Reversing Heart Failure Utilizing the Patient’s Own Stem Cells

Researchers have been working to enhance the productive potential of autologous (a patient’s own) stem cells.  In one study, a patient’s own stem cells were extracted and cultured to differentiate into heart tissue cells.  These cultured stem cells were then implanted into the damaged heart tissue and were found to improve some of the symptoms of heart failure.

Spinal Cord Injuries Show Improved Motor Function After Stem Cell Treatments

In a recent study published in the May issue of Neurosurgery, the journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, patients suffering from permanent spinal cord injuries (paraplegia or quadriplegia) recovered significant  motor function after receiving a treatment utilizing their own [autologous] mesenchymal stem cell (MSC).

Study Shows Autologous Stem Cells Have Capacity to Repair Heart Damage

Japanese researchers have successfully used autologous (a patient’s own) stem cells to grow new heart muscle tissue in order to treat heart disease.  In the study, the researchers found that implanting this new tissue into damaged heart tissue resulted in overall improved heart function.

After the birth of her youngest son Carlo, Lisa Valastro, wife of TLC’s “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro, made the wise investment of banking the stem cells from Carlo’s cord blood and placenta in the event that he may need them for future medical treatment.  Valastro previously banked the cord blood stem cells from each of her four children’s umbilical cords, ensuring that they would each have access to the best possible match for stem cell therapies: their own stem cells.

Research Advances Stem Cell Treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease

A recent study at Lund University in Sweden reveals the discovery of a type of stem cell that has the ability to differentiate into new brain tissue.  This discovery introduces the possibility of  finding ways to repair damage to the brain as a result of disease or injury. Researchers plan to use this study as a springboard for further studies in stem cell therapies to treat neural degenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
