Can I Get Stem Cells From My Own Fat
Yes important source: Use of adult mesenchymal stem-stromal cells (mscs) are currently in clinical trial in us/internationally. Trend is toward use of fat derived mscs, havested by liposuction, isolated and concentrated in tissue culture. Early reports suggest significant improvement in neurological, autoimmune and organ functions. Many more mscs in fat than bone marrow making ad-msc the center of most research now. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Embroynic cells: In short, under a microscope the embryo is transferred to a gentle solution containing electrolytes and some enzymes, and then the resultant single cells dilluted to the point of plating one cell (or several depending on the experimental design). The cells are grown to almost confluence, and this is called p1. After trypsinization, the cells are replated (p2) and so on. ...Read more
Tech is in developmt: You only get one shot at collecting & preserving umbilical cord stem cells & some centers collect them routinely.There use at present is limited in scope.Research is ongoing to use them for specific diseases, to manufacture spare body parts, etc. Within the child's lifetime there may be a number of possibilities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Any promising results on stem cells studies for degenerative disc disease? If so, when do u think it will get approved by fda?
Stem cells : There are several promising studies and research projects that are working with stem cells to restore cartilage in joints such as hips, knees and discs in the spine. The first step to fda approval is to show safety, then efficacy. This process can take many years. Some studies in others countries may yeild results sooner. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Information: The best way to prepare is to understand the procedure and potential risks and side effects. Usually your transplant center will have information booklets or videos that explain the procedure. There is a free downloadable resource from nbmt link at: http://www.Nbmtlink.Org/resources_support/rg/index.Htm. ...Read more
Yes: Mostly hematopoietic (blood) cells and a few mesenchymal (mscs) can be obtained from bone marrow aspiration. Trends in most non-blood applications is to use fat tissues, which have many more mscs that bone marrow. Choice of which depends on specific conditions being treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Only in research: We are in the infancy of this approach, but a few medical centers are looking at this and if interested, contact a nearby medical school or the national institutes of health. ...Read more
Ask your surgeon: There are a number of companies who can process teeth and provide storage of the tissue for potential stem cell therapy. Many dental offices and oral surgery offices can provide you with the necessary information during your consultation appointment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can stem cells be extracted from bone marrow. And with that can diabetes type II get any better! thanks?
Second part easy: at most only slightly better. The fundamental problem in type TWO diabetes isnt lack of insulin (typically the insulin level is elevated) it is unresponsiveness/resistance to insulin. So, if the insulin secreting cells were increased, nothing would happen from it. Sometimes, the insulin secreting cells are exhausted in type II but still, with the resistance, inceaeing the number wont help. ...Read more
When the spermatogonial stem cell get mutated by chemicals, if the mutated sperm fertilize the egg, will the child have de novo genetic defect?
How do I get the statistics for high risk myeloma stem cell transplant results. Autologous transplant.
If your kidneys are working at 60% 7years after a stem cell transplant is there any preventative treatment so it doesn't get worse?
See a nephrologist.: 60% kidney function is more than adequate, but is significantly reduced enough to warrant referral to a kidney doctor (nephrologist). The reason for the kidney disease can't be determined with what you shared, but may be related to the heme-onc disorder (tumor lysis, amyloidosis, multiple myeloma, etc.) or chemotherapy? A nephrologist can help with strategies to keep the kidney function optimal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im on dialysis, kidney failure, live donor same blood type, expearment, trick kidney with stem cells and bone marrow, how would i go about it.Get apointmet?
Check Internet: You should search online for info on centers engaged in this research. Can also visit: http://www.Nationalstemcellfoundation.Org/list-of-treatable-conditions/kidney-transplant/ which has link to research trials and can be a starting point to see which university/research centers are participating. ...Read more
Stem cell therapy: It involves the use of stem or pluripotent cells that, under the proper triggers, can grow into many different cell types. Stem cells are transplanted to replace damaged cells or tissues in the body that are unable to heal themselves. While this type of therapy does offer hope, it is mostly investigational at this time and very few stem cell therapies have been proven to be both safe and effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Definition stem cell: All humans first start as a fertilized ovum, which is totipotent ("potential to become every cell"). After several days, it grows into an embryo, comprised of embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are still very unspecialized, and are described as being pluripotent ("potential to become a wide variety of cells"). Adult stem cells are multipotent ("a limited potential for differentiation"}. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
