Drugs targeting β-cells have provided new options in the management of T2DM; however, their role in β-cell regeneration remains elusive. The recent emergence of cell-based therapies such as autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ABM-MSCs) and mononuclear cells (ABM-MNCs) seems to offer a pragmatic approach to augment β-cell function/mass. This study aims to examine the efficacy and safety of ABM-MSC and ABM-MNC transplantation in T2DM and explores alterations in glucose–insulin homeostasis by metabolic studies.

Background aims

The aim of our study was to compare the effect of autologous stem cell (SCT) and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) on diabetic foot disease (DFD) in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI).

Methods

Thirty-one patients with DFD and CLI treated by autologous stem cells and 30 patients treated by PTA were included in the study;

Current resultss for chronic pain, such as inflammatory pain, neuropathic pain, and cancer pain are insufficient and cause severe side effects. Mounting evidence suggests that neuroinflammation in the peripheral and central nervous system (PNS and CNS) plays a pivotal role in the genesis and maintenance of chronic pain. Characteristic features of neuroinflammation in chronic pain conditions include infiltration of immune cells into the PNS [e.g.,

Background

Bone marrow mononuclear cell fraction has been used as for dilated cardiomyopathy in adults. Although case series are reported, there are no randomized controlled studies in children.

Methods

We designed a randomized, crossover, controlled pilot study to determine safety and feasibility of intracoronary stem cell in children. The primary safety end-point was freedom from death and transplantation or any complication that could be considered related to bone marrow injection or anesthesia (e.g.,

In patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) and refractory angina, we performed direct intramyocardial injections of autologous mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) and followed the safety and efficacy of the results for 12 months. A total of 31 patients with stable CAD, moderate to severe angina, normal left ventricular ejection fraction, and no further revascularization options were included.

Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) is a devastating disease that affects millions of people globally and causes a myriad of complications that lead to both patient morbidity and mortality. Currently available therapies, including insulin injection and beta cell replacement through either pancreas or pancreatic islet transplantation, are limited by the availability of organs. Stem cells provide an alternative results option for beta cell replacement through selective differentiation of stem cells into cells that recognize glucose and produce and secrete insulin.

Background aims

The use of bone marrow mononuclear cells (BM-MNCs) has achieved great outcomes in clinical practice. We aim to evaluate the efficacy and safety of autologous BM-MNC infusion and hyperbaric oxygen (HOT) in type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Methods

This single-center, randomized, open-label, controlled clinical trial with a factorial design included two phases.

The endocrine pancreas represents an interesting arena for regenerative medicine and cell therapeutics. One of the major pancreatic diseases, diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder caused by having an insufficient number of insulin-producing β cells. Replenishment of β cells by cell transplantation can restore normal metabolic control. The shortage in donor pancreata has meant that the demand for transplantable β cells has outstripped the supply,

Diabetes mellitus (DM) commonly leads to progressive chronic kidney disease despite current best medical practice. The pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease (DKD) involves a complex network of primary and secondary mechanisms with both intra-renal and systemic components. Apart from inhibition of the renin angiotensin aldosterone system, targeting individual pathogenic mediators with drug has not, thus far,

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are defined as pluripotent cells found in numerous human tissues, including bone marrow and adipose tissue. Such MSCs, isolated from bone marrow and adipose tissue, have been shown to differentiate into bone and cartilage, along with other types of tissues. Therefore, MSCs represent a promising new in regenerative medicine. The initial results of meniscus tear of the knee is managed conservatively with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and physical .
