What Stem Cells Can Do for Your Ulcerative Colitis

It is estimated that more than 750,000 people in North America are affected by ulcerative colitis (UC), according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Though there is no known ulcerative colitis cure, many people treat their ulcerative colitis with medications. Unfortunately, these treatments vary in effectiveness, and many patients continue to suffer from many painful symptoms.

However, a new ulcerative colitis treatment is available to help those who suffer from the debilitating condition. This treatment uses a patient’s own stem cells to help provide ulcerative colitis pain relief and healing. Could this stem cell ulcerative colitis treatment be right for you? Read on to learn more about ulcerative colitis, traditional treatment options, and the latest advances in stem cell therapy for ulcerative colitis.

What is Ulcerative Colitis?

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition that causes the body’s gastrointestinal tract to become unusually inflamed. Over time, this inflammation can cause damage to the GI tract. Like Crohn’s disease, acute ulcerative colitis is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), although there is a key difference when it comes to ulcerative colitis vs. Crohn’s disease. Ulcerative colitis occurs only in the large intestine and rectum, while Crohn’s disease can impact any area of the GI tract but usually affects the small intestine.

Patients with ulcerative colitis usually develop it between the ages of 15 and 30, according to NIH. While several symptoms can indicate a patient has ulcerative colitis, the root problem is the inflammation and the pain and damage that come when it causes colon ulcers and sores to develop.

What is the Main Cause of Ulcerative Colitis?

Inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis are caused by defects in the immune system, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Instead of the immune system protecting the body by attacking only foreign things like bacteria or viruses, the immune system becomes triggered by other elements, causing the gastrointestinal tract to become inflamed.

What are the Early Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis?

Ulcerative colitis can be extremely painful to those who suffer from it. UC symptoms are the same as many of the signs of Crohn’s disease and may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Appetite loss
  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal pain or cramping
  • Frequent Diarrhea
  • Stools containing blood, mucus or pus
  • Rectal pain
  • Fever

How Serious is Ulcerative Colitis?

Apart from being a miserable condition to live with day to day, ulcerative colitis can have serious negative effects on a person’s health. A large amount of ongoing bleeding in the colon can cause anemia. The intestine can lose some of its ability to absorb nutrients and water, leading to unhealthy levels of weight loss. Increase inflammation can lead to problems in other parts of the body as well, including the liver, kidneys, eyes, joints, and skin.

Then there’s the big question: Can a person die from ulcerative colitis?

The answer is yes. People with ulcerative colitis are at greater risk of developing colon cancer, particularly if they have had ulcerative colitis for 8 years or longer or if their entire colon is inflamed. In rare instances, ulcerative colitis can cause toxic megacolon, where the colon widens and harbors a bacterial infection that can be deadly.

How is Ulcerative Colitis Diagnosed?

Physicians may use a colonoscopy along with imaging technology to form an ulcerative colitis diagnosis. They may also use blood tests or stool samples to rule out other possible causes for the inflammation, such as infection.

How to Treat Ulcerative Colitis

Is there a cure for ulcerative colitis? Unfortunately, there is no known ulcerative colitis cure, according to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. However, there is more than one kind of treatment for colitis, according to the CDC. The primary methods of ulcerative colitis treatment include medications such as steroids to fight against inflammation, and vaccinations to help prevent infections. In some cases, ulcerative colitis surgery may be required to remove the parts of the large intestine that have become damaged.

And then there are stem cells. According to an article published in the medical journal Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology, “stem cell therapy is emerging as a promising treatment alternative” that could avoid the pitfalls of medications, reduce the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, and reduce the need for surgery to treat ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

How do stem cells hold the key to ulcerative colitis treatment? Adult stem cells can be found circulating around inside our bodies, but they exist in particular abundance in our bone marrow and our adipose (fat) tissue. Stem cells also have a unique ability to produce or turn into whatever cells are needed to carry out repairs in the body: muscle cells, blood cells, tissue cells, etc. All that it takes to set this healing process in motion is to extract stem cells from one of the stores in a patient’s body, isolate the cells, and inject them back into the body wherever treatment is needed. The stem cells are then able to help repair and restore the cells and tissue at the injection site, leading to a potential reduction in pain and symptoms.

Stem cell therapy is not suitable for everyone, but it has shown promising results for a wide range of patients with various medical conditions.

The Exosome and its Role in Therapy

Everything You Need to Know about Exosome Therapy/Treatment

What are Exosomes?

Exosomes are cell-based vesicles found in many and maybe even all eukaryotic fluids. They’re about 30 to 100 nm in diameter.

