stem cells for nerve damage

Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

In recent clinical trials, umbilical cord allograft stem cells were found to not only be effective in treating symptoms of multiple sclerosis but were found to be safe and even lead to sustained improvements in disability and brain lesions. This report was released on March 20th, 2018 on the website Multiple Sclerosis News Today. The original article titled, “Clinical feasibility of umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal allograft stem cells in the treatment of multiple sclerosis” was published in the Journal of Translational Medicine in January of 2018. Current treatments of MS, while able to reduce the frequency of flare-ups and slow disease progression, are not able to repair damage to nerve cells or the protective layer around nerve fibers known as the myelin sheath. As we discussed in our article, “Not All Stem Cells Are Created Equal”, allograft stem cells must at least be multipotent in order to have the ability to differentiate into multiple cell types. Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs,...

Stem cell PRP injection

Treating Hair Loss with Stem Cell & PRP Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been known for years to be a viable and strong treatment option for a variety of orthopedic conditions. PRP contains growth factors, meaning it can stimulate the regeneration of cells. In recent years, trials have been conducted to measure the efficacy of PRP therapy as a treatment option for hair loss. In 2015, Stem Cells Translational Medicine released an article on the usage of platelet-rich plasma injections to the scalp and the resulting hair growth measured against a placebo subject control factor. They found that PRP therapy could effectively stimulate follicular and perifollicular angiogenesis. This means PRP therapy stimulates one of the major factors in active hair growth. Additionally, PRP therapy during this trial was found to have a positive impact on male androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) without any major side effects. Mesenchymal allograft stem cells have been a hot topic in the medical community due to their ability to differentiate and take on the functions of multiple cell...

Not All Stem Cells Are Created Equal

Researching allograft stem cell therapy can be a daunting task for those wanting to learn more about how it might be beneficial. On one hand, allograft stem cell therapy carries the potential to be a revolutionary treatment option when used correctly for certain conditions. On the other hand, there is a lot of misinformation out there about allograft stem cells. Some clinics are not up-front about the source of their allograft stem cells and others exaggerate or outright lie about their effectiveness for any given condition. Even if a clinic is up-front about the source of their allograft stem cells, how do you know if these allograft stem cells are the right kind of allograft stem cells and if they will be useful for you? In this article, we discuss the different kinds of allograft stem cells and which ones are useful in medical applications for given conditions. Kinds of Allograft Stem Cells The definition of an ‘allograft stem cell’ is an undifferentiated...

Foot pain and diabetic neuropathy

Can Stem Cells Treat Diabetic Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when your peripheral nervous system is damaged. Your peripheral nervous system sends information from your brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) to the rest of your body. Peripheral neuropathy can occur as a result of injuries, infections, and exposure to toxins, but is commonly a result of having diabetes. In this case, it is referred to as diabetic neuropathy. In recent studies, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have shown promise in treating diabetic neuropathy (DN). It was discovered that MSC treatment reverses manifestations of diabetic neuropathy, possibly due to the important role MSCs have in repairing tissue and lowering blood glucose levels. The role MSCs take in regeneration may show promise for other forms of peripheral neuropathy as well. Diabetic Neuropathy has no known cure. DN is only treated with goals such as slowing the progression of the disease, relieving pain, managing complications and restoring function where possible. Current treatment includes anti-seizure drugs to ease nerve pain and antidepressants which also help with the...

stem cells for antiaging

The Future of Anti-Aging & Stem Cell Therapy

Connections have frequently been made between aging and the loss of stem cells. As you get older, the total number of your own, naturally-occurring stem cells decreases. The question then has been simply if you increase the number of stem cells in the body, can you combat aging? New studies show that stem cell therapy with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may help certain individuals showing signs of aging. One such study was performed by researchers at the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute (ISCI) at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. The goal was to determine the effectiveness of MSC’s in reducing the effects of frailty due to aging. Phase 1 and 2 trials demonstrated no adverse health effects from the treatments. Joshua M. Hare, M.D. described the results as surprising, exciting and confidence-building in utilizing allograft stem cell treatments for this application in antiaging. Functional loss of allograft stem cells plays an important role in organismic aging processes. Recent research discoveries have uncovered the...

