DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH! (DAM)!

What better way is there to celebrate DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH than to become more aware of the amazing advances and benefits of stem cell treatments for Diabetes?
  • ·DAM! – FIRST USE OF CORD BLOOD TO ALTER COURSE OF TYPE 1 DIABETES

June 25, 2007 – transfusion of stored, autologous (i.e. the person’s own), umbilical cord blood into a group of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes appears to have reduced their disease severity, possibly re-setting the immune system and slowing the destruction of their insulin-producing cells, according to a report presented today at the American Diabetes Association’s 67th Annual Scientific Sessions. (Proof the American Diabetes Association knew in 2007 that stem cells can treat Diabetes type 1 in children!) http://parentsguidecordblood.org/content/media/m_pdf/ADA_T1D_PR-06-25-07.pdf

  • DAM! – DIABETES TYPE 1 STEM CELL CLINICAL TRIAL

Enrollment 11/2003-4/2008, follow-up until December 2008 – C-Peptide Levels and Insulin Independence Following Autologous Nonmyeloablative Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in Newly Diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, JAMA. 2009;301(15):1573-1579.

Context In 2007, the effects of the autologous nonmyeloablative hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in 15 patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) were reported. Most patients became insulin free with normal levels of glycated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) during a mean 18.8-month follow-up. To investigate if this effect was due to preservation of beta-cell mass, continued monitoring was performed of C-peptide levels after stem cell transplantation in the 15 original and 8 additional patients. –  https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/09/14/type-1-diabetes-stem-cells-clinical-trial/

  • ·DAM! – CAN STEM CELLS CURE DIABETES TYPE 2?

  • ·DAM! – STEM CELLS TREAT DIABETES TYPE 1 SUCCESSFULLY FOR YEARS

People with type 1 diabetes who got stem cell transplants were able to go as long as four years without needing insulin treatments…the process involves injecting people with stem cells made from their bone marrow cells…appears to have a lasting effect.

The study involved patients with Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes, which occurs when the immune system goes haywire and starts attacking itself, destroying insulin-producing cells in the pancreas needed to control blood sugar.  These patients typically need daily insulin therapy to control their diabetes.

Dr. Richard Burt of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago and colleagues first reported on the short-term success of the procedure, known as autologous non-myeloablative hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation, in 2007 but have since looked at how long it persisted.

Writing in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association they said 20 of 23 patients “became insulin free — 12 continuously and eight transiently — for periods as long as four years.” The transient group of eight had to restart insulin at reduced levels. https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/stem-cell-transplants-help-type-1-diabetics-skip-insulin-health-reuters/

  • ·DAM! – STEM CELLS REVERSE DIABETES TYPE 1

In the new study, a follow-up of their previous work, Voltarelli and his colleagues detailed the same success with an additional eight patients, and also confirmed that in the majority of them, the stem cell transplant led to an appreciable repopulation of functioning insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas.https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/study-stem-cells-may-reverse-type-1-diabetes-time/

  • ·DAM! – MICE WERE CURED IN THE EARLY 1990’S…WHERE ARE THE HUMAN CLINICAL TRIAL FOR STEM CELLS vs. DIABETES?

Weissman, a professor of pathology and developmental biology at Stanford University, states: “Stem cells are rare, self-renewing, and can regenerate body tissues.” He repeatedly expressed frustration that while many of his discoveries seemed to hold remarkable potential for life-saving treatments, commercial or regulatory hurdles have prevented his scientific research from benefiting human beings. One example is, his mid-’90s research on type I diabetes, in which he demonstrated the ability to fully cure type I diabetes in mice using stem cells. Even though the experiments avoided political controversy by using adult/repair stem cells, which do not come from embryos, Weissman ran into a road block when pharmaceutical companies refused to sponsor clinical trials. The therapy went nowhere. “The pharmaceutical companies had put profit over principle, preferring to keep diabetes sufferers dependent on costly insulin than to cure them once and for all.” – https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/09/13/research-from-90s-cures-type-1-diabetes/

  • ·DAM! – 85% OF DIABETES TYPE 1 PATIENTS IMPROVED

A study demonstrated that stem cells implanted into type 2 diabetes patients, in direct form into the pancreas, improve the production of Endogenous Insulin, increase the levels of “C Peptide”, decrease blood glucose levels and glycated hemoglobin levels faster than other treatments. 84% of the patients that had received the autologuous bone marrow cells could also abandon the drugs that stimulate insulin production or the insulin that they had been receiving previously.  There were no complications at all, demonstrating the safety of the technique, since the extraction, the cellular implants and evolution of the patients… – CATCH UP…with a twist!
