Did you know families are now choosing to preserve stem cells from their children's baby teeth, wisdom teeth and teeth removed for orthodontia?

"Scientists have shown in mice that skin cells re-programmed into brain stem cells, transplanted into the central nervous system, help reduce inflammation and may be able to help repair damage caused by multiple sclerosis(MS)."

"There is no cure for MS. However, there is an experimental treatment called Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (AHSCT). Advocates claim AHSCT can curb the debilitating symptoms of MS. Stem cell transplants were carried out to stop the disease progressing rather than repair what has already been damaged. As part of the process, stem cells are taken from the patient's bone marrow or peripheral blood and stored in sub-zero temperatures. The patient then undergoes a high dose of chemotherapy before the stem cells are replanted."

"Adipose-derived stem cells (AdSCs) have recently been considered a useful treatment tool for autoimmune disease because of their anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. We investigated the therapeutic effect of intravenous AdSC transplantation in a mouse model of bleomycin-induced lung injury. AdSCs accumulated in the pulmonary interstitium and inhibited both inflammation and fibrosis in the lung, markedly improving the survival rate of mice with bleomycin-induced lung injury in a cell number-dependent manner."

"Just six months ago, Jovon hovered near death, diagnosed with a rare immune disorder that had bounced him in and out of the hospital since his third birthday. His symptoms had ballooned from flu-like coughs and tiredness into seizures and a tumor blocking half his airway. Doctors at UHealth would find Jovon had cancer – stage 2 lymphoma – connected to X-linked lymphoproliferative syndrome, a literally one-in-a-million genetic disorder that made him vulnerable to certain infections."

"As the world of stem cell research advances, more options may become available to patients with RA and other autoimmune diseases."
