Adipose (Fat) Stem Cells used to treat Heart Failure

Heart Failure

Tampa, Saint Petersburg and Clearwater, FL

Adipose stem cells have been used for a variety of medical disorders. Early work at UCLA in the 2000’s, revealed the adipose or fat tissue possessed a large reservoir of stem cells capable of differentiating into muscle, cartilage, and bone. Since then research and use of fat stem cells has grown significantly. Physicians at the Scripps Clinic have taken fat from the patient, and utilized the stem cells to treat heart failure. It may take 6 months to determine effectiveness. This is part of the Athena trial, and 45 patients will be in the clinical trial.

Degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis, has also been studied with fat stem cells, as well as bone marrow stem cells. An interesting finding with fat stem cells is as we age, the numbers of stem cells in fat do not decrease to the extent that bone marrow cells do. For this reason, using the patients own fat is an attractive source of stem cells for  treatment.
