Mechanism of Multiple Sclerosis Stem Cell Therapy

Click play button.

Cleveland, Ohio -

A recent study (Bai et al. Human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells induce Th2-polarized immune response and promote endogenous repair in animal models of multiple sclerosis. Glia. 2009 Aug 15;57(11):1192-203) asked the question of whether human mesenchymal stem cells may be useful in the treatment of the mouse model of multiple... [Read more]

Apoptotic Cells Secrete Angiogenic Factors

It is a medical mystery why approaches such as extracorporeal ozone therapy or even photopheresis seem to have therapeutic effects in certain situations.  One possibility is that stressing of cells outside of the body causes formation of apoptotic bodies, with the apoptotic bodies having a therapeutic effect.

The possibility of apoptotic bodies... [Read more]

Hair Stem Cells for Injured Nerves

Sagamihara, Japan -

Hair follicle stem cells have previously been demonstrated to possess various characteristics of other stem cells, including migration to SDF-1, thus potentially allowing intravenous injection.  Also this stem cell population has been proposed, along with adipose stem cells, to have immune...
