Stem Cells From Fat May Be Used in Anti-Aging Treatments

Anti-aging treatments tend to be big business and researchers are always looking for new ways to combat the signs of aging. In a new study from the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, it would seem that stem cells that are taken from fat may in fact be used to make effective anti-aging treatments. While looking at the way cells age chronologically, they were able to determine that there could be an added benefit to these cells in preventing the signs of getting older. The study findings were published in the journal Stem Cells.

Stem cells from fat could potentially be more effective in anti-aging treatments

According to researchers, when they take adult stem cells from human fat, it ends up being far more stable than when it is taken from other cells. Looking at chronological aging of cells and their natural life cycle, the researchers developed a system to store and collect them without needing to manipulate them in order to do an effective study. What they found was that stem cells from fat are able to make more proteins than they had previously believed. This is important because it gives them the ability to not only maintain their overall stability, but to also replicate. They found that no matter how old the person was when the cells were collected, this remained true.

The lead author of the study and director of Basic Science Research in the Center for Human Appearance at the University, Dr. Ivona Percec, shared that what they found was that these particular cells are quite robust, even when the patients they are collected from are older. She said it also means these stem cells can possibly be used in the future safely since they do not require much maintenance or manipulation. According to the doctor, unlike gathering these cells from other areas, the ones gathered from fat stay consistent when the multiply no matter what the age is.

All this means is that fat derived stem cells are even more stable and helpful in terms of studying how one ages naturally. While many anti-aging products may already use some form of these cells in their treatments, moving forward it looks like there could be a more effective alternative in the form of the cells if they are collected from fat instead. Although these stem cells have not yet been directly approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in anti-aging treatments, with more research into how they work and how safe they can be, it is possible that at some point they will be approved and will end up being more effective than the cells currently in use.
