Latest British research has shown that wrinkles may be cured by using stem cells taken from person’s blood. Clinical trials will be conducted by Glasgow based biotechnology company, Pharmacells, in the coming years during which stem cell will be induced taken from blood to replace skin’s old cells.
“The ability of the body to produce this elastic material slows down with age because the number of these fibroblasts decreases.
“By introducing large numbers of stem cells into the right place, we are increasing the ability of the body to produce this material. It is still in its early stages but we hope to begin phase one trials within the next 12 months.”
Patents to isolate, harvest and storing new blood derived stem cell has been owned by Pharmacells. People even store their stem cells in a private stem cell bank developed by Pharmacells “for future use in personalised medicine”.
“We also supply ‘our’ adult cell line into many types of research projects, allowing others access to one of the more significant stem cell lines available anywhere in the world.”
Older methods used to collect stem cells from blood are not very effective as only five or ten million stem cells can be produced at a time. According to this company approximately 500 million stem cells can be collected from small amount of blood.
“By introducing large numbers of stem cells into the right place, we are increasing the ability of the body to produce this natural material. It will be long lasting, we think at least five years if not longer,” Haas added.
Blood-derived or haematopoietic stem cells are now a day’s used for the treatment of some type of cancer and researchers are also trying to use it variety of different diseases including leukemia and kidney diseases.
