Stem Cell Therapy is One Step Closer to Becoming Law in Texas

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 11.22.00 AMStem cell therapy is one step closer to becoming law in Texas, the latest state to push for passage of a patients’ “Right to Try” legislation. House Bill (HB) 810 is one of three proactive stem cell bills being considered in the Texas Legislature that would make it easier for those suffering with incurable illnesses to have access to stem cell treatments. The bill, which passed the Texas House unanimously, now heads over to the Senate.

Scott Wolf, CEO and Director of Research for Grace Century comments: “This kind of legislation, hopefully will be controlled, but moves the goal post closer for the industry. Personally, I am waiting for Insurance companies to agree to pay for storage of young healthy cells: to me that’s a no brainer for improving health down the road, while saving tons of cash.”

New Direction of Stem Cell Research is About to Revolutionize Modern Dentistry

5a9bdcb0915c2aac2087cf39e9a4a746The stem cells that may be extracted from our teeth can be used to fill in chips, cracks, and cavities, scientists say, and the findings could one day possibly make dental cement obsolete.

The new methodology has been tested only in mice so far, but the research itself, published Monday in the journal Scientific Reports, describes a way to motivate stem cells to repair tooth defects at a scale they normally can’t, with a drug that already has some safety testing behind it. It also highlights the potential of a type of stem cell therapy in which the cells are stimulated in place, rather than taken out, manipulated, and put back in.

Stem Cells are Now Being Used to Cure Sickle Cell Disease

hospitals-large_transwc_q6o_wkvh9zlqtpecugf4wkyugpvyxktmlosimqgqA diagnosis that can cause debilitating fatigue, pains and even death is now being cured with use of the stem cells. Doctors in Chicago say they found a way to help patients with a sickle cell disease.

The inherited illness affects approximately one out of 500 African Americans.

Felita Sims, a teacher from Waukegan, inherited sickle cell from her father.

“I actually had a father that passed away from sickle cell, so,” she said.

She worried the disease might kill her too.

“Oxygen is being sucked out of you so it stops you from moving, from breathing, sometimes it feels that way,” Sims said.

The disease causes red blood cells to become crescent-shaped, like a sickle. This cell shape prevents sufficient delivery of the oxygen to the body and the internal organs. As a result – patient may experience excruciating pain attacks, organ failure and death.
