Osteoarthritis is a leading cause of chronic disability in elderly and the risk of disability attributed to osteoarthritis is as great as or greater than due to any other medical condition in that age group. Several cross sectional studies have demonstrated an age related increase in the prevalence of osteoarthritis of knee(5). Results of survey are similar with most surgeons reporting 50+ years age group being commonest at initial presentation and that the incidence increases with advancing age. Interestingly some surgeons have noticed earlier occurrence of osteoarthritis in 40+ years age group and one has to be careful to screen for secondary causes in this younger age group patients.
While pain relief is the primary treatment goal of osteoarthritis medications, localized inflammation may also be relieved by using certain drugs. Managing osteoarthritis pain can involve medications, natural remedies, exercise, weight loss, joint protection, mobility aids, assisted devices and more.
Stem cell therapy, using cells extracted from the same patient or suitable alternative human sources, targets diseases which are either incurable or with no complete or effective treatment available in the traditional healthcare system. Since this therapy is based on the concept of regenerating damaged cells in the injured or disease-affected areas of the body, it is called regenerative medicine
Autologous stem cells provide an attractive option for osteoarthritis patients and their clinicians.
In our present study we want to evaluate the safety and efficacy of autologous bone marrow derived stem cells in treatment of Osteoarthritis for therapeutic chondrogenesis through delivery of stem cells into the knee joint space in ten Indian patients.

This study is conducted to assess whether implanting autologous, culture-expanded, mesenchymal stem cells obtained from the bone marrow of patients with early osteoarthritis, cartilage de...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to asses the feasibility and the security of the intraspinal infusion of autologous bone marrow stem cells for the treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sc...
The goal of this study is to determine the safety of giving a patient's own bone marrow-derived stem cells delivered with a catheter (tube) into the coronary arteries (blood vessels of the...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of autologous bone marrow mononuclear stem cells in the management of autism.
This pilot study is aimed to reconstruct atrophied posterior alveolar mandibular ridges using biomaterial and autologous bone marrow derived stem cells (BMMSC) and to insert an implant int...
Age-related bone loss is associated with bone marrow adiposity. Adipokines (e.g. visfatin, resistin, leptin) are adipocyte-derived factors with immunomodulatory properties and might influence differen...
The secretome produced by cells within the bone marrow is significant to homeostasis. The bone marrow, a well-studied organ, has multiple niches with distinct roles for supporting stem cell functions....
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are pluripotent stem cells with the ability to differentiate into a variety of other connective tissue cells, such as chondral, bony, muscular, and tendon tissue. Bone ma...
Stroke, one of the most devastating diseases, is a leading cause of death and disability throughout the world and is also associated with emotional and economic problems. The main goal of this study w...
Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) can be used as a vector for gene therapies. In order to predict the number of HSPCs cells necessary to achieve the target level of chimerism in an autol...
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.
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.
A cell-separation technique where magnetizable microspheres or beads are first coated with monoclonal antibody, allowed to search and bind to target cells, and are then selectively removed when passed through a magnetic field. Among other applications, the technique is commonly used to remove tumor cells from the marrow (BONE MARROW PURGING) of patients who are to undergo autologous bone marrow transplantation.
Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.
Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, 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...
