Metabolic Syndrome and Exhausted Stem Cell Pools
Revitacell Clinic, Spain
One of the most important and multifaceted diseases of modern society is the “metabolic syndrome”. This syndrome has not been fully understood, and for that reason there is still no effective treatment available. I suggest that a possible mechanism of stem cells is involved in the development of the metabolic syndrome. This point of view also allows us to consider other important pathologies that could have similar etiopathogenic pathways, such as aging. All these clinical situations could be the consequence of a progressive and persistent stem cell loss syndrome. The main result of this stem cell loss would be an irreversible fall of effective regenerative mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) groups. In this way, the normal body repair capabilities could become ineffective. This concept could open the possibility of a new treatment strategy in the metabolic syndrome and even aging: stem cell therapies.
