MIAMI, Dec. 20, 2019 — Longeveron LLC, a leading developer of adult stem cell technologies for chronic, aging-related and life-threatening conditions, announced today that it has completed enrollment in its Phase 1 Alzheimer’s disease trial. This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of LMSCs in patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD). [Read more…]
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a well-characterized population of adult stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types (chondrocytes, osteoblasts, adipocytes, myocytes, and more).
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent progenitor cells capable of developing into a variety of cell types, such as adipocytes, chondrocytes, osteocytes, and cardiomyocytes. Population aging and an increasing prevalence of chronic disease are driving interest in MSC-based therapies.
Over the past 150 years, the average human lifespan has doubled and continued increases in life-expectancy are expected.
In China, the country expects to have half a billion people over the age 60 by 2050. In Japan, the government expects to have 50% of the population over 65 within two decades. Similar demographics are affecting Europe and the United States, all of which are accelerating the market opportunities for cell-based therapeutics, such as MSCs. [Read more…]
Mesenchymal stem cells are a class of multipotent cells found in human tissues, such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, dental pulp, and periosteum, a layer of connective tissue that envelops the bones. They are also known as: Medicinal Signaling Cells, Mesenchymal Stromal Cells, and Marrow Stromal Cells. Given this naming variability, as well as urging by Dr. Caplan to rename the cells so that patients don’t assume specific medical benefits, these cells are best known as: MSCs. [Read more…]

Can stem cell treatment for arthritis bring relief to those suffering from the disease?
From the dawn of history to present day, the swelling and aching of joints rank as one of the most troublesome indicators of age. As connective tissue breaks down over time, the result is stiffening, pain and immobility. While some are luckier than others, few seem to escape it entirely – which is why stem cell treatment for arthritis is appealing to so many. [Read more…]
