FOLLOW UP STUDY PROVES SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF STEM CELLS FOR BACK PAIN

81% OF PARTICIPANTS AVOIDED BACK SURGERY TWO YEARS LATER WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS

The Article Accepted and Published by The US National Library of Medicine, featured in International Orthopaedics on July 10, 2015; “Treatment of discogenic back pain with autologous bone marrow concentrate injection with minimum two year follow-up.” Show there were no complications from the percutaneous bone marrow aspiration or disc injection. Of 26 patients, 24 (92 %) avoided surgery through 12 months, while 21 (81 %) avoided surgery through two years.

Total and rate of pain reduction were linked to mesenchymal stem cell concentration through 12 months. Only five of the 26 patients elected to undergo surgical intervention (fusion or artificial disc replacement) by the two year milestone. in conclusion, this study provides evidence of safety and feasibility in the non-surgical treatment of discogenic pain with autologous BMC, with durable pain relief (71 % VAS reduction) and ODI improvements (> 64 %) through two years.

What are stem cells, and why are they important?

Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. In addition, in many tissues they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.
