Stem Cell Therapy for Enhancement of Salvia Production
ANOVA Institute for Regenerative Medicine wants to help patients with Dry Mouth Syndrome to regenerate their salivary gland function with Stem Cell Therapy.
Dry mouth syndrome is very unpleasant for patients, because it comes with many undesirable side effects. Impairments of oral functions affect swallowing, chewing and speech, making every day joyous tasks such as appreciating a nice meal impossible. Additionally, the syndrome can also cause dental and other health problems due to insufficient hygiene functionality of the mouth.
Particularly in former Head and Neck Cancer patients who have been treated with radiotherapy, the prevalence of dry month syndrome, also called xerostomia, is high. Common treatment strategies merely provide short-term release, for instance by momentarily increasing lubrication.
Stem Cell Therapy is on the rise in the field of regenerative medicine. Mesenchymal Stem Cells have been known to enhance cell-renewing processes in the body. Recent clinical studies have found that stem cells can significantly improve salivary gland function.

The Power of Exosomes
The term “exosomes” has frequently been in the news in recent years. They have been known to biologists since their discovery in the 1980s, but they remain something unknown to most other people. As their relevance in the pharmaceutical and medical field increases, we want to explain in simple ways what exosomes are, and why they are disrupting science.
Stem Cell Treatment Improves Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) and Chronic Back Pain
Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is one of the most common sources of back pain and affects approximately 30 million people every year. It can lead to a chronic debilitating condition and can have a serious negative impact on a person's quality of life. Although several structures within the spine have been identified as sources of pain, the intervertebral disc accounts for approx. 40-50% of all chronic lower back pain. When pain from DDD is severe, traditional non-operative treatment may be ineffective.
Recent research has shown that the injection of bone marrow stem cells into degenerating discs can halt and in some cases even reverse their degeneration. This is important, because this in turn slows down or halts the cascade of secondary problems resulting from a degenerating discs, such as chronic back pain, restricted motion, spinal cord and nerve root compression with radiating pain in arms and legs, deformation and inflammation in vertebral bodies (osteochondrosis), facet joint arthrosis and others.
Does stem cell therapy for knees work?
As kids, nasty grazes aside, we may not have thought a lot about our knees. As adults, our situation is a little different. We may feel our joints hurt a little more often.
However, it’s not only those entering their twilight years who are susceptible to knee pain and degeneration. Anyone trying to maintain an active lifestyle or doing regular physical exercise will be no stranger to knee injuries.
Are knee surgeries the only way to treat these injuries and get rid of the pain? Luckily, no. Stem cell treatment is giving hope to patients worldwide. In this post, learn more about knee injuries and how stem cell-based treatments can offer a longer lasting solution to your knee problems..
Can stem cells help with orthopedic issues?
