Stem Cell Hope for Stroke

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Stroke is the leading cause of permanent disability in the U.S., striking nearly 800,000 people each year. Hemorrhagic, or bleeding, stroke is particularly devastating, says Mayo Clinic neurologist and critical care expert William Freeman, M.D. “About 40 percent of hemorrhagic stroke patients die within a month, and half of the survivors have some type of impairment,” he adds. Dr. Freeman, […]

The Case for Stem Cell Treatments for ALS

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

When nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord stop working normally there is a noticeable change in muscle movement and activity. Motor neurons work with the brain to control muscle movement such as gripping and walking. These activities become increasingly difficult with the onset of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou […]
