  • Stem Cell Research Advancing Rapidly

    Stem Cell Research Advancing Rapidly

    Researchers urge measured optimism about new studies on stem cell treatments for heart issues, rotator cuff injuries, and hair loss. Stem cells have been touted as treatments for everything from hair loss to heart disease. But are those claims scientifically sound? Research on the technology continues to look promising, but many of its human applications are still preliminary and their effectiveness anecdotal. Samumed, a $12 billion biotech start-up based in San Diego, profiled in Business Insider, exemplifies both sides of the coin.

  • Stem Cell Treatment to Repair Torn Meniscus

    Stem Cell Treatment to Repair Torn Meniscus

    Using sheep, whose knees are similar to human knees, researchers got the meniscus to regrow itself by implanting a biodegradable plastic device to lure stem cells and help them grow. Every year about 1 million people have surgery to repair a tear in the meniscus of their knee, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. It’s an injury that can’t be fully fixed since cartilage doesn’t repair itself very well. Even patients who have surgery often go on to develop arthritis. Some eventually need a knee replacement.

  • Stem Cell Therapy For Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Stem Cell Therapy For Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that mainly affects the joints. Stem cell therapy is a relatively new area of research that is showing promise in treating autoimmune conditions such as this. In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the immune system mistakenly attacks the tissue that lines the joints, which can cause pain, inflammation, swelling, and stiffness.

    Can Stem Cell Therapy Repair Damaged Knees?

    Overview - Throughout the United States, stem cell therapy is being touted as a miracle cure for everything from wrinkles to spinal repair. Though very few of these applications have any scientific backing, stem cell therapy for knees has been the subject of quite a few promising studies. Arthritis develops when the cartilage lining the joints starts to deteriorate, causing pain and limiting function. Osteoarthritis is incredibly common. Arthritis and similar conditions are a major cause of disability in the United States.

  • Alleviate Back Pain With Stem Cell Therapy!

    Alleviate Back Pain With Stem Cell Therapy!

    Studies show that most of us experience back pain at some point in our lives. Back pain has a wide range of causes; it can originate from a severe spine injury, sports injury, accidents, or even bad posture. More often than not, the constant wear and tear of the spine induce back pain. Apart from that, an injury that has aggravated over the years can also lead to excruciating pain in the back.

  • Can Stem Cells be a Solution for Cartilage Regeneration?

    Can Stem Cells be a Solution for Cartilage Regeneration?

    It is accepted that the cartilage in our joints does not have the ability to heal itself due to lack of blood supply. Currently, there are not many effective treatments for cartilage regeneration. Stem cells may be an answer. A recent Phase III clinical trial at the Medical Center for Translational Research (MTR) of Osaka University looks into the effectiveness of stem cells in regenerating cartilage tissues.

    How Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Prevent The Need For Hip Replacement?

    Those who experience severe chronic hip pain may look for options to alleviate their pain before settling on surgery. These options include experimental treatments like stem cells. While still fairly new and still requiring many hurdles in FDA regulation, stem cell treatment continues to prove itself a viable option for hip replacement candidates. Stem cells have shown early promise in the treatment of pain relief in joints, including the hip.

  • Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Hip Pain?

    Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Hip Pain?

    Hips are the largest joints in your body, and they bear most of your weight from your upper body. It is common for the cartilage that keeps the joint moving smoothly to wear down over time, developing into osteoarthritis. This painful condition can prevent you from performing regular activities, and prevent you from enjoying life the way you used to. Full or partial hip replacement surgery is one option, but as an alternative, can stem cell therapy help hip pain?
