Patients with peripheral artery disease, stage III or IV who are not candidates for interventional or operative therapy should be treated with intraarterial progenitor cell therapy (autologous bone marrow cells) in a randomized, placebo controlled trial.

The Purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of regenerative therapy with intraarterial infusion of mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue, in diabetic patients ...
Stroke is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality.Acute ischemia causes irreversible damage to neurons and glial cells, leading to functional deficits and chronic sequelae with variable...
Stem cells have promising potential in treating diabetes. However the therapeutic outcome in diabetic patients will profoundly depend on their delivery to pancreas. Our objective is to lab...
The aim of this clinical trial is to investigate the efficacy (by monitoring the wound size reduction of Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease-related clinically relevant ulcers) and safet...
In order to study the transplantation effect of hematopoetic stem cells from beta-thalassemia induced pluripotent stem cells. We applied clinical grade source of autologous hematopoietic s...
Stem cell therapy has emerged as an exciting stroke therapeutic, but the optimal delivery method remains unclear. While the technique of microinjection has been used for decades to deliver stem cells ...
Stem cells are a promising solution for the treatment of heart failure due to their ability to repopulate injured myocardium and restore cardiac function. However, many hindrances (such as low surviva...
In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Chan et al. (2018) report that in vivo differentiation of pluripotent stem cells in induced teratomas produces functional embryonic-like muscle stem cells. These pur...
Neural stem cells in the ventricular-subventricular zone of the adult brain continuously generate differentiated neurons without depleting the stem cell pool. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Obernier...
Modulation of endogenous adult stem cell niches represents a promising strategy for regeneration of tissues and to correct cell abnormalities, including cancer. Recent advances show the possibility to...
The malignant stem cells of TERATOCARCINOMAS, which resemble pluripotent stem cells of the BLASTOCYST INNER CELL MASS. The EC cells can be grown in vitro, and experimentally induced to differentiate. They are used as a model system for studying early embryonic cell differentiation.
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function; examples are MYOBLASTS; MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS; and skin stem cells.

Experimentation on STEM CELLS and on the use of stem cells.
The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
