Healthy CD34 cells are used to replace stem cells in people whose normal blood cells have been damaged by cancer or other serious autoimmune diseases. Because patients often do not have enough healthy cells for an effective treatment dose, the starting material for these transplants often comes from healthy donors.
According to BMC, after a study was conducted with patients that had Type II Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease, researchers found the Linagliptin improved CD34+ve Endothelial Progenitor Cells.
Type II diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disorder characterized by an impaired response to insulin production. There is a significant impairment of the endothelium in DM, and this endothelial dysfunction is a fundamental change that leads to cardiovascular disease progression. Endothelial dysfunction also plays an important role in the effects on neovascularization and impaired wound healing.
Researchers from the Third Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha, China found overexpressing c-Jun promoted accelerated wound healing.
The high levels of blood glucose common in people and animals with diabetes can lead to peripheral vascular disease, peripheral neuropathy, and an impaired immune response. The resultant decreased blood flow and lower immune cell migration to a wound impede the normal healing process. Medical approaches to consistently or reliably improve slow or nonhealing wounds is lacking. However, the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is being studied as an intervention to promote better cutaneous wound healing. MSCs are crucial for regenerative wound healing because they have the capacity to enhance cellular differentiation, immune-modulation, and release of growth factors needed for angiogenesis and re-epithelialization, thus promoting healthy granulation tissue formation.
Recent studies suggest that mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) of the maternal decidua may prove to be an effective treatment for patients suffering from preeclampsia.
Preeclampsia is one of the most common causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality, affecting as high as 8% of pregnant women worldwide. It is a severe cardiovascular disorder that develops after 20 weeks of pregnancy and is characterized by a sudden onset of hypertension, swelling of the limbs and face, proteinuria, and adverse effects on various organs, including the kidneys and liver. If left untreated, maternal organ damage can occur, and the fetus can be deprived of sufficient blood flow and oxygen. Eclampsia (seizures) and HELLP syndrome (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelet count) may also ensue.
Clinical trials all over the world are showing positive results when treating COVID-19 patients suffering from ARDS with MSCs.
The worldwide race to develop effective therapies for complications from COVID-19 infection are ongoing. Patients with particularly severe responses are often diagnosed with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
