Stem cell treatments and research continue to evolve and expand with each passing day. There is a global, collaborative, scientific effort going on right now to help make significant strides in the advancement of disease treatment. Science Daily has reported many breakthroughs that have happened recently with stem cell treatments. These breakthroughs are exciting because it means that we are that much closer to curing many diseases and chronic illnesses through natural methods. See how stem cell treatments have made breakthroughs in creating healthy heart cells, understanding congenital diseases and healing the body!

 

What Are Stem Cells?

The International Society for Stem Cell Research describes stem cells as the foundation cells of our body. Stem cells help you every single day to repair your damaged tissues and cells. They are especially helpful when you have an injury and are cells that rush to the site to begin your healing. Every person has stem cells in their body and they are most abundant when you are born.

 

Think of a stem cell as a neutral cell in your body that can mold itself into any other type of cell that your body needs. If you have a muscle injury, stem cells can rush to the site of the injury and turn into the muscle cells you need to repair your body. They are generally tasked to heal injured ligaments, tendons, tissues and bones. You have stem cells at all times, but they lie latent in your body until they receive signals that your body has suffered an injury and needs to be repaired.

Stem Cell Treatments

There are many types of cells that go into stem cell treatments. Those different types are: adult (or tissue-specific) stem cells, amniotic stem cells, cord-blood stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, nuclear transfer-ES cells, and embryonic stem cells. We use many types of stem cells in our stem cell treatments except for embryonic stem cells. Stem cell treatments represent cutting-edge science and give hope to thousands of people with chronic medical conditions. Studies show that specialized cells help treat serious medical conditions from cancer to birth defects. The research that goes into these stem cell treatments help us discover how chronic conditions or diseases got their start and how we can help treat those conditions.

Breakthroughs with Stem Cell Treatments

  1. Britain Heart Foundation researchers have been working on a cure for heart failure by using stem cells to make new, healthy heart cells.
  2. Researchers are trying to produce beta cells artificially with the purpose of transplanting them to diabetic patients to regulate their blood sugar. If enough success is made through this research, it can be the first step to eliminating diabetes.
  3. The University of Copenhagen and Novo Nordisk published new research in the scientific journal Stem Cell Reports. This research provides a better understanding of how to improve the production of beta cells from human embryonic stem cells. By reprogramming skin cells into nerve cells, researchers at Karolinska Institute are creating cell models of the human brain.
  4. In a new study published in Molecular Psychiatry, the researchers describe how cells from patients with the severe developmental disease lissencephaly differ from healthy cells. The method can provide vital new knowledge on difficult-to-study congenital diseases and how to treat them.
  5. Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) study the effects of adult stem cells. They have found a new approach to the “reprogramming” of ordinary adult cells into stem cells. Their main study was published in an Advance Online paper in Nature Biotechnology. In it, the TSRI scientists screened a library of 100 million antibodies to see what they would do. They found several that can help reprogram mature skin-like cells into stem cells known as “induced pluripotent stem cells” (IPSCs).
  6. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in older adults. Scientists have long struggled to study and replicate key elements of the disease in the lab. A study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Thus study was developed by researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center. It is the first to demonstrate hallmarks of macular degeneration in a new human stem cell model.

 

A Better Life

If you could heal your body naturally without surgery, would you do it? Our goal is to utilize stem cells that you already have in your body to naturally help you heal. You can help your body regrow tissues, fight disease and rehabilitate itself. More and more research is being done each day on the effects of stem cell treatments in treating chronic diseases and conditions. Science is experiencing many breakthroughs in stem cell treatments and those accomplishments will keep happening.