Vesicles are fluid-filled blisters or cysts. Eukaryotic fluids include blood, urine, and the cultured medium of cell cultures.

In other words, an exosome is like a tiny fluid-filled bubble released from a cell.

Why are Exosomes Important?

Science discovered the exosome decades ago, but for a long while, researchers didn’t think it was particularly important. That began to change when, in 2007, Jan Lotvall from the University of Gottenburg proved that some cells use exosomes to transfer genetic material from one to another.

Specifically, an exosome can transfer microRNAs to control the expression of a gene, and messenger RNAs to manufacture proteins. They also transfer proteins themselves, lipids, and DNA.

That meant exosomes play a significant role in health, notably, the functioning of the immune system, disease, and might even be useful to treatment and therapy for disease.

How are Exosomes Involved in Disease?

A series of studies have shown that, just as exosomes transfer RNA for healthy bodily functioning, they can also spread metabolic problems like obesity and diabetes and diseases like cancer. A recent study even implicated them in the distribution of a plaque-forming protein that accumulates in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

Once scientists understood the role of exosomes in the development of disease, they began to consider the possibility that exosomes might also have the power to spread molecules that fight disease.

How do Doctors Isolate Exosomes?

Of course, before scientists could use exosomes for either basic research or clinical applications, they first had to find a way to work with them. Generally speaking, scientists isolate them via high-speed centrifugation of animal or cellular supernatant fluids. The result is an enriched preparation that can then be studied via biochemistry, electron microscopes, or mass spectrometry.

How do Doctors use Exosomes?

As mentioned above, scientists hypothesize a number of therapeutic uses for exosomes. It’s important to remember, though, that by and large, this research is still in its early stages. The results of various animal studies are promising. The results from human studies are only just beginning to emerge although cancer exosome diagnostics are already available.

It’s possible that, as a signaling or messenger system between cells, the exosome can be used to convey drugs to parts of the body that are otherwise difficult to reach, like the brain. They could, in theory, be used for the delivery of therapies involving small molecules, viral genes, RNA, proteins, and even CRISPR gene editing tools.

Studies with mice have shown that exosomes can be used to deliver interfering RNA that blocked production in the brain of a protein associated with Alzheimer’s and also provided therapy for cancer cells. Exosomes allowed the suppression of the mutant protein KRas, a cancer target notoriously difficult to drug, and provided a better therapy delivery system than lipid nanoparticles without triggering an immune response.

Other researchers are exploring the usefulness of mixtures of natural exosomes and synthetic liquid nanoparticles to deliver therapy to hard-to-reach targets like the sensory cells in the inner ear.

Some scientists even believe that, in addition to operating as an efficient drug delivery system, exosomes themselves, when derived from stem cells, may have therapeutic applications.

Doctors attempting to find a way to treat lung damage in newborn babies used human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). They were thus able to reduce inflammation and repair lung tissue in mice.

Eventually, though, the scientists discovered that the MSCs themselves couldn’t be responsible for the therapeutic improvement. They didn’t stay around long enough. After years of further study, the researchers found it was actually exosomes released by the stem cells that were helping the mice.

Similarly, efforts are underway to use exosomes derived from stem cells that were in turn derived from heart tissue to provide therapy for cardiac problems and inflammatory and trauma-related conditions.

Using pig and rodent subjects, researchers investigated the therapeutic effect of exosomes derived from human neural stem cells and MSCs on stroke. They found that recovery of motor movement improved and so did the preservation of brain cells.

Key Issues in Exosome Therapy

Based on exosome diagnostics, exosome therapy research is still in its early stages. With exosomes diagnostics,  it’s fair to say that scientists have, at most, only a very limited understanding of the mechanism that makes stem cell-derived exosomes therapeutic. Indeed, there isn’t even universal agreement on what marker differentiates an exosome from some other sort of vesicle.

It’s also a difficult process just to produce exosomes in sufficient quantities for study, and the diversity of vesicles present in the body complicates research and the interpretation and replication of results.

For these and other reasons, patients should understand that exosome therapy is hardly a cure-all and be leery of exaggerated claims about its benefits. At the same time, early findings of exosome diagnostics suggest that its future could be very bright indeed.

 

 

4 Recent Medical Breakthroughs

As we know, the medical industry continues to evolve over the decades. But not everything put into practice today was readily accepted at first, including recent medical breakthroughs.

