Bone Marrow Concentrate Improves Joint Transplants

Biologic joint restoration using donor tissue instead of traditional metal and plastic may be an option for active patients with joint defects. Although recovery from a biologic joint repair is typically longer than traditional replacement, successful biologic restoration allows patients to return to full activity. However, in some cases, the transplanted bone does not heal

Newcastle Children’s Bone Marrow Transplant Unit discover new treatment

Photo:Newcastle’s Children’s Bone Marrow Transplant Unit have discovered a pioneering new treatment to tackle complications that can arise from stem cell transplants. The new procedure will tackle GVHD, an often fatal complication of stem cell transplantation, when the transplanted cells attack the patient. The breakthrough came after all typical treatments for GVHD on a child

Bone Marrow-on-a-chip Unveiled

Tue, 05/06/2014 - 12:16pm The latest organ-on-a-chip from Harvard's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering reproduces the structure, functions and cellular make-up of bone marrow, a complex tissue that until now could only be studied intact in living animals, Institute researchers report in an online issue of Nature Methods. The device, dubbed "bone marrow-on-a-chip," gives

Interview with Dr. Charles Cox on New Stem Cell Trial for Cerebral Palsy

Knoepfler Lab Stem Cell Blog, by Paul Knoepfler ~ December 16, 2013 Dr. Charles Cox at the University of Texas (UT) Health Science Center at Houston is starting a new stem cell-based clinical trial for the treatment of young children with cerebral palsy (CP). There is an urgent need for the development of new treatments

Research Supports Promise of Cell Therapy for Bowel Disease

Feb. 28, 2013 - by Karen Richardson WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and colleagues have identified a special population of adult stem cells in bone marrow that have the natural ability to migrate to the intestine and produce intestinal cells, suggesting their potential to restore healthy tissue in patients with

Distinct Niches in Bone Marrow Nurture Blood Stem Cells

Feb. 24, 2013 — Science Daily - In research that could one day improve the success of stem cell transplants and chemotherapy, scientists have found that distinct niches exist in bone marrow to nurture different types of blood stem cells.   Distinct niches exist in bone marrow to nurture different types of blood stem cells, new

SLU doctor praises transplant center but says finding outpatient caregivers can be issue

By Robert Joiner, Beacon staff 12:27 am on Wed, 01.02.13 The doctor in charge of the division of hematology and oncology at Saint Louis University sees both opportunities and challenges in the school's new comprehensive outpatient bone marrow transplant center, the first in the region. Dr. Frederich Schuening says the center, which opened Dec. 4, is a

Using Bone Marrow to Protect the Brain: Stem Cell Technology Begins Clinical Trial for Lou Gehrig’s Disease

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 By: Science Daily The ability to produce neuroprotectors, proteins that protect the human brain against neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and ALS, is the holy grail of brain research. A technology developed at Tel Aviv University does just that, and it's now out of the lab and in hospitals to begin
