The therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stem cell vesicles could be increased tenfold

In a new study, scientists at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) have maximized the production of extracellular vesicles by simply changing the way donor mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are cultured. This method opens up new possibilities for research in cell therapy using transplantation of stem cells or immune cells obtained from patients or donors.

The recently discovered subpopulation of mesenchymal stem cells will accelerate the healing of fractures

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have tremendous potential in regenerative medicine, the goal of which is to repair damaged tissues. However, until now, not much has been known about their in vivo plasticity.

Researchers at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, have found a subpopulation of MSCs that promote bone fracture regeneration and exhibit an increased ability to differentiate into various cell types.

Stem cell therapy relieves symptoms of various types of muscular dystrophies

Research on the compassionate use of perivascular umbilical cord tissue (Wharton’s jelly) mesenchymal stem cells (WJ-MSCs) has shown promising results in treating muscular dystrophies. Under the guidance of physicians at the Centrum Medyczne Klara, KMC, Czestochowa, Poland, this procedure significantly improved certain muscle groups in most patients without any severe side effects.

Stem cell therapy can help cope with HIV

In a groundbreaking new study, a group of scientists from the University of California, Davis, found that a specific type of stem cell can reduce the virus that causes AIDS, increase the body’s antiviral immunity, and repairing lymphoid follicles in the intestines damaged by the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), the equivalent of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in non-human primates.
