Placental Stem Cells to Improve Stroke Recovery

Stroke affects around 150, 000 people in the UK and is the third most common cause of death. It is the equivalent of a Boeing 747 fully laden, crashing, killing everybody onboard every single week. (Professor Pankaj Sharma, Consultant Neurologist at University of London, Imperial College and The London...

Cord blood stem cell trial finds improvements in autism symptoms

Parents of 25 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) report that their children showed reduced signs of ASD after a recent stem cell treatment. The children received infusions of their own stem cells from banked umbilical cord blood as part of a clinical trial. ASD-related behaviour reduction The children (aged between two and five years)...

UF Health diabetes researchers discover a way to expand potent regulatory cells

For parents, storing their newborn baby’s umbilical cord blood is a way to preserve potentially lifesaving cells. Now, a group of University of Florida Health researchers has found a way to expand and preserve certain cord-blood cells as a potential treatment for Type 1 diabetes. The findings involve thymic...

Osteoarthritis - Cord blood treatment

Cellular-Based Treatment for Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the joints for which pain management is the most common treatment. Researchers are investigating using bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) as a cellular-based method of regenerating damaged tissue and treating osteoarthritis. Patients with osteoarthritis (OA) suffer from painful inflammation in their joints and...
