Purified stem cells restore muscle in mice with MD

http://www.sciencecentric.com/news/arti ... q=08071411

By injecting purified stem cells isolated from adult skeletal muscle, researchers have shown they can restore healthy muscle and improve muscle function in mice with a form of muscular dystrophy. Those muscle-building stem cells were derived from a larger pool of so-called satellite cells that normally associate with mature muscle fibres and play a role in muscle growth and repair.

In addition to their contributions to ...

Adult stem cells reprogrammed in the brain

Adult stem cells reprogrammed in the brain, hopes for diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis
01 July 2008

In recent years, stem cell researchers have become very adept at manipulating the fate of adult stem cells cultured in the lab. Now, researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies achieved the same feat with adult neural stem cells still in place in the brain.

They successfully coaxed mouse brain stem cells bound to join the neuronal ...

Salk research

An interesting bit in the article is:

"the immune system attacks oligodendrocytes"

I've seen this theory elsewhere. I'm not sure if it means at the same time as the attacks on the myelin sheath, or rather that the destruction of the oligodendrocytes leads to problems with the myelin sheath which then leads to further attacks ??????????

Harvard researchers find how to turn on brain stem cells

I, for one, welcome our new mice overlords.

http://www.bizjournals.com/masshightech ... ily60.html

Harvard Medical School scientists have discovered molecules in the brain that can turn stem cells into neurons and repair damaged tissue, which could lead to new treatments for such conditions as Alzheimer's disease and spinal cord injuries.

The research behind the discovery was done at Harvard's Schepens Eye Research Institute, where scientists found that stem cells are ubiquitous ...

Another myelin disease

Not MS but disease involving myelin, involves mice, but shows some promise.

Cord Blood

If you had children fairly recently, did you choose to save the cord blood?

Why or why not? Would you with future children?

I confess I know very little about stem cells and MS, but I am intrigued by the possibility of doing this with my future children.

Stem Cell Therapies

I spent less than 20k in Thailand, here is the letter I sent them when I got home.

Thank you for the medical care that I received during the stem cell procedure in Bangkok, Thailand. The doctors were the highest professional level. The science was advance. Your team's gentleness and care made it much easier than I experienced in any other medical or hospital facility outside Thailand.

I must admit that at first I had ...
