Repeated doses of bone marrow MSCs bring nerve pain relief in spinal cord injury patients

Neuropathic pain, also known as nerve pain or neuralgia, occurs when there is damage to the nerves; it is one of the major consequences of spinal cord injury. In this study based in Spain, 10 patients received a dose of 100 million bone marrow MSCs, repeated at 4 months and 7 months. No adverse events [...]

Stem cell pioneer sets sights on Japan – Japan Times features Neil Riordan, PhD of Medistem Panama

"We enjoy the advantage of having a large amount of clinical data on 2,000 patients. So we analyzed who received which cells and which cells worked best in different conditions. This allowed us to create our selection process through molecular profiling,” explained Medistem (Panama) Founder and CEO Dr. Neil Riordan. Operating what is arguably the [...]

Stem Cell Therapy: Study finds that autologous bone marrow disc injections significantly reduce lumbar disc pain

A study published last year (2015) in the scientific journal Stem Cells entitled “Percutaneous injection of autologous bone marrow concentrate significantly reduces lumbar discogenic pain through 12 months”, reported that patients suffering from chronic back pain due to degenerative disc disease who were treated by injecting their own bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) into their [...]

Stem Cell-Augmented Achilles Tendon Rupture Repair Yields Excellent Results

Int Orthop. 2015 May;39(5):901-5. doi: 10.1007/s00264-015-2725-7. Epub 2015 Mar 22.

What are the sources of the stem cells used at Stem Cell Institute in Panama?

Lately, especially on our Facebook Page many people are asking us, "What is the source of the stem cells?" At the Stem Cell Institute, we use two types of stem cells. Primarily, we use allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells harvested from human umbilical cord tissue. In addition to allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells, our spinal cord injury [...]
