Latest News in Medical Research on Stem Cell Therapy
We are over 3 decades into stem cell research in medicine. Stem cell treatments, historically, have been proven to be an effective regenerative therapy for macular degeneration, a degenerative condition of the eye that eventually results in blindness. The benefits of stem cells in bone
Why the Stigma of Stem Cell Therapy is Stopping us from Getting Better
When stem cell therapies emerged in their first form – bone marrow transplants – no one had a problem with it. It was a natural resource from another live human. It didn’t compromise the health of the donor, and often, it saved the recipient’s life
Are Stem Cell Injections Effective at Treating Lower Back Pain?
Traditional medical approaches to back pain and herniated discs include exercise, physical therapy, pain and anti-inflammatory medications, and therapeutic injections such as PRP therapy. For severe back pain, some doctors even prescribe invasive surgeries such as spinal fusion. These surgeries require general anesthesia, rehabilitation, and
Are Stem Cell Doctors Happy About the Passage of California’s Prop 14?
In the election last November, California voters approved $5.5 billion in funding for stem-cell and other medical research — throwing a lifeline to the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Is this good news for stem cell research and regenerative medicine? Stem cell doctors are split
