StemSave - Researchers Utilize Dental Stem Cells for Stroke Treatment

Researchers at Adelaide University have developed a potential therapy for stroke victims utilizing dental stem cells to regenerate damaged brain cells.

The study involved the use of human dental pulp stem cells in rats suffering from post- stroke symptoms. The stem cells were transplanted into the damaged brains of the rats with the rats showing significant improvement in brain function, motor skills and cognitive abilities within several weeks. The therapy poses a new possibility for patients who have suffered a stroke. Patients will be able to use stem cells extracted from their own teeth to regenerate damaged brain tissue. The use of autologous stem cells eliminates the risk of rejection and the need for immune-suppression drugs and results in a more positive outcome. The research is so promising that the researchers hope to begin clinical trials within three to four years.

The research is another example of the inherent plasticity of dental stem cells, i.e. their ability to differentiate into a wide range of tissue types that may be utilized to treat a broad array of disease, trauma and injury. Banking your own valuable dental stem cells for use in emerging regenerative therapies is both convenient and affordable and as easy as a trip to the dentists.
