Relieving Painful Knees Through Stem Cell Restoration

The knee joint is known to be the largest joint in our body. This joint is made up of four bones, the Fibula, and Patella (Knee Caps), the Tabia (Shin), and the Femur (Thigh Bone). These joints support the weight of the body, so what happens when the joint that holds your the upper half of your body gets damaged? …

Relieving Hip and Hip-Joint Pain Through Stem Cell Replacement Therapy

Stem Cell Replacement Therapy is still in its early stages, yet it is shown nothing but positive results over the years. Stem cells are the cells in our body that can reproduce and multiply certain types of cells on the body. These cells provide us with faster healing and regeneration. Plus, it is less invasive involving only an injection and …

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

What are induced pluripotent stem cells? Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are adult cells which have been genetically reprogrammed to an embryonic stem cell–such as state by being made to express genes and factors important for keeping the defining properties of embryonic stem cells. Though these cells satisfy the defining criteria for pluripotent stem cells, it is not known if …

Primer on Embryonic Stem Cells

Most embryonic stem cells are derived from embryos that develop from eggs which were fertilized at in-vitro–at an in-vitro fertilization practice –then donated for research purposes with informed consent of the donors. How Are They Cultivated in a Lab? Growing cells in the lab is called mobile culture. Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are made by moving cells in the …

Research on Adult Stem Cells

The stem cell may renew itself and may differentiate to yield all the significant cell kinds of their tissue or organ or a few. Contrary to embryonic stem cells, that can be characterized by their source (cells in the preimplantation-stage embryo), the source of adult stem cells within certain older cells remains under investigation. Research on stem cells has generated …

What exactly are stem cells, and why are they significant?

Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into a variety of cell types within the body through early life and development. Additionally, in most tissues they function as a type of internal repair system, dividing basically without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still living. Stem cells have been distinguished by other …
