Stem Cell-Based Therapy For Lung Cancer

stem cell prp for lung cancer

Novel approach in mesenchymal stem cell-based therapy for radiation-induced lung injury Current problems in cancer and anticancer therapies are very acute these days. One of the most common cancers for both men and women is the lung cancer, which is by far the leading cause of cancer death each year. The American Cancer Society’s estimates [Read More]

Six-year-old Leukemia Patient’s Campaign Saves Lives

Joel Picker-Spence of Farndon in Nottinghamshire died in 2008 before his seventh birthday. But before he died, he did what most 6-year-olds cannot even dream of. Joel potentially saved the lives of 14 people who would have probably not survived without the stem cell donations collected during the Join for Joel campaign. Although there was [Read More]

Twins with Testicular Cancer Receive Stem Cell Treatment

Twenty-four-year-old fraternal twins, Sean and Ryan Collard from the United Kingdom were diagnosed with testicular cancer within weeks of each other. The two are now raising awareness about the condition which affects young men. Ryan was diagnosed first, and at the time, his mother asked experts whether his twin was at risk and needed to [Read More]

Stem Cell Project May Help Develop Customized Drugs for Cancer

Stem cell scientists are trying to better understand cancer and develop drugs that are essentially “tuneable.” The new project by Scottish researchers is based on a technique developed by Strathclyde University scientists in collaboration with a spinoff company. The idea is to develop drugs which can be customized to the patient’s individual needs. The project [Read More]

Stem Cell Protein for Breast Cancer Treatment

Stem cells are unspecialized cells that differentiate in response to certain signals. Researchers have long understood that cancerous cells are in some ways similar to stem cells. Now scientists are investigating whether a stem cell protein can be used to kill breast cancer cells. Stem Cells and Breast Cancer

Stem Cells May Be the Link between Cancer and Bacteria

Approximately 28,000 Americans receive a new diagnosis of gastric cancer each year. At any given time, close to 100,000 Americans are living with gastric cancer. The disease claims more than 10,000 lives annually. Stomach cancer is most commonly diagnosed in men and women between the ages of 65 and 74. In addition to age, diet [Read More]

Cancer Treatment with Antibiotic and Vitamin C

A new study has indicated cancer treatment may be possible with a combined therapy of antibiotics along with a nontoxic agent like vitamin C. This novel strategy may pave the way to treat resistant or recurrent cancers. Cancer Treatment with Antibiotic and Vitamin C Researchers used combined therapy of doxycycline (an antibiotic) and vitamin C [Read More]

Scientists Develop Stem Cell Therapy for Cancer

Scientists at the University of California – Irvine have developed a stem cell therapy to target and kill cancer cells without some of the toxic effects typically associated with chemotherapy. Stem Cell Therapy for Cancer The group in Irvine programmed stem cells obtained from the human bone marrow to identify cancer cells based on their [Read More]

ONC201 May Help Treat Refractory Cancer

Researchers at Oncoceutics, Inc., have identified a molecule known as ONC201 that could help treat refractory cancer. ONC201 alters the gene expression of cancer stem cells and prevents them from self-renewing. Cancer stem cells play a key role in cancer recurrence and lack of response to chemoradiation treatments. Cancer Stem Cells and ONC201 Cancer stem [Read More]

Are Cancers Simply Bad Luck?

Worldwide, more than 8 million people die each year from cancer and its related complications. Approximately 14 million people receive a new diagnosis of cancer every year. The World Health Organization estimates that these figures will rise by about 70 percent over the next 20 years. Because it is one of the leading causes of [Read More]

Military Member With Cancer Forced To Travel Across State Lines For Cancer Treatment (Video)

Sacred Heart stem cell transplant for cancer

Uplifting story about Rickey Rhoades, a medical staff member in the military who just returned home from Afghanistan and is now being treated in Spokane, Washington, at the Sacred Heart Medical Center for Myeloma cancer.   Sacred Heart Medical Center is the only hospital outside of Seattle to help treat patients using Autologous Stem Cell Transplants. [Read More]

How Stem Cells Limit The Negative Effects of Brain Cancer Radiation

Stem cell therapy has already shown tremendous promise in healing areas of the brain damaged by radiation injury from cancer treatment. Scientists at the University of California Irvine have now made a promising discovery that an isolated part of stem cells called microvesicles can produce comparable benefits, without some of the risks associated with stem [Read More]
