Neil Riordan PhD on stem cell expansion in stem cell therapy

Stem Cell Pioneers featured Dr. Riordan in its February installment of "Ask the Doctor", a monthly segment that features stem cell scientists and doctors answering questions from readers about stem cell therapy. Over the next several days, we will share these questions and Dr. Riordan's answers with our readers. Question: Are there some conditions such [...]

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells: Regeneration, Repair, Inflammation and Autoimmunity – Neil Riordan PhD (Part 2 of 2)

In part 2, Dr. Riordan discusses how mesenchymal stem cells can affect tissue repair in spinal cord injury and in heart failure; benefit to heart is not the actual MSCs modeling new tissue. It is due to the trophic effects of MSC secretions; In rats, severed spinal cords re-grew after MSCs were implanted but the [...]

VIDEO – The Science of Mesenchymal Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine – Arnold Caplan PhD (Part 4)

In part 4, Prof. Caplan talks about isolating mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow using specialized; calf serum choosing different assays to prove multipotency - osteogenesis, chondrogenesis, adipogenesis; point of care with autologous bone marrow in orthopedic surgery; tissue engineering bone with lineage restricted MSCs; banking bone discarded bone marrow from orthopedic surgeries for future [...]

Stem cell therapy for knees, osteoarthritis and autoimmune disorders: King Goff

King Goff received three applications of his own adipose tissue-derived stem cells over the course of 3 days for a knee injury and autoimmune issues at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama. In this video, Mr. Goff discusses conventional treatments he received before stem cells, pre-treatment symptoms, post-treatment improvements, the doctors and staff, and the [...]

Stem cell treatments for rheumatoid arthritis: Tracey Renneberg

Tracey Renneberg discusses her improvements following stem cell therapy for rheumatoid arthritis. Tracey is now in Panama multiple sclerosis treatment. "My rheumatoid arthritis is completely gone. This leg used to drag and now I can pick it up and walk. If patients have rheumatoid arthritis or MS, this is where they should be."
