Can the damaged brain repair itself?

Can the damaged brain repair itself? | Medical Science and Stem Cell Therapy Research | Scoop.it
After a traumatic brain injury, it sometimes happens that the brain can repair itself, building new brain cells to replace damaged ones. But the repair doesn't happen quickly enough to allow recovery from degenerative conditions like motor neuron disease (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or ALS). Siddharthan Chandran walks through some new techniques using special stem cells that could allow the damaged brain to rebuild faster.
Okyanos Cell Therapy's insight:

A fascinating and informative TED talk outlining the potential of cell therapy and regenerative medicine to repair the damaged brain.

 

In terms simple enough for the layperson to understand, regenerative neurologist Siddarthan Chandran walks you through the process of how brain cells become damaged, what this means for the quality of life of a patient and what his hopes are for the future of this arm of medicine. 


Simply put, "The day we might be able to repair the damaged brain is sooner than we think."

Stem cell therapy could lead to HIV cure

Stem cell therapy could lead to HIV cure | Medical Science and Stem Cell Therapy Research | Scoop.it
Two teams of scientists with strong ties to the Bay Area are racing to develop a stem cell therapy that would provide a practical cure for people living with HIV infection, leaving them with an immune system capable of keeping them healthy without daily medication even as some virus remains circulating in their bloodstream. Both groups of researchers are trying to capitalize on the DNA of so-called elite controllers - people who are naturally resistant to HIV due to a genetic mutation that prevents the virus from latching on to their immune cells. "If you could make a person's immune system mutated in a way that HIV could not infect it, then you may be able to cure the HIV," said Dr. John Zaia, a virologist with the Beckman Research Institute near Los Angeles, who's working with Sangamo Biosciences in Richmond on a technique to engineer and transplant stem cells. Nearly 10 years ago, when Timothy Brown needed a bone marrow transplant to treat his newly diagnosed leukemia, his doctor in Berlin decided to attempt an experiment, and chose a donor who was known to be an elite controller. In a bone marrow transplant, stem cells from the donor replace the patient's own stem cells and build a new immune system. [...] bone marrow transplants are risky procedures - patients can die from rejection of the donor cells or from infection while their immune system is rebuilt from scratch. In theory, once the stem cells are implanted in the patients again, they'll be able to indefinitely replenish the immune system, and no further transplants or other treatments would be necessary. Because scientists don't plan to destroy the patients' old immune system before transplanting the engineered stem cells, patients would continue to make cells that are vulnerable to HIV. [...] the hope is that enough of the HIV-resistant cells will be produced that the body will be able to mount an immune response to fight the virus and keep it in check - providing what's called a "functional" cure, in which the virus remains but doesn't cause damage. Ideal therapyIdeally, doctors would like to see a therapy in which patients are given a single injection that causes their stem cells to be re-engineered in the body, without having to be removed and treated in a lab.
