  • Doctor saves man's foot with stem cell therapy
    Doctors in Dalton, Ga., used stem cell therapy to prevent amputation of a man's foot after a cut became infected with necrotizing fasciitis. After other interventions failed, podiatrist Spence Misner treated the wound with tissue grafts embedded with human stem cells. After repeated applications of the tissue, donated by manufacturer Osiris Therapeutics, ligament, muscle, fat and skin regrew. Chattanooga Times Free Press (Tenn.)

  • Honey-infused products may help heal cancer-related wounds
    Gels and dressings containing active leptospermum honey may encourage healing and reduce pain in wounds associated with cancer treatment, including surgical sites and radiation dermatitis, according to a study presented at a recent Oncology Nursing Society meeting. ALH works to decrease edema, stimulate cytokines and balance pH. Oncology Nurse Advisor online (4/26) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Stem cell coating may aid vascular tissue regeneration
    Researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, have developed a polymer coating designed to improve the adherence of stem cells to inflamed blood vessels, which could help heal vascular tissues in people with chronic diseases such as diabetes. The study showed that twice as many modified stem cells stuck to a sheet of endothelial tissue compared with standard stem cells. The results appear in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

  • Proposal under review on pay changes for home health aides
    The Office of Management and Budget is reviewing an Obama administration proposal to change Fair Labor Standards Act rules that would apply federal overtime and minimum-wage protections to home health aides and personal care workers employed by third parties. Opponents say the rule change would raise costs for people who wish to avoid institutional care and could affect continuity of care. Kaiser Health News (4/29) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Most Americans unprepared for future long-term care needs
    Although data suggest 70% of Americans will need long-term care sometime after age 65, data from the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research suggest many people underestimate that need, and two-thirds of Americans 40 and older have not made the necessary preparations. The majority of respondents said they expect to be cared for by family members, and many are under the mistaken assumption that Medicare will be able to shoulder their LTC needs.
