Wharton’s Jelly for Homologous Tissue Support

Wharton’s Jelly for Homologous Tissue Support

Wharton’s jelly is the gelatinous substance within the umbilical cord.  It provides insulation and protection within the umbilical cord.  It is a gelatinous substance made largely from mucopolysaccharides. It contains a host of growth factors, cytokines, pathway signaling molecules, and stem cells that have regenerative properties.  Wharton’s jelly also has several other favorable characteristics including strength, flexibility, cushioning, covering, compressibility, and response to friction and shear.

Exosomes, What, When and Why

Exosomes, What, When and Why.  There has been increasing hype about the benefits of Exosomal therapy for a wide variety of medical conditions ranging from regenerative medicine applications to systemic disease such as Lyme.   But what are exosomes?  They are most easily thought of as a soup of extra-cellular messengers.  They are growth factors, facilitators and initiators, and anti-inflammatory agents.  They typically come from mesenchymal stem cells in amniotic fluid that has been sterilized and filtered.   They are rich by products of stem cells and frequently referred to as the responsible agents that make stem cells work.   Many studies suggest that stem cells work because they extrude exosomes.  If not for exosomes no regenerative response would occur.

Treatment Opportunities for Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatment Opportunities for Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy

Cancer is a serious illness that requires the use of some very strong medicines for treatment. Chemotherapy is one of those medications, and while it has proven to be successful in treating cancer, it also has some adverse side effects, including peripheral neuropathy.

What is Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a set of symptoms caused by damage to the nerves that control the movement and sensations of our legs and arms. Some chemotherapy drugs used to treat cancer can cause damage to these nerves. When this happens, it is called Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy, or CIPN.