Take for instance what happened to Barry J. Marshall and J. Robin Warren 33 years ago. Their theory that bacteria can cause stomach ulcers was not well received by their peers or within the medical industry. Why? Their peers argued that it was impossible for bacteria to live in an acidic environment found in the stomach. Determine to prove his point, Marshall drank a petri dish that contained bacteria, including Helicobacter pylori. From his experiment, he found that his initial symptoms and infection was indeed, stomach ulcers.

On October 3, 2005, Marshall and Warren were awarded The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of “the bacterium Helicobacter pylori and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease”. Because of that discovery, it has helped the prevention and treatment of gastritis and peptic stomach ulcers.

In short, there have been many recent medical breakthroughs that were looked down on initially before receiving the recognition as improving medical practices.

We discuss four recent medical breakthroughs that were initially rejected below.

1. Bone Marrow Transplant

After World War II, the idea of bone marrow transplants became popular when doctors and scientist were looking for more effective treatment options to those suffering from leukemia. Bone marrow was very susceptible to radiation, which was the treatment at the time. In 1956, Dr. E. Donnall Thomas performed the first successful bone marrow transplant between identical twins, where a healthy twin gave their bone marrow to the other twin who suffered from leukemia.

Prior to this, performing bone marrow transplants were somewhat controversial because of the high mortality rate from the transplant. M. Teresa de la Morena, MD explains, “Five decades ago, the concept of bone marrow transplantation to treat humans with inherited disease of immune function, marrow failure syndromes, and leukemia was met with much skepticism, degrees of enthusiasm, and many disappointments…Certain death due to the primary disease, characterized the outcomes of individuals who were considered for transplantation. Consequently these patients became the sickest on the medical wards, and the physicians caring for such patients were posed with many questions regarding the benefits of such attempts.”

However, as this procedure continued to evolve, in 1968, Dr. Robert Good used a bone marrow transplant to treat a non-cancer patient and in 1973, the first bone marrow transplant was performed between unrelated patients. From its evolution, bone marrow transplants are now considered a standard treatment for patients suffering from inherited immune system disorders, leukemia and sickle cell anemia.

2. Antiseptic Handwashing

Before Louis Pasteur’s discovery that infectious diseases were spread by germs, Hungarian physician Ignaz Semmelweis saw the importance of antiseptic techniques for doctors when treating patients. However, many of his peers dismissed the practice.

During the 19th century, Semmelweis worked in a Vienna maternity ward and noticed that many patients were being infected by puerperal fever. How? The doctors and students were performing autopsies and then, due to lack of sanitation, infecting new mothers in the maternity ward.

From that discovery, Semmelweis advocated that the students and doctors disinfect their hands before helping the new mothers. His hand-washing policy significantly decreased the puerperal fever mortality rate in the maternity ward.

washing hands3. Balloon Angioplasty

In 1977, Andreas Grüntzig developed a functioning balloon catheter and with it, was able to perform a successful nonoperative dilatation of a coronary stenosis on a conscious 38-year-old Swiss man. It was a year prior, when at the annual American Heart Association meeting, Grüntzig was told by other doctors and peers that his tool would never work.

But the news didn’t stop his pursuit to treat patients suffering from coronary disease with his mechanism and to do so while the patient was conscious. Today, the balloon angioplasty mechanism is commonly used to treat patients with peripheral arterial disease.

4. Regenerative Medicine

According to the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure, regenerative medicine “is based on the principles of stem cell technology and tissue engineering in order to replace or regenerate human tissues and organs and restore their functions.” As mentioned above, the first successful cell transplantation happened in 1956 as a bone marrow transplant from one identical twin to the other. In 1998, scientists were able to isolate stem cells from developing human embryos.

As such, these cells were instrumental in helping regenerate cells as well as improve healing after illness or injury — all without the side effects or invasiveness of surgery. However, the means of harvesting these stem cells became controversial. It wasn’t until 2006 when scientists discovered how to harvest from a patient’s own cells.

About Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are a naturally occurring cell type that can be found all throughout the human body, and it is these cells that make it possible for the body to regenerate and heal itself after an injury or illness. Stem cells can help to repair many other cell types, such as skin, muscle, nerve or even bone cells.

Thanks to continued study and research, stem cells can now be harvested from adult patients and used in their stem cell therapy. Today, adult stem cells can be found in concentrated areas throughout the body including bone marrow, blood, muscle tissue, and adipose tissue. By using your own cells, it can help improve recovery and your health.

