  • 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)
  • There is some evidence that HBOT is effective for late radiation tissue injury of bone and soft tissues of the head and neck. (wikipedia.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 cell
  • In studies done with people just diagnosed with this disease, they compared a group they infused with blood cord stem cell while another group was given a placebo. (smore.com)
  • As any disorder involving loss of, or injury to, normal cells could be a candidate for stem cell replacement therapy, the potential of stem cells is profound. (mja.com.au)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • genetics
  • The so-called induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC's) that a Japanese group figured how to make from ordinary body cells in 2007 are already being used in many labs to study the genetics of these diseases, along with cells from the most controversial source: donated human embryos. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • human
  • Price said pigs are often used as models of human diseases due to their anatomical and physiological similarities to humans. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • (CNN) -- In a pair of landmark studies, two groups of scientists announced Tuesday that they have reprogrammed human skin cells to act like embryonic stem cells, whose potential to mature into any other kind of cell in the body may ultimately prove key to curing a number of diseases. (cnn.com)
  • However, some studies have reported isolating neural stem cells from the human fetal spinal cord. (mja.com.au)
  • Other potential uses of embryonic stem cells include investigation of early human development, study of genetic disease and as in vitro systems for toxicology testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • Embryonic
  • Researchers have long considered research into embryonic stem cells as a promising avenue to replacing certain disease-damaged cells. (cnn.com)
  • people
  • Envision people tragically paralyzed whose injured spinal cords can be repaired. (eurekalert.org)
  • Despite the scientists' excitement, much work remains to be done before the advances can be used to treat disease in people, they said. (cnn.com)
  • Some people with radiation injuries of the head, neck or bowel show an improvement in quality of life. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physical
  • Physical therapy attempts to address the illnesses, or injuries that limit a person's abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. (wikipedia.org)
  • After the development of orthopedics in the eighteenth century, machines like the Gymnasticon were developed to treat gout and similar diseases by systematic exercise of the joints, similar to later developments in physical therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since the profession's inception, spinal manipulative therapy has been a component of the physical therapist practice. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • Think
  • I still think that overall therapeutic cloning is bad because while it may cure one patient it ends up creating more diseases. (smore.com)
  • function
  • This includes providing therapeutic treatment in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • 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)
