What’s the Skinny on Adipose Stem Cells Derived From Fat?

In this blog, I’ll share some of the results we’ve had using stem cell therapies in different ways to show you how you can utilize them in your office or clinic. Let’s start with stem cell treatments for cosmetic regenerative tissue enhancement. The procedure starts with taking fat from one location on the patient’s body and relocating it to the area you’re trying to enhance and combining that fat with a population of adipose (fat-derived) stem cells for best results. This theory, in part, was first published back in 2006 by Kotaro Yoshimura, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of PlasticSurgery at the University of Tokyo. Dr. Yoshimura demonstrated that stem cells harvested from fat are actually responsible for creating new adipocytes. Does this mean fat is our friend?...

Essential Steps for Regenerative Medicine Practitioners

stem cell symposium, stem cells

Global Stem Cells Group offers a stem cell training course that can help you bring some of our cutting edge regenerative therapies to your practice or clinic. We offer an intensive, hands-on two day training class, show you how to collect fat tissue via our precision mini lipo-aspiration technique, and we walk your through the process of collecting bone marrow via the iliac crest. We provide didactic lectures on stem cell structure, function and treatment, and we go through the techniques to isolate and harvest stem cells from fat tissue and bone marrow, as well as the platelet rich plasma from the peripheral blood. We do all of this on actual patients! Three to four of them during the two-day course period, so that you can...

(Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know About Stem Cells But Were Afraid to Ask

stem cells

Stem cells have captured the interest of biology nerds, armchair practitioners and everyday individuals for years. Where exactly do they come from and how do they work? When can I have my torn rotary cuff/bum knee /arthritis /(fill in the blank) treated with stem cells? At Global Stem Cells Group, we are making stem cell treatments for a variety of medical conditions available in the physician’s office and out-patient treatment clinics worldwide, and we’re aiming to make them readily available in the U.S. soon, so hang tight. So, what are stem cells, you ask? A stem cell is a cell characterized by its ability to self-renew, and its ability to differentiate (change) along multiple pathways. This means a stem cell able is to form specialized cells identical...

Could stem cells repair the damaged brain in Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer's

Stem cell therapies may hold the cure to Alzheimer's, although so far that cure has been elusive. People who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease experience disorientation regarding time and place, changes in mood, personality and behavior, memory loss, difficulty solving problems or planning, and difficulty writing or performing other routine and familiar tasks. This progressive and irreversible brain disorder may affect judgment, initiative and social life, and can lead to physical symptoms such as vision problems. Alzheimer’s affects mostly people aged 70 years and above, and is more common in women. It is the main risk factor for dementia among the elderly. There is no known cure for Alzheimer's. Conventional treatments, both drug-based and non-drug strategies, may help with cognitive and behavioral symptoms, but have little to no...

New Stem Cell Research Shows Promising Results for Muscular Dystrophy

The term muscular dystrophy (MD) refers  to a group of disorders in which a genetic abnormality causes muscles responsible for controlling movement to become weak, and muscle mass to be lost. These inherited disorders usually affect voluntary (skeletal) muscles, although weakness can also extend to the muscles that control respiration and swallowing. Given that the genetic mutations triggering MD interfere with the normal production of certain critical proteins, the body is not able to reverse muscle weakening or loss of mass, so even when the disease progresses slowly, it eventually affects one’s ability to walk in a more or less conducive manner. Who is affected by muscular dystrophy? In most cases MD appears in infancy, but it’s not uncommon for symptoms to start manifesting in teens or adults. [caption id="attachment_15449"...

Stem cells may be used for healing damaged lungs

lungs

Healing damaged lungs with stem cells. A New study published by scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science suggests that stem cells may be used for repairing damaged lung tissue. This discovery gives new hope for treating conditions like bronchitis, asthma, cystic fibrosis or emphysema, which affect more than 35 million Americans and are the second leading cause of death worldwide. [su_spacer] Bone Marrow stem cells able to generate new lung tissue The treatment method proposed by scientists at the Weizmann Institute  is based on the similarities between stem cells that reside in the lungs and those in bone marrow. Bone marrow stem cells, when transplanted to a patient, manage to find their way through the blood and to navigate to the designated area where they differentiate. Acknowledging the similarities...

Adult tissues that serve as sources for stem cells

Where do adult stem cells come from? Adult stem cells receive much interest in the scientific community thanks to their ability to self-renew and generate numerous types of cells and tissues. There are two categories of stem cells: embryonic and adult. Unlike embryonic stem cells, which have the ability to differentiate into more than one cell type, most adult stem cells  are capable of forming only the types of tissue from which they originated. However, due to the controversy surrounding embryonic stem cell use, more and more researchers have turned their attention to the study of adult stem cells. As a result, we now know of several adult tissues that serve as sources for stem cells. This is great news for people who suffer from degenerative conditions like...

We may soon be able to heal autoimmune disorders with Stem Cells

Autoimmune disorders are conditions in which the sufferer’s body produces substances that attack the healthy cells of the organism, as it doesn’t distinguish between the healthy tissues and antigens. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune conditions known today, among which diabetes type 1, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, myasthenia gravis and multiple sclerosis. The exact cause of these ailments is unknown, but scientists believe that viruses, bacteria or certain drugs may trigger some internal changes that confuse the organism and cause the immune system to react by destroying the healthy tissues. Besides the damage caused to healthy cells, autoimmune conditions also lead to changes in organ function and may cause the abnormal growth of organs. These disorders may affect several tissues or organs,...

STANFORD RESEARCHERS ISOLATE SKELETAL STEM CELLS THAT GIVE RISE TO BONES AND CARTILAGE

Cartilage and bone deterioration are a common consequence of aging, but poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, excess weight or injury can also result in damaged tissue. Unlike bone tissue, mature cartilage is avascular and doesn’t heal well after injury. Replacement or augmentation surgery is one way to fix a torn joint, but the costs are high and there are also several risks involved in the procedure, such as transplant rejection and infection [1]. In January 2015, scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine published a paper regarding their latest findings in tissue engineering. With the use of skeletal stem cells (myoblasts), they have been able to give rise to bone and cartilage in mice. In addition, they mapped out the chemical signals which can create skeletal...
