Every day new developments in the field of stem cell research and development hits the news. In recent months, new types of secretor cells in the intestine have been found, as well as the ability of stem cells to restore some movement in animals who have experienced a spinal cord injury. New testing for plauripotent stem cells continues, offering future treatments for lymphoma, skin cancer, immune system malfunction and dysfunction, and prostate cancers. Pluripotent stem cells have the ability to mature or develop into just about any type of cell in the body.
Also making the news is the ability of human stem cells utilized to replace and replenish neurons lost in the brains of those diagnosed with Alzheimers disease. Embryonic stem cells have been transformed into neurons known to experience damage and death early in Alzheimer’s disease process, and a leading factor in memory loss.
Alzheimer’s disease and research, as well as other brain disorders and syndromes including dementia are one of the focuses of stem cell research and technology today. While stem cell clinical trials are underway in the United States, none has yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
However, facilities around the world offer with seem to be effective stem cell treatments and technologies, including those offered by Dr. Omar Gonzalez and Integra Medical Center near Cancun, Mexico. New Parkinson’s research is underway at the University of Maryland, and research development and treatment facilities and therapeutic procedures are available from Mexico to the Ukraine in facilities like EmCell to stem cell treatment options from MeditourPartners in South Korea.
