Since the Dickey-Wicker amendment regarding stem cell research in the US, we’ve come a long way.
Once using stem cells solely for leukemia treatment and very limited research to now growing miniature brains that have similar brain wave activity as a forming preterm human in order to learn more about the brain.
Superman would be proud of how far we’ve come in the area of current stem cell research and therapy.
Check out the latest on current stem cell research advancements.
Current Stem Cell Research Healing Injuries
Stem cell research has been able to make leaps and bounds in injury and regenerative medicine. This can have serious treatment impact for patients who have suffered from :
- Sports Injury
- Muscle degeneration
- Spinal cord injury
- Brain injury
And now they have found tendon stem cells may be able to help tendons heal more quickly and effectively. This could have a huge impact on athletes, marathon runners, military, and those with aging or life injuries causing wear and tear on tendons.
Injured tendons rarely heal completely and return to their best strength and health. Stem cells can rejuvenate and help rehabilitate tendons to return to their full strength and health. This not only helps the tendon now but reduces the risk of injury in the future.
Editing Genes and Reprogramming Your System
Current stem cell research has made the exciting discovery that they may be able to skip the Petrie dish and introduce stem cell therapy right to the affected system. This can be a major factor in cutting down the time it takes to respond to therapy and for healing to start.
Illnesses will be less able to spread and get worse because stem cell therapy can be given more quickly and efficiently without the risk and delay of an outside environment being introduced.
Genomes can be changed and corrected permanently. Current research has shown a 60% effective response to this new method of introducing stem cell therapy.
Fast, Cheaper Cancer Care Because of Current Stem Cell Research
Research being done currently is going to lead to cheaper and more efficient and effective cancer treatment for many cancers.
Some of the cancers that may benefit from this advancement in research include:
- Blood cancers
- Breast cancer
- Melanomas and Lymphomas
- Prostate and Colorectal
The super sentinel cells that are being genetically engineered by the Intellistem team are expected to change not only how we treat these types of cancer but how patients respond and react during treatment. It will also bring costs down to a small percentage of what it is now to treat anyone of these malignancies without some of the toxic and potentially deadly toxins employed as standard treatment now.
Spinal Cord Injuries and Stem Cell Research
Stem cells have given many with spinal cord injuries hope that wasn’t possible just a few decades ago. As more research is done there are more patients around the world showing signs of promising rehabilitation.
Some of the research being done still requires several decades of testing and others are debated by the medical, legal, and general community with concerns of the ethics of stem cell research. This debate is healthy in keeping each researcher, and medical facility to a humane and ethical practice without causing harm.
Parkinsons Disease and Stem Cell Research
Stem cell research has been helping the lives of those suffering from Parkinson’s disease and could help ease the tremors and uncomfortable and degenerative symptoms of the disease.
There is research being done and breakthroughs being made in stem cell research around the world today.
More Research Means Endless Possibilities
The more current stem cell research that is performed and approved, the more possibilities we have. We can create treatments and medical interventions that could save and change lives.