stem cells for orthopedic disease

Stem Cells Treating Orthopedic Diseases

Over the past 20 years, there has been a great deal of research and application of allograft stem cells in the treatment of orthopedic diseases. The regenerative properties of mesenchymal allograft stem cells, found in the umbilical cord allograft stem cells provided by Stem Cells LA, have been utilized in tissue engineering techniques in orthopedic surgery. Allograft stem cells may be particularly effective when managing special and compulsive injuries within the musculoskeletal system. During the course of much research into the efficacy of allograft stem cells in treating orthopedic conditions, the Medline and PubMed library databases were studied and referenced. In multiple documented research and clinical trials, multiple sources of allograft stem cells had been studied for orthopedics clinical care practice. The results found that allograft stem cell therapy has successfully been used for major orthopedic procedures such as bone-joint injuries (fractures, bone defects, nonunion and spinal injuries), ligament-tendon injuries, osteoarthritis-cartilage defects, osteogenesis imperfecta, and femoral head osteonecrosis. When combined with...

stem cells for erectile dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction & Stem Cell Therapy

Per the European Association of Urology, new clinical trial results show that allograft stem cells can restore erectile function to allow previously impotent men to have spontaneous intercourse, or without any other medications, injections or implants. This is the first time in a clinical trials allograft stem cell therapy has produced patients who have recovered sufficient erectile function to enable intercourse. Within 6 months of the treatment, 8 of the 21 patients reported that they had recovered sufficient erectile function to achieve penetrative sexual activity. However, the IIEF questionnaire (standard for measuring erectile function) score of all the patients increased following the trials. This means that even if it wasn’t enough to not still need the support of medications or other options alongside the treatment, all the patients reported an improvement in their erectile function. Erectile dysfunction is a huge problem for men, affecting nearly half of men between the ages of 40 and 70 to some degree. Erectile dysfunction is...

stem cells for heart disease

Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Disease

About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year accounting for 1 in every 4 deaths. It is the leading cause of death for both men and women. While lifestyle changes, medications and surgery can help, there is still much to be discovered in the treating of conditions impacting the heart. Research into allograft stem cell therapy as a beneficial treatment for individuals suffering from various heart conditions has been promising. Preclinical studies of allograft stem cell therapy for cardiovascular disease indicate that cell therapy promotes cardiac repair. The quality of this research has improved over the past 10 to 15 years due to the amount of time it has been a serious subject of study. While allograft stem cells are not argued to provide for complete cardiac recovery, the research is still promising for individuals who are undergoing other treatments and lifestyle changes and are considering adding allograft stem cell therapy as a treatment option. Considered a regenerative treatment option,...

stem cells for neurological diseases

Treating Neurological Disease with Stem Cells

A report from the World Health Organization shows that neurological disorders, ranging from epilepsy to Alzheimer’s Disease, affect up to one billion people worldwide. This report, having originally come out in 2007, can only look more daunting today with no apparent advancements in treating many common neurological diseases. At that time, an estimated 6.8 million people died every year as a result of neurological disorders. Research indicates that allograft stem cell therapy may prove effective in treating various neurological conditions. Conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s Disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), and spinal cord injury are caused by a loss of neurons and glial cells in the brain or spinal cord. In recent years, neurons and glial cells have successfully been generated from allograft stem cells such as mesenchymal stem cells (found in the umbilical cord allograft stem cells provided at Stem Cells LA). Such research supports the hope for allograft stem cell-based therapies in the...

stem cells for autoimmune disease

Autoimmune Diseases & Stem Cell Therapy Applications

It can be challenging to treat autoimmune disease. This unique phenomenon occurs when the body’s protective shield, or immune system, attacks its own vital organs, cells, and tissues. Treating autoimmune diseases begins with understanding why the disease takes place in the first place. The body’s main line of defense against infectious organisms is the immune system. In order to protect the body successfully, the immune system must be able to distinguish between cellular components that are part of its own body and those that are not, such as foreign bacteria. There are two general errors the immune system can make during this process. The first is the most common of these two potential errors; the immune system does not react quickly enough and an infection begins. In the second error, the immune system misidentifies its own cells or components as foreign and autoimmune disease happens. Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases Medical science has made great advancements in treating many conditions that are forms of...
