The Benefits of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Treatment of Cardiovascular and Neurodegenerative Disease

Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stromal cells that have the ability to differentiate, or become, a variety of cell types, including bone cells, cartilage cells, fat cells, and muscle cells. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are ideal for treating many kinds of injuries and disease, and can be derived from many different kinds of tissue including; bone marrow, adipose tissue, cord blood and cord tissue.

Unique Risk Factors that Increase the Risk of Stroke in Women

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in women, and stroke kills twice as many women as breast cancer.  Stroke affects more women than men each year and the mortality is much higher for women, so it is important to understand the unique risk factors that increase a woman’s risk of stroke. As part of a special issue of the journal Stroke, investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston reviewed the risk factors for stroke that are specific to women including; hormone levels, hormone therapy, hormone birth control, pregnancy, the age of menarche and the age of menopause.1 Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and
