Please place in this topic only cells, tissues, organs, or whatever stem technologies, that already have been used on people.

 

Don't post studies on rats, or whatever other animals. Lets focus only to human beings in this topic.

 

Please also don't show things, that will be tried soon, or in the future. Lets see what already has been done.

 

If you know of some stem cells technology, or a stem cells way to cure or to heal something, IN HUMANS, that has been TRIED, please post it.

 

Post also your opinion of the listed technologies and medical aproaches. If you have been tried some stem cell treatment, please, give your feed-back.

 

 

 

Here are the stem cells technologies, used on pleople, that I know of. Add yours, or comment.

More than 100 views, no replies. Whats going on, people? Stem cells are very important for living forever. Don't you have an interest in them? You want to be immortal, so I don't think so. Or maybe it appears, that we know about the stem cells much less, than we think, and especially in the most important part - their usage on people. Maybe you can't comment even a word for their practical application. That's very bad. Even if you don't know other stem cells technologies, being tried on people, you may bother to find a scientific study about some of the above, or comment if you think, that it is not as good as it sounds, or try to find and contact some one who used them for his/her condition.

The bone marrow transplantation can be viewed also as stem cells transplantation.

 

Here is another stem cell technology used on human:

to repair heart damage.

 

http://www.nytimes.c...pe=article&_r=0

 

The article also places a lot of skepticism.

In the article is cited a cardiovascular pathologist, named Dr. Murry, who have said, that, very few therapies beyond bone marrow transplants have been shown to be effective, and that “Almost every one of these places are charlatans.”

Let me say something crazy... (I also like the benefits of stem cells and at some point I thought to do this).

Why dont you learn how to cultivate stem cells; thats means get a few from your body (adipose tissue) and then cultivate so them can reproduce faster.

In a few weeks you can get an ammount of stem cells that can take years to be produced at your body.

Then you put this cells in your body...

(you must make some papers researchs to see if this is safe, of course)

I don't have even a clue how the stem cells can be recognized. Even if I take some piece of tissue from me, how can I extract the stem cells. Plus I don't know how to grow them and how to make them divide. I am so far away from this knowledge, that I am not sure if I can make a stem cells research at all. I want to do stem cells researches, though. But have no info how.

That one is interesting. It seems, that using our muscles stimulates the muscle stem cells to produce new muscle tissue

 

http://www.ahealthbl...ur-muscles.html

 

This is a natural method of stem cells stimulation, that always has been infrontof our eyes. And it is completely logical. People, who sport develop big muscle mass actually. This explains also hy people, who sport suffer less from heart damage - the heart is also a muscle. We may suggest, that training it regularly does not makes it hypertrophy, but instead makes its stem cells to repair it.

Some blood vessels, made by stem cells:

 

http://www.futuretim...tm#.VMUBwSwpq9f

 

" .... Two tablespoons of blood are all that is needed to grow a brand new blood vessel in just seven days. ... Three patients, all young children, were missing a vein ...
So far, the team has treated three patients. Two of the three are still doing well and have veins that are functioning as they should. In the third case, the child is under medical surveillance and the outcome is more uncertain. The team is confident they can make further progress. ... "

 

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, I feel somewhat strange. This should be a hot topic. People should read, comment, try to find the scientific articles. Instead it is almost only me posting things from time to time.

Another method of a vein produced and transplanted successfully in human via stem cells.

  " Methods

A 10 year old girl with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction was admitted to the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, for a bypass procedure between the superior mesenteric vein and the intrahepatic left portal vein (meso Rex bypass). A 9 cm segment of allogeneic donor iliac vein was decellularised and subsequently recellularised with endothelial and smooth muscle cells differentiated from stem cells obtained from the bone marrow of the recipient. This graft was used because the patient's umbilical vein was not suitable and other strategies (eg, liver transplantation) require lifelong immunosuppression.

 

Findings

The graft immediately provided the recipient with a functional blood supply (25–30 cm/s in the portal vein and 40 mL/s in the artery was measured intraoperatively and confirmed with ultrasound). The patient had normal laboratory values for 9 months. However, at 1 year the blood flow was low and, on exploration, the shunt was patent but too narrow due to mechanical obstruction of tissue in the mesocolon. Once the tissue causing the compression was removed the graft dilated. We therefore used a second stem-cell populated vein graft to lengthen the previous graft. After this second operation, the portal pressure was reduced from 20 mm Hg to 13 mm Hg and blood flow was 25–40 cm/s in the portal vein. With restored portal circulation the patient has substantially improved physical and mental function and growth. The patient has no anti-endothelial cell antibodies and is receiving no immunosuppressive drugs.

Interpretation

An acellularised deceased donor vein graft recellularised with autologous stem cells can be considered for patients in need of vascular vein shunts without the need for immunosuppression.

"

University of Minnesota Physician-researchers John E. Wagner, M.D., and Jakub Tolar, M.D., Ph.D., have for the

first time used stem cells from bone marrow to repair the skin of patients with a fatal skin disease with EB.

“What we have found is that stem cells contained in bone marrow can travel to sites of injured skin, leading to

increased production of collagen which is deficient in patients with EB."

What do you people think about that? Is there really a difference?

I know you have an interest in neuroregeneration so I'm wondering did you hear about the experiment where an injured mouse brain was coerced into repair by injecting a virus caring a Sox2 gene which gave microglial cells the ability for pluripotency (or at least the ability to form into other cells - in this case neurons - they share traits with) for a short while.

 

Direct reprogramming of cells is a method I'm personally more interested in because it doesn't require an extensive in vitro procedure. For things like myocardial infarction and stroke for instance it makes more sense because it can be done right after the patient is stabilized maximizing the chance for full recovery.
