Y’all know what I love? Open access science, that’s what. And that’s why this week’s good news about cell therapy comes from an article that’s freely available to every single one of you, right here on the regular old internet. This study actually came out about a year ago, but I think it deserves a little more attention than it’s received thus far. Here’s why: this study executed a head to head comparison of hyaluronic acid (HA) injections (aka viscosupplementation) and platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is frequently a topic of conversation with doctor and patients. The authors concluded that PRP achieved longer lasting results in all patients and was more effective in reducing pain and disability (as measure by a quality of life scale) in patients with less severe arthritis. – Read More –
Hello readers, it’s Dr. Richard Suzuki again and I’ll be writing today’s Celling blog. I’d like to discuss the recent surge of media attention surrounding antibiotic-resistant bacteria resulting from the unfortunate case of a 70-year old woman who died in Washoe County, Nevada. Dr. Moncivais has discussed the subject of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in a previous blog, but given the renewed discussion over these “superbugs” as they care called, I thought it would be timely to re-address the subject. – Read More –
Stem cells and regenerative medicine represent the promise of 21st century scientific advancement in how healthcare will be practiced in the United States and abroad. At its core, regenerative medicine is the process of using cells, proteins, and biomaterials to trigger natural healing and regeneration within the body. Scientists are closer than ever to understanding the mechanisms of biologic disease and regeneration and why our bodies fail to repair themselves after traumatic injury, age-related degeneration, or disease-induced deterioration. Admittedly, there is much more still to be learned than has been discovered thus far, but our accomplishments as a field are laudable nonetheless. – Read More –
Regenerative medicine has sprouted many fascinating therapies and is gaining popularity in the field of medicine for spine and orthopedic applications. Regenerative medicine is an umbrella term for many treatments, and I will cover the adult stem cell therapy derived from autologous bone marrow concentrate (stem cells and immune cells concentrated from a patient’s own bone marrow). Below are some of my favorite 2016 publications that show the latest advances in regenerative medicine. – Read More –
Hello, blog readers. If you are reading this blog, then you should know that we are cycling through different posters each week. And if you are reading this blog, you should also know that you have excellent judgement in selecting online sources of information regarding cell therapies.
My name is Richard Suzuki, and I’m one of the Ph.D.s here at Celling. I’ve done guest blogs, and this time I would like to address a recurring question that is brought up in the autologous cell therapy field. – Read More –
