Stem cells as Cyclosporin

Transplantation is the act of transferring an organ, tissue, or cell from one body to another. Cell transplant (referred to hereby as stem cell transplant) is a process which involves either replacing diseased or ineffective tissue with healthy new stem cells. The two most common types of stem cell transplants are autologous or allogenic transplants. Both transplantation procedures are a common treatment option for treating cancers such as Leukemia, Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma.

Stem cells in personalizing implants

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stromal stem cells that can be harvested from many different sources and differentiated into a variety of cell types. The effectiveness of MSCs based therapies is dependent on a gamut of factors which include differentiating state of the MSCs at the site of application, vehicle used and the nature/extent of injury. Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, coupled with genetic engineering and gene therapy are revolutionizing the way cell therapy is performed these days.

Stem cells: Mankind’s answer to Prometheus’ vulture

Prometheus is a Titan in Greek Mythology, best known as the creator of mankind and it’s greatest benefactor. He transgressed the law of gods and stole fire from Mount Olympus for the sake of humankind, for which he received a brutal punishment from Jupiter. Jupiter had him chained to mount Caucasus, where a vulture would prey on his liver daily. Legend has it that his liver renewed as quickly as it was devoured, which captures the body’s remarkable regenerative capacity.

Stem cells: The hope and the hype

Everyone irrespective of their background seems to be talking about stem cells these days. Stem cells have garnered much attention because they can turn into all different types of cells and that too on demand. While the implications for the use of stem cells in medicine are profound, there are still a lot of practical barriers that need to be streamlined for realizing the full potential of stem cells as therapeutic tools.

Nano Dimension Announces New 3D Bioprinting Subsidiary to Develop Solutions for end Stage Renal Disease

3D printing has been touted as one of the most disruptive technologies that have been making waves during the 21st century. Despite some initial negative press about the technology, it has been quickly catching up generating a lot of buzz in the industry and general public alike. 3D printing is also called additive manufacturing wherein three dimensional solid objects are produced by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. The ease of access to 3D templates, scanners, modeling software and printers that can print 3D objects has made our lives much easier.

Stem Cells for Muscular Dystrophies

An orphan disease is a rare disease (according to US criteria, a disease that affects fewer than 200,000 people) or a common disease that has been ignored. But, the true definition not known by many is that a disease category that has not been taken up by any pharmaceutical industry to research on as it provides little financial incentive for the private sector to make and market medicines to treat or cure.

Stem Cell Biology As Century Of Biology For Drug Discovery In Neurological Disorders

Stem Cell Biology As Century Of Biology For Drug Discovery In Neurological Disorders
New revelations into the biology of stem cells have raised expectations for their use in the treatment of neurologic diseases. Formerly, stem cell transplantation was promulgated as tools of replacing cells in central nervous system indicating that transplanted stem cells may decrease deleterious inflammation as well and improve endogenous recovery processes.

Brain stroke and the role of stem cells in treating it

In the United States alone, some 800,000 people suffer from a brain stroke each year and close to 7 million are chronic stroke patients. With a population of 1.5 billion the burden of stroke on Indian society is considered to be significant. Increasing incidences of lifestyle diseases like diabetes and hypertension are also triggers for stroke in men and women.

Gene therapy has allowed for autologous HSC transplant in PID

The human body, having deployed its white blood cells (WBCs) to the battleground, is in a state of perpetual war against microbes, foreign substances and potentially neoplastic cells. A subset of WBCs survey the the entire body through tunnels called blood vessels or guard specific tissues and provide constant reassurance of safety. Together, they form one of the strongest components of the immune system and are well equipped to handle pathogens that may have breached the primary barriers of defence, such as skin. A defect in the development of these cells would leave the body unprotected and susceptible to various infections.

Patient derived Stem cell based xenograft models in drug discovery

The success of targeted therapies for a number of diseases including cancer rests on three major components: the right target(s), the right drug and drug combination, and the right patient population. Although much progress has been made in understanding the mechanism of disease and in reļ¬ning pharmaceutical properties of therapeutic agents, the attrition rates between target discovery and drug marketing approval have been high, especially in Oncology.

Advantages of patient derived stem cells

Stem cells are the body’s cardinal cells. They are responsible for our natural ability to repair common injury. They have intrinsic capabilities of both replicating themselves as well as differentiating into other types of cells. Despite not being identical, stem cells have widely differing abilities.
