CellNEWS: Scientists Learn How Stem Cell Implants Help Heal Traumatic Brain Injury

In VICTORIES & SUCCESS STORIES on January 22, 2012 at 9:20 am

“In this study, we found that our stem cell transplantation both prevents further axonal injury and promotes axonal regrowth, through a number of previously unknown molecular mechanisms.”

Scientists Learn How Stem Cell Implants Help Heal Traumatic Brain Injury  
Friday, 13 January 2012

For years, researchers seeking new therapies for traumatic brain injury have been tantalized by the results of animal experiments with stem cells. In numerous studies, stem cell implantation has substantially improved brain function in experimental animals with brain trauma. But just how these improvements occur has remained a mystery.

Now, an important part of this puzzle has been pieced together by researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. In experiments with both laboratory rats and an apparatus that enabled them to simulate the impact of trauma on human neurons, they identified key molecular mechanisms by which implanted human neural stem cells — stem cells that are in the process of developing into neurons but have not yet taken their final form — aid recovery from traumatic axonal injury.
A significant component of traumatic brain injury, traumatic axonal injury involves damage to axons and dendrites, the filaments that extend out from the bodies of the neurons. The damage continues after the initial trauma, since the axons and dendrites respond to injury by withdrawing back to the bodies of the neurons.
“Axons and dendrites are the basis of neuron-to-neuron communication, and when they are lost, neuron function is lost,” said UTMB professor Ping Wu, lead author of a paper on the research appearing in the Journal of Neurotrauma.

“In this study, we found that our stem cell transplantation both prevents further axonal injury and promotes axonal regrowth, through a number of previously unknown molecular mechanisms.”

Can MS be treated with stem cells?

I did some digging and would like to present the preliminary results to answer the question:

Can MS be treated with stem cells?

http://www.msconnections.org/ms-myelin.gifSOME MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS CLINICAL TRIALS

  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for multiple sclerosis – 2002 clinical trial based on data collected from TWENTY medical institutes around the world.  Conclusion: Autologous HSCT suggest positive early results in the management of progressive MS and is feasible – http://www.springerlink.com/content/1b19ldgyecqvny3w/
  • Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, Sep 16, 1999  These results appear better than those achieved by any other treatment of progressive multiple sclerosis, including beta-interferon… – http://www.springerlink.com/index/H6X0866N90633266.pdf
  • “Dose of stem cells reverses some MS” - January 31, 2009 – STUDY – “A dose of their own stem cells “reset” the malfunctioning immune system of patients with early-stage multiple sclerosis and, for the first time, reversed their disability, according to researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago. Three years after being treated, on average, 17 of the 21 patients had improved on tests, suffering fewer problems with their balance or vision, 16 had experienced no relapse, and none had deteriorated.  This marks the first “reversal” of neurologic loss caused by this disease, says Richard Burt of Northwestern University in Chicago.

Can MS be treated with stem cells?

You decide. Here are 11 articles from my blog,  28,000 from google news and there are a total of 20 clinical trials from clinicaltrials.gov

NEW MS TREATMENT INFO!!!

In BEST OF THE BEST on October 6, 2011 at 1:02 am

NEW MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS TREATMENT INFO!!!!

For those interested, I just received 13 pages of Stem Cell Treatments of MS info. There is editing and translation and I am trying to get fully substantiated results for these treatments. I will have it to those of you who are interested shortly.
