Dr. Feng Lin, Director of Research at Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. (OTCBulletinBoard: BMSN) and Entest BioMedical Inc., today stated that he believes that an effective new therapy for “traumatic brain injury” (TBI) using autologous “adipose-derived” stem cells represents a potential cure for TBI. According to Dr. Lin, both Bio-Matrix and Entest BioMedical are now studying the “therapeutic effect of fat stem cells on traumatic brain injury-associated brain ischemia and inflammation and replacement of damaged neurons with neuron cells differentiated from fat cells.” Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. and Entest BioMedical Inc. recently submitted a research summary

ITALY – Ready for stem cells gathering

At the San Timoteo Hospital in Termoli-Larino (Molise, a small region in south central Italy, formerly part of the region “Abruzzi e Molise”) everything is ready for stem cells gathering – in conjunction with the orthopedy ward (branch of medicine dealing with diseases of the bones and joints) – which will be used for local treatments, above all on pseudo-arthrosis.

Adult Stem Cells Help Minnesota Man’s Angina and Heart Disease

Stem Cell Research Debate-Heart Disease Can Be Helped Now
While much of the United States is focused on the debate of Embryonic Stem Cell research versus Adult Stem Cell research, not much attention is given to patients benefiting from Adult Stem Cells right now. The number of patients helped by stem cell therapy for heart […]

Stem cells boosted by Tai Chi

Taiwanese researchers have identified one possible reason that practitioners of the martial art tai chi tout its health benefits: shadow boxing apparently reinvigorates stem cells.

In a study published in the international medical journal Cell Transplantation, a research team found that tai chi can increase the number of stem cells in practitioners.

Lin Hsin-jung, a neural surgeon and head of China Medical University Beigang Hospital in southern Taiwan, noted that the public has long considered Tai Chi to be good for the body, and practitioners say it helps them live a longer, healthier life.

Research Team Overcomes Major Obstacle for Stem Cell Therapies and Research

Professor Jeanne Loring

Stem cells show great potential to enable treatments for conditions such as spinal injuries or Lou Gehrig’s disease, and also as research tools. One of the greatest problems slowing such work is that researchers have found major complications in purifying cell mixtures, for instance to remove stem cells that can cause tumors from cells developed for use in medical treatments. But a group of Scripps Research scientists, working with colleagues in Japan, have developed a clever solution to this purification problem that should prove more reliable than other methods, safer, and perhaps 100 times cheaper.
