Mesenchymal stem cells

I saw this article title in Pubmed:

Regeneration of myelin in multiple sclerosis. The role of mesenchymal cells in such regeneration and in myelin formation in the peripheral nervous system.

Sounds pretty interesting to me. It's the kind of article that is relevant to the mesenchymal stem cell research that's being done today. The source of the article?

Neurology. 1966 Apr;16(4):364-72.

Yes, 1966!


Anyhow, I was digging around for info on ...

UK stem cell early trial for MS

Dear all,

One of the UK's leading lights looking at stem cell therapies for MS is Professor Neil Scolding who is based in Bristol, England. He has been doing work for a number of years and is being funded by the UK MS Society. It now looks as if the first human trial using bone-marrowed derived stem cells has started at Bristol. It is early days, but this is a bona fide trial - not ...

neurons from embryonic stem cells

Another good step in the process of figuring out stem cells:



Functioning Neurons From Human Embryonic Stem Cells Produced

10 August 2007 -- Scientists with the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Medicine at UCLA were able to produce from human embryonic stem cells a highly pure, large quantity of functioning neurons that will allow them to create models of and study diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, prefrontal dementia and schizophrenia, etc.

Researchers ...

Mesenchymal stem cell trial results

I didn't think the first clinical trial results on mesenchymal stem cell therapy would come from Iran, but I'm glad they are pushing MS research along.



Does mesenchymal stem cell therapy help multiple sclerosis patients? Report of a pilot study.

Israel Center for MS treatment

Hi I've been hearing that a lot of people with MS have been having treatment in Israel (the same as the one they were having in Holland but with more success). Does anyone have any information about this? (experience, phone numbers, web address, etc)

McMaster claims stem-cell breakthrough


Discovery important to cancer research, repairing damaged organs
Jul 11, 2007 01:15 PM

Staff Reporter

A landmark discovery by researchers at McMaster University could radically alter the way scientists can use embryonic stem cells to grow replacement tissues and treat cancer.

In a surprise revelation, a McMaster study found that human embryonic stem cells – “the great grandmothers” of all the other cells in our ...

Hearts

Not MS, but there are so many bone-marrow stem cell treatments in trial (by bona fide clinics) that the turn of MS is coming (there are trials planned / possibly underway in the UK for MS).

Spinal Cord

A company called Geron is getting ready to submit an IND (investingastional, (sp) new drug)in the 4th quarter of '07. This will be the first use of embryonic stem cells in humans. Mice and rats are already walking. How will this effect us? Neurons are being formed and remyelination has occured in animal testing.

To much for me to type, But hope for a cure is getting closer.

If I read correctly, it's not that ...

I like monkeys

I like monkeys, but this research looks very interesting and it gives the poor old mice a day off.
