Can Stem Cells from teeth make brain like cells? - Total Biopharma : Total Biopharma | Stem Cells & Cell Culture | Scoop.it
Freya Smale's insight:

Researchers from the University of Adelaide have discovered that stem cells taken from teeth have the potential to develop in cells that resemble those of the brain. This has ignited hope for future therapies and cures for brain damage, diseases and also stroke.

 

Studies undertaken by the researchers at the University provide evidence that stem cells from teeth can mimic the complex networks of brain cells. These cells have not yet developed into neurons, researchers believe it could be possible to create the right conditions for this further development. Dr Ellis and her team’s research has been published in the journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy.


“Stem cells from teeth have great potential to grow into new brain or nerve cells, and this could potentially assist with treatments of brain disorders, such as stroke,” says Dr Kylie Ellis, Commercial Development Manager with the University’s commercial arm, Adelaide Research & Innovation (ARI). “The reality is, treatment options available to the thousands of stroke patients every year are limited,” Dr Ellis says. “The primary drug treatment available must be administered within hours of a stroke and many people don’t have access within that time frame, because they often can’t seek help for some time after the attack.” - Read the full article here: http://neurosciencenews.com/teeth-stem-cells-neurons-1006/ ;

 

The ultimate goal of this research is to be able to use a patient’s own stem cells to develop a tailor-made brain therapy. This would minimize the chances of rejection.

Stem Cells Regenerate Heart Muscle in New Study- read the full article here

 

A team of researchers based at the University of Washington are conducting into whether or not stem cells can regenerate heart muscle. This study published inNature earlier this week has presented an opportunity to develop a new treatment for heart problems.

 

Could heart transplant become obsolete?

At any one time, hundreds of thousands of patients around the world are on a waiting list for a heart transplant. Invasive surgery is a last resort for many. With a surgery time of often 4-6 hours and a minimum recovery time of several months, heart transplant is time consuming and taxing for the patient. Surgery of this type is also not without serious risk- getting through this intense surgery puts a lot of strain on the human body and there is also risk of rejection. Dr. Chuck Murry’s team are now one step closer to the development of a treatment that could make transplant obsolete. Through the injection of human embryonic stem cells into the hearts of 5 macaques (a type of monkey), the team witnessed lost heart muscle regenerate. Approximately a billion stem cells were injected into each monkey’s heart.

 

“Scientists knew stem cells could regenerate heart tissue in rodents, but macaques (which are a type of monkey) are closer to humans in their size, physiology, and heart rate. Whereas a rat’s heart beats 400 times per minute, a macaque’s beats 115 times per minute, much closer to a human’s 70 beats per minute. Carrying out the experiments on primates “is truly a major achievement,” says Richard Lee, who studies cardiac regeneration at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (he wasn’t involved in the current study).” - read more here


“This study, which Murry called “proof of concept” that stem cells can regenerate heart muscle, did not look at whether grafts strengthen the heart’s ability to pump blood. The team’s earlier studies using similar techniques in smaller animals did show improvement in the heart’s function, and there was some indication that was true for some of the monkeys.” - read morehere.
