Diabetes Can Lead to Amputations, But Stem Cell Treatment Offers Hope!

 

 

One of the most dangerous complications of diabetes is a foot ulcer that won’t heal, but now a preliminary study finds that a type of stem cell found in body fat may be a powerful remedy for these severe foot wounds. Diabetes Can Lead to Amputations, But Stem Cell Treatment Offers Hope!

The study included 63 patients with non-healing diabetic foot ulcers who were given injections of cells from their own body fat. Over the next year, the treatment healed the ulcers in most patients. Researchers said the study — conducted in Nicaragua — lays the groundwork for a similar trial in the United States, to replicate the findings.

Diabetic foot ulcers are open sores or wounds that affect roughly 15% of people with diabetes, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). For some, the wounds refuse to heal and can become infected — sometimes leading to amputation.

In the United States alone, studies show that more than half of all amputations are diabetes-related — and non-healing foot ulcers are usually the reason why. People with diabetes are vulnerable to foot ulcers for several reasons, explained study author Dr. Michael Carstens.

How Are Stem Cells Being Used in Treating Cancer?

How Are Stem Cells Being Used in Treating Cancer?

Battling cancer is not an easy thing to take on, and it can get exhausting trying new treatments. However, there is a new option that you should consider. Stem cell therapy for cancer is a new and innovative treatment that can help treat this terminal disease. Stem cell therapy has been around for years and has been used to treat a number of pain conditions. Through the years and thanks to medical advancements, this treatment has been developed and improved to attack cancer cells in the body. If you’re considering this cancer treatment, it is time to speak with experts in the field to learn more. Stem Cell Miami is a leading provider of therapy in the Miami area, and they can help you understand these procedures and how they could be beneficial to you and your condition.

What You Need To Know About Stem Cell Therapy For Cancer

Stem cell therapy consists of a number of transplants where your own stem cells are removed and harvested from your body. Once they are removed, from either your bone marrow or blood, they are frozen, so they are preserved for the duration of the therapy procedure. After the stem cells are removed from your body, you will receive the treatment that could have destroyed the cells if they were left in your body. After you receive your high doses of chemo or radiation, the stem cells that were removed and frozen will be thawed and injected back into your body.

One of the benefits of this stem cell therapy transplant is that your own cells are being removed and then injected back into your body. The reason this is an advantage is that when your body gets new stem cells known as engrafted cells they can end up attacking your body or you can get an infection since the cells are coming from another person’s body. However, even though they are your own stem cells, there is still a chance that something can go wrong. For instance, it is a possibility that the cells won’t go into the bone marrow when they are injected back into your body.

This particular transplant is mostly used to treat leukemia, lymphoma, and different types of myeloma. It can also be used for testicular cancer, neuroblastoma, as well as a number of cancers in children. Researchers are examining and looking for how autologous transplants could be used to treat other diseases like systemic sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and Crohn’s disease.
Although this treatment has some advantages like any other option, there are some disadvantages as well. One of them is that there is a possibility that cancer cells may be harvested with your stem cells, which means when the cells are injected back into your body the cancer cells are re-entering too. Another disadvantage is that your immune system isn’t improved during this procedure. This means that cancer cells are able to attack your immune system. To help stop this from happening some doctors may treat the stem cells that are removed before they are injected back into a patient’s body. This is done as an attempt to kill off any remaining cancer cells that might have been taken out with the stem cells. It isn’t proven whether or not this helps. One possible negative aspect of this process is that some of the healthy stem cells can be lost and killed off as well as the targeted cancer cells.

La semana pasada, tuve el honor de presentar nuestro último estudio clínico en la prestigiosa conferencia de ASIPP (American Society Of Interventional Pain Physicians) que se efectuó este año en la cercana ciudad de Orlando, Florida. En esta concurrida conferencia, compartimos con famosos doctores de alrededor de los Estados Unidos, que también se especializan en el ámbito del manejo del dolor.

Además compartir nuestros últimos descubrimientos, fuimos agraciadamente galardonados con el segundo lugar en la categoría de mejor estudio clinico / abstracto presentado en esta conferencia, codiciado premio que nos enorgullece enormemente a mí y a todo el equipo de nuestro instituto de Stem Cell Miami.
