Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury in Malaysia 2020

Image
In recent years,  stem cell therapy  has gained popularity as a promising complementary treatment option for spinal cord injury. However, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet. Stem cells have been used extensively for many proven indications like leukemias or genetic disorders like thalassaemia. Bone marrow haematopoietic stem cell (HSCs) transplants have more than 35 years of patient applications in blood diseases and cancer. Due to its potential, stem cell therapy has also been repurposed into newer indications such as neurological disorders. A key issue in the treatment of neurologic diseases is that injurious processes are often irreversible because nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are unable to spontaneously regenerate. However, neural plasticity has been observed experimentally in both global and focal brain ischaemia in animal models ( Neurol India. 2009 ). Whe

Whether neurogenesis increases in response to brain and neural lesions or stem cells can be used for transplantation are the potential questions to be answered. Methods  Literature were searched through electronic databases which included PubMed.gov and ClinicalTrials.gov. The se

Can a cold give you coronavirus immunity? Some forms of common respiratory illness might help build protection from Covid-19... and it could last up to 17 YEARS, scientists say

The Science Times - Immunology experts recently released a paper suggesting that coronavirus immunity might be possible through a different genetic pattern of SARS, or the common cold. They claim that this possible immunity may last up to 17 years. Editor's Comment: Please take note the above study has been published as a pre-print i.e. not peer-reviewed. Coronavirus related symptoms that mimic the common cold, called betacoronavirus, may either have immunity or be infected by a milder form of the virus. Betacoronaviruses, specifically OC43 and HKU1, are the cause of common colds as well as severe chest infections, leaving the young and elderly in critical conditions. The beta virus has similar genetic features with its SARS family, such as COVID-19 and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). If an individual had been previously exposed to the common cold, the body develops memory T cells, which become a defense system when a similar infection enters the body, resulting in