New Alzheimer’s Therapy Stem Cells

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is one of the most devastating neurological conditions that affect millions of people across the world. It generally manifests in mid to late adulthood and is marked by a sudden and drastic decline in mental sharpness and memory power. The brain’s neurons become damaged to the point they can no longer work as they should. An effective Alzheimer’s treatment is one of science’s holy grails, and many doctors believe it is destined to be found through stem cell therapy. Alzheimer’s disease treatments have come a long way in recent years, and thanks to new stem cell treatments and therapies it is no longer the incurable and untreatable death sentence that it was just a decade ago. Here at NSI Stem Cell, we are committed to helping individuals and their families suffering from Alzheimer’s regain the quality of life this disease has stolen from them.

Symptoms of AD

When the disease first becomes noticeable in an individual, the only noticeable symptoms tend to be mild confusion or increasing forgetfulness. However, the disease can quickly progress, and in time the disease worsens. The brain functions continue to degenerate to the point that it robs a patient of most of their memories. If a person does not get Alzheimer’s help in the form of treatments or therapy, they will experience a drastic worsening of symptoms including severe disorientation, problems speaking, difficulty with writing, social withdrawal, and severe bouts of anxiety and depression. Patients suffering from this disease can lose their ability to think and reason, make decisions, have clear judgment, stay focused on assignments, maintain conversations, and perform even simple tasks. They become completely dependent on others for everything and are unable to live and function on their own. This is why it is such a debilitating disease and why stem cell research and the search for a new treatment for Alzheimer disease has been forefront for many medical professionals.

Stem Cell Therapy At NSI Stem Cell

“Scientists believe that for most people, Alzheimer’s disease is caused by a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that affect the brain over time. Less than 5 percent of the time, Alzheimer’s is caused by specific genetic changes that virtually guarantee a person will develop the disease. Although the causes of Alzheimer’s aren’t yet fully understood, its effect on the brain is clear. Alzheimer’s disease damages and kills brain cells. A brain affected by Alzheimer’s disease has many fewer cells and many fewer connections among surviving cells than does a healthy brain” (Mayo Clinic). Stem cell therapy is now widely available throughout the U.S. at advanced medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell Centers in Florida. It has already changed the face of many treatments as varied as Diabetes and TBI to MS and Hair Loss. Now we have the exciting promise of a future that is free from Alzheimer’s Disease and a way to help heal the devastating damage. NSI is keeping a close eye on the developments that may one day lead to a cure for this and many other neurological disorders, injuries, and diseases. Though they are still new compared to other treatments, Alzheimer’s disease treatments using stem cell therapy are showing great promise!

Natural Alzheimer’s Treatment Using Stem Cell Therapy

Adipose-derived stem cells can be easily harvested from a patient’s own fatty tissue. They have the ability to become virtually any type of tissue needed by the body in order to repair, regenerate, and heal on a cellular level. Unspecified stem cells can differentiate into blood, skin, muscle, nerve, and potentially even brain and neuron cells. This means stem cells have the potential to repair brain cells, and even grow new ones. This is a huge step forward in the treatment of not just Alzheimer’s, but other neurological diseases as well.

Until recently, Alzheimer’s has always been considered to be incurable with little to no treatment options. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, due to “the widespread nature of AD pathology, cell replacement strategies have been viewed as an incredibly challenging and unlikely treatment approach. Yet, recent work shows that transplantation of neural stem cells (NSCs) can improve cognition, reduce neuronal loss, and enhance synaptic plasticity in animal models of AD…Patient-derived (cells) may help to advance our understanding of disease mechanisms. Likewise, studies of human embryonic and neural stem cells are helping to decipher the normal functions of AD-related genes; revealing intriguing roles in neural development” (NCBI). What does all this mean for Alzheimer’s treatment through stem cell therapy? It holds great potential to bring fresh, regenerative cells directly to the brain.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to understand that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for natural healing. They can repair everything in the body from ligaments and tendons to neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t fully trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet. This has drawn patients from all over the world including professional athletes and celebrities.

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

Type I Diabetes is actually an autoimmune disorder that occurs when the body’s own immune system
destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Due to the fact that the body no longer produces its
own insulin, this type of Diabetes has to be controlled with insulin injections for the rest of the patient’s
life. Type I Diabetes typically occurs in adolescence, and around 5-10% of the millions who suffer from
Diabetes have Type I.
Type II Diabetes is much more prevalent that Type I and it occurs when the pancreas does not make
enough insulin or the body cannot use the insulin well enough, otherwise known as insulin resistance. Type
II Diabetes is largely caused by diet and lifestyle. Did you know that around 90% of the patients who suffer
from Diabetes have Type II? This is why making smart food choices can go a long way in preventing and
treating this disease. Here is a great recipe to start off with.
 Makes: 4 servings
