How do Corticosteroids and Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) Therapy Measure up When It Comes to Plantar Fasciitis?
Many are familiar with the nagging pain and irritation that comes with plantar fasciitis. For those who aren’t, the plantar fascia is a band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes and hence, provides arch support. When this tissue becomes strained or injured, the result is a painful inflammatory condition—plantar fasciitis. Researchers … Continue reading How do Corticosteroids and Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) Therapy Measure up When It Comes to Plantar Fasciitis?Continue Reading

Can Bone Marrow-Derived Mononuclear Cells (BM MNCs) Improve Knee Osteoarthritis and Slow its Progression?
A recent clinical study explored the effects of injecting moderately osteoarthritic knees with a single dose of a mixed population of bone-marrow-derived cells. This mix of bone marrow-derived cells (bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells/BM MNCs) each have one nucleus and include blood progenitor cells, immune system cells, and stem cells that can become a variety of … Continue reading Can Bone Marrow-Derived Mononuclear Cells (BM MNCs) Improve Knee Osteoarthritis and Slow its Progression?Continue Reading
New clinical study: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) Vs. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Injections to Treat Knee Osteoarthritis
Researchers in France have conducted a clinical study to evaluate the effectiveness of a single Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) injection versus Hyaluronic Acid(HA) supplementation in treating osteoarthritis of the knee. Such measures of success included the ability to alleviate pain and improve function. An additional aim of this study was to identify biological elements of PRP … Continue reading New clinical study: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) Vs.

Louis and colleagues recently conducted a clinical … Continue reading New Clinical Study on Bone Marrow Concentrate as a Treatment for Musculoskeletal Injuries Under Ultrasound GuidanceContinue Reading
According the The Daily Beast, research study at Weill Cornell Medical College has found that aged stem cells in mice can be rejuvenated by transplanting young blood vessel cells, causing a boost in blood system function. Blood vessel cells are important for sustaining nearby stem cells and aiding organ regeneration. Aging leads to declining functioning of … Continue reading Young Blood Vessels Can Rejuvenate Aging Stem Cells Through TransplantContinue Reading
A recent FDA approved study performed by The Andrews Institute is examining cartilage regrowth in the knee using a series of stem cell injections, and it appears to be showing very positive early results. The series of injections in combination with physical therapy could potentially limit the need for total joint replacement surgeries in patients with knee … Continue reading Early Results Showing Positive Outcome for Knee Cartilage Regrowth from Stem CellsContinue Reading
According to a report in Research Nester, by 2021, the market for stem cell regenerative medicine will reach over 50 Billion USD with European countries surpassing North America by 2019. Furthermore, Asia-Pacific countries are becoming the front-runners in regenerative medicine product suppliers, therefore increasing their market as well in the field. The surge in stem … Continue reading Regenerative Medicine Market Soaring Over Next 3 Years, Worth 50 Billion USDContinue Reading
“A recent study by the Boston University School of Medicine Effect of bisphosphonates on knee replacement surgery shows that women aged 50-89 with a diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis have a 25% better chance at avoiding knee replacement surgery when taking Bisphosphonates vs. women in that age range who were not taking them. Bisphosphonates are medicines typically used … Continue reading Bisphosphonates Can Decrease the Chances of Knee Replacements in Women by 25%Continue Reading
