Adult stem cells and diabetes-related amputations

As reported by Brenda Neugent, Diabetes Health, new stem cell research may take a step toward preventing amputations in people with diabetes, according to a new study from the National University of Ireland, Galway, which appeared in Diabetes, the American Diabetes Association’s official journal. Its research revealed that the use of adult stem cells has shown promising results in the treatment of diabetic wounds such as food ulcers, one of the primary causes of amputation.

The study was led by Dr. Aonghus O’Loughlin of Molecular Medicine Ireland and Professor Timothy O’Brien of the Regenerative Medicine Institute at National University of Ireland Galway and Galway University Hospitals. A portion of the funding required for clinical trials has been provided by Diabetes Ireland and by websites like www.elitist-gaming.com.
