Stem cells bring fast direct improvement, without differentiation, in acute renal failure

... rats with ischemic/reperfusion (I/R) ARF. Animals infused with MSC either immediately or 24 hours after reperfusion had significantly better renal function, lower renal injury and cell-death scores, and higher cell division indices than vehicle-treated control animals," the paper stated. Indeed, administrat...

Bone marrow stem cells may heal hearts even years after heart attacks

... After processing, stem cells from the marrow were infused through a catheter into the coronary artery where the patient's heart attack occurred. "The main results were at least threefold: an improvement in global left ventricular function by 15 percent, infarction wall movement velocity rose 57 percent, an...

A single sugar found responsible for an antibody's ability to treat inflammation

...lupus, arthritis and asthma. And yet, when IVIG is infused into people with those exact autoimmune conditions, it calms inflammation rather than causes it. Jeffery Ravetch, Theresa and Eugene M.
