• tissue
  • By injecting molecules that were designed to self-assemble into nanostructures in the spinal tissue, we have been able to rescue and regrow rapidly damaged neurons," said Dr. Stupp at an April 23 session hosted by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies. (eurekalert.org)
  • The nanofibers - thousands of times thinner than a human hair - are the key to not only preventing the formation of harmful scar tissue which inhibits spinal cord healing, but to stimulating the body into regenerating lost or damaged cells. (eurekalert.org)
  • This would provide a radical new treatment approach to a wide variety of conditions where age, disease, or trauma has led to tissue damage or dysfunction. (wikipedia.org)
  • The purpose of the increased mineralization is to protect the pulp tissue from disease, injury and trauma. (wikipedia.org)
  • stem cells
  • Many less controversial sources of acquiring stem cells include using cells from the umbilical cord, breast milk, and bone marrow, which are not pluripotent. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2004: Culture of Human Limbal Stem Cells on Chorionic Membrane and use them for corneal injuries 2005: Establishment of the first Private Cord Blood Bank in Iran (Royan Stem Cell Technology Co.) 2006: The first IVM-IVF sheep born in Iran 2006: Iran's first cloned sheep, named Royana.

  • treatments
  • Kristin Baldwin and her colleagues at Scripps Research Institute have inserted a skin cell into a mouse embryo, and from that, into a living mouse - opening the door for possible new treatments for human disease. (wect.com)
  • Abnormal
  • Importantly, the molecular tweezers have been found to be effective and safe not only in the test tube but also in animal models of different diseases, suggesting that they may be developed as drugs against diseases caused by abnormal protein aggregation, all of which currently have no cure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgery
  • Many new correctional surgery techniques for a number of spine diseases have been developed by its Director, Dr. Kao-Wha Chang, Vice-Superintendent, who has helped the hospital to be certified by Medtronics and Stryker Corporation as the teaching facility for spine deformity correctional surgery in Asia. (wikipedia.org)
  • ethical
  • Besides the ethical concerns of stem cell therapy (see stem cell controversy), there is a technical problem of graft-versus-host disease associated with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart
  • My lab is a neurobiology lab, so we're focused on those kinds of outcomes, but many other labs are working on diabetes and heart disease," said Baldwin. (wect.com)
  • symptoms
  • Investigations may be performed to identify underlying disease processes that may have led to the development of symptoms or autonomic neuropathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptomatic treatment is available for many symptoms associated with dysautonomia, and some disease processes can be directly treated. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • The purpose of this research is to evaluate different methods of measuring body composition (amount of fat, muscle, bone, and water in your body) and to determine relationships between body composition and other medical problems associated with spinal cord injury (SCI). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Common areas of study include psychosocial development, environmental factors which contribute to the development of a disorder, outcomes of children with medical conditions, treating the comorbid behavioral and emotional components of illness and injury, and promoting proper health behaviors, developmental disabilities, educating psychologists and other health professionals on the psychological aspects of pediatric conditions, and advocating for public policy that promotes children's health.

  • psychological
  • Pediatric psychology is a multidisciplinary field of both scientific research and clinical practice which attempts to address the psychological aspects of illness, injury, and the promotion of health behaviors in children, adolescents, and families in a pediatric health setting. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • The neurologist consulted for this case stated that the young Arizonian would have to endure almost 20 years worth of therapy, until the parents remembered they had stored her cord blood cells when she was born. (smore.com)
  • Reprogrammed cells can also make models of human disease. (wect.com)
  • The photograph opposite shows the ability of the pulp cells to mineralize more tooth substance in response to injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • primary
  • These data can be used to develop screening guidelines for early identification and prevention of CMR in SCI, as well as targeted approaches to primary disease management. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • research
  • This paved the way for Mario Capecchi, Martin Evans, and Oliver Smithies to create the first knockout mouse, ushering in a whole new era of research on human disease. (wikipedia.org)
