NK Cell Therapy Explained: Next Generation Cancer Treatments

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, cancer

When discussing cutting-edge cancer treatments, NK cell therapy stands out due to its unique approach to using the body’s own natural defenses. Instead of relying on aggressive chemicals or radiation, this method employs natural killer cells to target and eliminate cancer cells directly. It’s an innovative way to minimize harm to healthy tissues and improve patient outcomes. While still in …

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, cancer

Chimeric antigen receptor-T cell treatment (CAR-T cell therapy) holds immense potential to revolutionize organ transplantation, particularly for patients who struggle to find a suitable match and are at high risk of rejection. This breakthrough therapy offers a beacon of hope, promising to significantly improve the outcomes and quality of life for these patients. Current research prioritizes using CAR-T cells obtained …

Metronomic cancer therapy

Metronomic therapy

Stem Cell Regeneration Center cancer, Glossary

Metronomic therapy refers to the administration of low, continuous, and regular doses of certain drugs (often chemotherapeutic agents) without extended rest periods. This dosing strategy stands in contrast to the more traditional “maximum-tolerated dose” approach, where high doses of chemotherapy are given with intervening rest periods to allow for patient recovery from side effects. Features and benefits of metronomic chemotherapy: …

Targeting cancer stem cells from a metabolic perspective

Targeting the metabolic system to defeat Cancer

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, cancer

Cancer patients with abnormal metabolism apoptosis evasion are considered to be hallmarks of many types of cancers. Cancer research has shown that cancer stem cells are often the key drivers of tumor formation, cancer progression, and recurrences. To successfully defeat malignant cells, therapies must eliminate cells that are resistant to apoptosis. Molecular Cancer Therapies Cancer stem cells or “CSC” are …

Rise in Parkinson’s disease linked to common household chemical

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, cancer

Scientists believe a ubiquitous environmental contaminant used in household products such as carpet cleaners, shoe polishes, and carpet cleaners might be responsible for the development of neurodegenerative movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease (PD). Parkinson’s disease is already one of the fastest-growing neurological disorders globally, with developing nations reporting an increase of over 30% in the last ten years. The …
