PRP (PEE R PEE?): THE POWER OF URINE DERIVED STEM CELLS

In 2006, scientists discovered that it was possible to isolate stem cells found within urine and use them to differentiate into different types of autologous cells. When you put aside your natural revulsion, you can see that these types of stem cells have a variety of benefits, since harvesting them is as easy as filling a cup We are now seeing the fruits of this stem cell research into urine derived stem cells. In the past year, there have been a new frontier of stem cell studies into [...]

3 REVOLUTIONARY STEM CELL STUDIES ON THE HORIZON

Every day, scientists are working to make the future better by testing the reaches of the almost limitless potential of stem cells. It seems like every there's constantly news about the latest advances in stem cell research, but here are the three upcoming stem cells studies we think you should keep your eyes out for. SAVING THE NORTHERN WHITE RHINO WITH STEM CELL RESEARCH The staff at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research are gearing up for a stem cell studystraight out of Jurassic Park. They plan [...]

STEM CELLS, PRP & SPORT INJURY: THE BEST METHOD OF RECOVERY?

In 2011, Indiana Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had to sit out the whole season due to a serious neck injury that required two major surgeries to treat. While the Colts released Manning during his recovery, he made his return to the field in 2012 with the Denver Broncos with a stunning comeback season that saw him make 37 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, earning him the title of NFL Comeback Player of the Year. He would go on to play three more seasons with the Broncos, crowning his final [...]

MSCS AND WEIGHT LOSS: READY FOR HUMAN TRIALS?

The diet industry makes billions of dollars a year feeding off people's insecurities with scientifically dubious medications and nutritional regimes. Even methods that are successful in causing weight loss are ultimately proven futile because the subject reverts back to old habits and regains the weight. However, a number of stem cell research studies in animals over the years have found that mesenchymal stem cells (or MSCs) have the capacity to fight obesity with regenerative medicine, because in a way, they're part of the problem. MSCs develop into adipocyte, [...]

HOW PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS CAN HELP PREDICT DISEASE

The human genome might be mapped, but there are still many spots that say "Here be Dragons," especially when you try to determine if variants found in genetic sequencing will lead to diseases. However, a novel study from the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute has found a way to narrow down genetic "variants of uncertain significance" to find out just what kind of health problems they can cause, by using induced pluripotent stem cells. WHAT ARE PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS AND IPSCS? Pluripotent stem cells are the most dynamic types of [...]
