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 [...]

Bone Marrow Stem Cells Significantly Improve Cardiac Mortality Rate in Heart Disease Patients

Texas Heart Institute researcher, Emerson Perin MD, PhD revealed that heart patients who were treated with bone marrow-derived adult stem cells died at a significantly lower rate that those who did not receive stem cells. Dr. Perin's scientific findings represent yet another positive step in the ongoing fight against heart disease. Dr. Perin is the [...]

Stem Cell trial volunteers thank doctors at reunion lunch

Miami Herald, by Fred Tasker, Stem cell therapy was originally used for the treatment of leukemias in the form of bone marrow transplant. Nearly 2 decades after this groundbreaking work, clinical trials initiated using bone marrow stem cells for treatment of heart patients. Bone marrow stem cells possess the ability to stimulate new blood [...]

New Stem Cells Found in Ovary

Parte et al. Stem Cells Dev. Very small embryonic like cells (VSEL) are a type of stem cell that appears to be found in bone marrow and other tissues of the body, presumably as a remnant of embryonic or embryonic-like cells left over from development. In a recent paper it was demonstrated that these cells [...]
