Endocrine Stem Cell Therapy

Abstract

Throughout life, different types of stem cells participate in tissue generation, maintenance, plasticity, and repair. Their abilities to secrete growth factors, to proliferate and differentiate into several cell lineages, and to migrate and home into the damaged tissues have made them attractive candidates for cell therapy and tissue engineering applications. Normal stem cell function is tied to the cell-intrinsic mechanisms and extrinsic signals derived from the surrounding microenvironment or circulation. Understanding the regulatory signals that govern stem cell functions is essential in order to have full knowledge about organogenesis, tissue maintenance and tissue plasticity in the physiological condition. It is also important for optimizing tissue engineering and improving the therapeutic efficiency of stem cells in regenerative medicine. A growing body of evidence indicates that hormonal signals can critically influence stem cell functions in fetal, postnatal, and adult tissues. This review focuses on recent studies revealing how growth hormone, insulin, thyroid hormone, parathormone, adrenocorticotropin, glucocorticoids, erythropoietin, and gastrointestinal hormones control stem cell behavior through influencing survival, proliferation, migration, homing, and differentiation of these cells. Moreover, how environmental factors such as exercise, hypoxia, and nutrition might affect stem cell functions through influencing the endocrine system is discussed. Some of the current limitations of cell therapy and how hormones can help overcoming these limitations are briefly outlined.

More About Endocrine Stem Cell Therapy

Pediatric Intensive Cardiac Care

The pediatric intensive cardiac care team is dedicated to the care of treating children with congenital and acquired heart disease in our Pediatric Critical Care Unit. The unit is staffed by pediatric cardiac intensive care physicians who have specialized training and expertise in pediatric cardiac disease. These physicians are responsible for supervising the clinical care of critically ill patients admitted for surgery, cardiac catheterization and treatment of acute medical illnesses. Dedicated cardiac nurses, cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiac intensivists, cardiologists, cardiac nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, child life specialists and social workers all participate in the daily care of each patient.

The unit is just one of a few located in the tri-state area that provide extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) services and other forms of advanced mechanical and circulatory support, such as ventricular assist devices (VAD) to neonatal and pediatric patients with acute critical cardiopulmonary disease. The most complex surgical and medical patients are cared for in this multidisciplinary environment, where quality of care and patient safety are our top priorities.
