New technology to grow 3D bone tissue in the lab by applying vibration to stem cells has been developed by Scottish researchers.A team from the University of the West of Scotland and the University of Glasgow created the revolutionary technique, which could make it possible to carry out bone grafting in a way that is less painful and risky for patients.How the new method works Presented at the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition, the method involves vibrating stem cells to a microscopic degree at high speeds, thus triggering them into becoming bone-producing cells. This approach, called nanokicking, would produce...

The “organic” Way to Younger Skin
What do you think when you hear about stem cells? Perhaps you think they are “experimental” or you’re concerned about what you’ve read or heard in the news media about stem cells from embryos. But there is a better way to view this therapy. Stem cells are part of your body and its own natural healing mechanism. In my view, they are probably the ultimate natural healer. We began offering stem cell treatments last month at the Sears Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine — and the results have been just amazing. I now use stem cells right across the anti-aging medical spectrum — from cosmetic pr...

Mesenchymal Stem Cells Derived from Human Adipose Tissue
Human adult mesenchymal stem cells are present in fat tissue, which can be obtained using surgical procedures such as liposuction. The multilineage capacity of mesenchymal stem cells makes them very valuable for cell-based medical therapies. In this chapter, we describe how to isolate mesenchymal stem cells from human adult fat tissue, propagate the cells in culture, and cryopreserve the cells for tissue engineering applications. Flow cytometry methods are also described for identification and characterization of adipose-derived stem cells and for cell sorting. (Source: Springer protocols feed by Biotechnology)
