Study Shows Bone Marrow Stem Cells Help Tennis Elbow

A study published in the Jul-Dec 2014 edition of the Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine entitled "Bone marrow injection: A novel treatment for tennis elbow" concludes that a single injection of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) into the elbow lead to significant improvement of patients suffering from tennis elbow. The study followed 30 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
