講座: 幹細胞治療的應用及展望 Application and Prospect of Stem Cell Therapy

Time 時間: 10am-12pm

Guest Speaker: Professor Lu-Chang, A-Lien 呂阿戀教授 

Host:  Dr. Chi Shiang Chen 陳吉祥醫師 


演講內容簡介:

我們常常想問:長生不老和返老還童有可能嗎? 幹細胞可否供給我們答案。請大家來聽呂阿戀教授的演講。

幹細胞是原始的、未特化的細胞,而保有轉化成其它細胞類型的能力。這種能力使得幹細胞能夠用來修護再生某種受到破壞的組織或器官。幹細胞有很多種類包括:1.胚胎幹細胞 (Embryonic stem cells), 2.成體幹細胞 (Adult stem cells), 3.誘導多能幹細胞 (iPSCs), 4. 癌幹細胞 (Cancer stem cells)。

以幹細胞來做治療的方法:

1. 利用幹細胞來尋求某些新的藥品。

2. 利用幹細胞來治療各種疾病。

各種疾病包括癌症、震顫麻痺症 (Parkinson’s disease) 、脊髓受傷 (Spinal cord injuries) 、肌萎縮性側索硬化症(Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-ALS) 、多發性硬化症 (Multiple sclerosis)、及肌肉的損傷等。

3. 器官移植的可能性。

利用幹細胞分化成各種器官,可以移植到自體或異體。

不久的將來,這些疾病的治療和器官移植,將因幹細胞研究的成果,而漸見曙光。不過以目前的技術來講,如果移植的幹細胞失去了控制,這些幹細胞則有可能形成腫瘤或癌症的可能性。目前用幹細胞能夠治療的疾病還是有限。必須小心受騙於非法的治療中心。

   

Introduction to the speech:

We often want to ask: Is it possible to live forever and rejuvenate? Can stem cells provide us with answers? Please join us to attend the speech given by Professor Lu-Chang, A-Lien.

Stem cells are primitive, unspecialized cells that retain the ability to transform into other cell types. This ability allows stem cells to be used to repair a damaged tissue or organ. There are many types of stem cells including: 1. Embryonic stem cells, 2. Adult stem cells, 3. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), 4. Cancer stem cells.

The method of treating with stem cells:


1. Use stem cells to find new drugs.

2. Use stem cells to treat various diseases.

Various diseases include cancer, Parkinson's disease, Spinal cord injuries, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Multiple sclerosis, and Muscle damage. .

3. The possibility of organ transplantation.

Differentiation of stem cells into various organs can be transplanted to autologous or allogeneic.

In the near future, the treatment and organ transplantation of these diseases will gradually dawn on the results of stem cell research. However, in the current technology, if the transplanted stem cells lose control, these stem cells may form a tumor or cancer. The diseases that can currently be treated with stem cells are still limited. Care must be taken to those illegal treatment centers.
