  • spinal cord i
  • Despite restricted regeneration in the central nervous system, we have previously proved that human umbilical cord blood mono-nuclear cells (UCB-MC) transduced with adenoviral vectors carrying genes encoding vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), and neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) successfully rescued neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and spinal cord injury. (frontiersin.org)
  • Spinal cord injury research seeks new ways to cure or treat spinal cord injury in order to lessen the debilitating effects of the injury in the short or long term. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is no cure for SCI, and current treatments are mostly focused on spinal cord injury rehabilitation and management of the secondary effects of the condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Injection of CD34+ hematopoietic Stem Cells has been clinically applied to treat various diseases including Spinal Cord Injury, Liver Cirrhosis and Peripheral Vascular disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research has shown that CD34+ cells are relatively more in men than in women in the reproductive age among Spinal Cord Injury victims. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2017
  • Transparency Market Research estimates that the global umbilical cord blood banking market, which valued at US$3,124.4 mn in 2016, will exhibit a strong CAGR of 11.4% from 2017 to 2025, reaching an estimated value of US$8,178.1 mn in 2025. (transparencymarketresearch.com)
  • liver
  • Physical symptoms generally include coarse or rough facial features (including a flat nasal bridge, thick lips, and enlarged mouth and tongue), short stature with disproportionately short trunk (dwarfism), dysplasia (abnormal bone size and/or shape) and other skeletal irregularities, thickened skin, enlarged organs such as liver (hepatomegaly) or spleen (splenomegaly), hernias, and excessive body hair growth. (wikipedia.org)
  • lymphoma
  • When your child has leukemia, lymphoma or a serious blood disorder, you're naturally worried and searching for the right care, with people who understand kids who are sick. (spectrumhealth.org)
  • This targeted therapy is especially effective to help your child fight lymphoma and other blood cancers. (spectrumhealth.org)
  • infection
  • Thus, prevention of infection is a major goal, which involves determination of risk, careful selection of donors, prophylactic and/or preemptive antimicrobial therapy, immunization, and additional measures (eg, infection control). (uptodate.com)
  • tissues
  • These features may not be apparent at birth but progress as storage of glycosaminoglycans affects bone, skeletal structure, connective tissues, and organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • This results from compression of nerves or nerve roots in the spinal cord or in the peripheral nervous system, the part of the nervous system that connects the brain and spinal cord to sensory organs such as the eyes and to other organs, muscles, and tissues throughout the body. (wikipedia.org)
