Allograft Stem Cells for Hand Arthritis

Stem Cells for Thumb Arthritis

The carpometacarpal (CMC) joints are five joints in the wrist that articulate the distal row of carpal bones (the ones that connect the hand to the forearm) and the proximal bases of the five metacarpal bones (the bones leading up to just before the fingers). Some of the most common injuries occur to the first CMC joint, or the one associated with the thumb. Also known as the trapeziometacarpal (TMC) joint, it plays an irreplaceable role in the normal functioning of the thumb. Osteoarthritis of the thumb can occur a number of ways. While the term “texting thumb” is often used since so many patients suffer from the condition due to frequent texting, it can occur a number of other ways. Softball injuries can result in thumb arthritis. Being active on a computer, playing frequent video games, or engaging in any number of other activities that put strain on the thumb can also result in thumb arthritis. Recent studies have shown that injuries to the thumb or pain resulting from conditions such...

Stem Cell Therapy Cures Second HIV Patient

The New York Times reported that a second patient was cured of HIV after undergoing a form of allograft stem cell therapy. The news broke earlier this month on the 4th when papers like the ‘Times’ and The Wall Street Journal began reporting on the miraculous recovery of whom is being referred to as the “London Patient” (the first patient to be cured of HIV almost exactly 12 years ago was referred to as the “Berlin Patient”). Ironically, the bone marrow stem cell transplants that cured both patients of the virus were actually intended to treat cancer in each case. While there is still much more to be done to find a reasonable way to replicate the results for the more than 70 million people infected with the disease, this success proves that a cure for H.I.V. infection is possible. Bone-marrow transplantation on the scale necessary to treat patients with HIV is unlikely to be adopted as a realistic treatment option in the future....
