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?

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.

Young Blood Vessels Can Rejuvenate Aging Stem Cells Through Transplant

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 Transplant

Study from China explores injection of PRP into bone or intraosseous injection for knee osteoarthritis

A group of doctors from China published new research in Clinical Rheumatology on PRP platelet Rich Plasma. Traditionally PRP is injected inside the joint, however our recent understanding of arthritis suggests that by targeting the subchondral bone beneath cartilage we may better influence the disease process. In the study doctors followed 82 patients over 18 months. Patients either … Continue reading Study from China explores injection of PRP into bone or intraosseous injection for knee osteoarthritis

Scientists in Israel have successfully conducted the first-ever bone regrowth surgery!

The medical team of Bonus BioGroup, an Israel-based biotechnology company, were able to create thousands of tiny living bone particles from the fat cells of a patient’s leg. The medical team was able to harvest and reprogram fat cells to be used to promote bone growth in the same patient’s shinbone. This is an exciting … Continue reading Scientists in Israel have successfully conducted the first-ever bone regrowth surgery!
