Manufactured Blood?

If you have been following this blog and keeping up with the fascinating world of regenerative medicine, you know that all adult stem cells are not the same. There are different progenitor cell types like Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that are derived from bone marrow. HSCs give rise to all the cells in the blood, including immune cells like B cells and T cells, through the process of hematopoiesis and here is an excellent review on MSCs and the therapeutic benefits they provide. – Read More –

Labeling Stem Cells

In my previous blog, I talked about the different routes used to deliver stem cells focusing on systemic delivery. Regardless of the delivery route chosen, labeling and tracking stem cells in vivo (within the organism) helps in determining their survival rate, where they migrated to and how many cells were retained in the area of interest. This provides us with insights into the therapeutic benefits of regenerative treatments. In this blog, I will discuss the current techniques being used to label stem cells. – Read More –

Systemic Delivery of Adult Stem Cells?

Anyone in the field of regenerative medicine will be aware of the powerful trophic, paracrine and immunomodulatory effects of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) (1). To achieve maximum therapeutic benefit, it is important to determine the optimal route for delivering stem cells and to learn about their fate once they are introduced into the body. There are two main modes of stem cell delivery: local delivery into the tissue and systemic delivery (delivery throughout the body). Local delivery includes injection into the bone (2), muscle etc. – Read More –
