the legs become narrowed due to a build-up of fatty deposits called plaque — affects 2.7 […]

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells Work to Restore Immune System Balance in Early Study  

Although the origin of MS remains elusive, immune system attacks against myelin is a known hallmark of the disease. In MS patients, immune system cells called T-cells penetrate the brain and react against the myelin coating that protects and supports neurons. Essentially, the T-cells’ activity is  unregulated, something usually mediated by T regulatory cells (Tregs), and contributes to their abnormal […]
