Mumbai: Thanks to stem cell therapy a 24-year-old engineering student who was crippled due to Multiple Sclerosis has started to walk again.
Washington: A team led by David Mooney, a core faculty member at Harvard’s Wyss Institute, has developed a strategy that has experimentally improved bone repair by boosting the survival rate of transplanted stem cells and influencing their cell differentiation. The method embeds stem cells into porous, transplantable hydrogels.
New Delhi (IANS): Though there are many stem cell therapies that are being explored, bone marrow transplant is the only one which has been tried and tested, a noted scientist has said.
Washington: Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have pinpointed why normal aging is accompanied by a diminished ability to regain strength and mobility after muscle injury: Over time, stem cells within muscle tissues dedicated to repairing damage become less able to generate new muscle fibres and struggle to self-renew.
Bangalore: In what could signal a leap forward in the treatment of spinal cord injuries, the Bangalore Institute of Regenerative Medicine at Live 100 Hospital claims to have successfully used stem cell therapy to restore feeling to people paralysed by injuries, accidents or natural causes.
New Delhi: With advances in stem cell technology giving promising results in many areas, the field of Dentistry is no more a stranger to this advancement. Latest in the field is the “SealBio” technique, which has been developed by researchers at the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, Centre for Dental Education and Research at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi and is based on “regenerative concept” to manage pulp and periapically involved teeth.
Washington: A growing number of Americans are travelling to India to seek treatment for rare diseases through India’s experimental embryonic stem cell therapy, according to an investigative report.
New Delhi: Sportspersons who were earlier dependent on knee-replacement therapy for athletic injuries now have a new ray of hope in the form of Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI), which reduces the recovery time, doctors said here on Wednesday.
