Cellular therapy with human autologous adipose-derived adult cells of stromal vascular fraction for alopecia areata

Most common forms of hair loss (alopecia) are caused by aberrant hair follicle cycling and changes in hair follicle morphology. However, current treatments for alopecia do not specifically target these processes. Adipose-derived stromal vascular cells (ADSVCs) that can be harvested from fat cells are one of the latest breakthroughs in the aesthetic field.

In vivo clinical and radiological effects of platelet-rich plasma on interstitial supraspinatus lesion: Case series

Rotator cuff tear (RCT)is a frequent condition of clinical relevance that can be managed with asymptomatic conservative treatment, but surgery is often needed. Biological components like leukocytes and platelet-rich plasma (L-PRP) could represent an alternative curative method for interstitial RCT.

Current Therapeutic Strategies for Stem Cell-Based Cartilage Regeneration

The process of cartilage destruction in the diarthrodial joint is progressive and irreversible. This destruction is extremely difficult to manage and frustrates researchers, clinicians, and patients. Patients often take medication to control their pain. Surgery is usually performed when pain becomes uncontrollable or joint function completely fails.

Treatment of chronic low back pain – new approaches on the horizon

Back pain is the second leading cause of disability among American adults and is currently treated either with conservative therapy or interventional pain procedures.

Current Perspectives regarding Stem Cell-Based Therapy for Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder featuring memory loss and cognitive impairment, is caused by synaptic failure and the excessive accumulation of misfolded proteins. Many unsuccessful attempts have been made to develop new small molecules or antibodies to intervene in the disease’s pathogenesis.

Cellular Therapeutics for Heart Failure: Focus on Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Resulting from a various etiologies, the most notable remains ischemia; heart failure (HF) manifests as the common end pathway of many cardiovascular processes and remains among the top causes for hospitalization and a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Current pharmacologic treatment for HF utilizes pharmacologic agents to control symptoms and slow further deterioration

A Review of Platelet-Rich Plasma: History, Biology, Mechanism of Action, and Classification

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is currently used in different medical fields. The interest in the application of PRP in dermatology has recently increased. It is being used in several different applications as in tissue regeneration, wound healing, scar revision, skin rejuvenating effects, and alopecia.

Platelet-rich plasma as a treatment for plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis (PF) is a common lesion that occurs in the heel, and approximately 11% to 15% of adult foot symptoms require professional care. Pain is intensified by prolonged weight bearing, obesity, and gradually increased activity.

A Split Head Study of Efficacy of Placebo versus Platelet Rich Plasma Injections in the Treatment of Androgenic Alopecia

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentration of human platelets contained in a small volume of plasma with haemostatic and tissue repairing effects. Being enriched by various growth factors, PRP has become the focus of attention in numerous fields of medicine. Androgenic alopecia (AGA) is a common chronic hair loss disorder, characterised by progressive hair […]

Comparative Efficacy of Platelet Rich Plasma Injection, Corticosteroid Injection and Ultrasonic Therapy in the Treatment of Periarthritis Shoulder

Periarthritis (PA) shoulder characterised by pain and restricted range of motion has a plethora of treatment options with inconclusive evidence. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an emerging treatment option and its efficacy needs to be examined and compared with other routine interventions.
