In a recent study performed by the scientists at Georgia Tech College of Engineering and Emory University School of Medicine it was found that stem cells may be able to be directed by a magnetic force. During their experiment it was found that stem cells that were fed minute particles of magnetised iron oxide were able to be guided by a magnet. This experiment has enlightened new more precise hopes for the future of stem cell therapy which could possibly be implemented in the coming years. Here at Macquarie Stem Cells in Sydney we are passionate about the future of this revolutionary treatment and we truly believe that it is what holds the ‘cures’ of the future.
This technique is extremely interesting to us here at Macquarie Stem Cells because we are always trying to improve the stem cell process for our patients. The fine details of this procedure were simple, yet extremely effective. First of all, the young scientists infused the mesenchymal stem cells with magnetised iron oxide, which were then marked with a fluorescent dye which could then be tracked within the body of the subjects. By magnetising certain areas of the body the scientists were able to guide the stem cells to specific areas such as a leg arm or the heart area. Without this magnetic guide stem cells generally gravitate towards the lungs and liver, which means this procedure could maximise the effectiveness of stem cells.
At the moment the most beneficial and effective way to utilise stem cells to treat problems within the body is through injection. For this procedure it is absolutely imperative that you visit a Centre of Excellence and a doctor with intricate knowledge of the human body and extremely efficient stem cell skills. Dr Ralph Bright and Dr Wayne Thomas are both leaders in the stem cell biology industry. They are known nationally for their work with stem cells and are passionate about improving the quality of their patients’ lives through the efficient treatment of painful or potentially harmful conditions.
Stem cell therapy is most effective when used to treat osteoarthritis and joint pain, although it can also be used on numerous other conditions. Macquarie Stem Cells is proud to offer stem cell therapy to treat:
Osteoarthritis is when the cartilage within a joint begins to become eroded, causing bone-on-bone friction. This can be extremely painful for the individual and if you suffer from osteoarthritis or chronic joint pain you can rest assured that Macquarie Stem Cells can provide a relatively comfortable treatment to alleviate these conditions.
Here at Macquarie Stem Cells we will extract adipose fat tissue (which is rich in stem cells) from your body. We will then put this through a process known as ultrasonic cavitation which purifies the stem cells and strips the cells of fat. These cells will then be re-injected into your body by one of our doctors so that the regenerative process can begin.
