Stem cells treat macular degeneration

Stem cell transplant ‘game changer’ for MS patients

I have been involved with stem cells for eight years while in New York City.
Stem cells are on the verge of becoming primary treatment in many clinical diseases. The above are examples of unusual conditions that have shown improvement using stem cells.
As a surgeon with over 40 years experience operating on many parts of the body, widespread background and experience in medicine can offer additional benefit. Look at dealing with an entire human machine.

Stem cells are basic, naïve cells with an ability to divide indefinitely and differentiate into any of three embryonic tissue levels. This means they have the ability to form different types of cells leading to distinct tissue growth. There are many levels of stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are the most useful for overall stem cell therapy. The word pluripotent indicates the potential for a stem cell to not only regenerate different types of tissue but also provide a systemic effect.
Everyone has their own stem cells. However, they are the same age and have been exposed to the same environmental toxins as the individual. Stem cells get older as we do. The overall number of stem cells decreases with age.
The source of stem cells is very important. Evidence has shown that stem cells from diseased patients are not as effective as from young patients. Beyond the age of mid-20’s, I do not feel native cells should be considered. I also throw in the note that many patients who consider themselves healthy may not have optimum stem cell activity. This includes those on medication that have “normal numbers” with their annual blood work.
These articles outline frontiers with stem cell therapy. It is not as easy as inject the stem cells and all is done. What About Stem Cells?
