Vertigo is a disorder of the inner ear that can cause a person to feel as if they are spinning or that their surroundings are spinning around them. It is a common condition, affecting up to one in three people at some point in their lives. Vertigo can be caused by a variety of things, including inner ear infections, head injuries, and certain medications. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many tissues throughout the body, including the bone marrow, adipose tissue, and even the umbilical cord. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including bone, cartilage, and fat cells. In recent years, MSCs have been shown to have promise in the treatment of a variety of diseases and disorders, including vertigo. A number of studies have shown that MSCs can reduce the symptoms of vertigo. In a study of rats with inner ear damage, MSCs were injected into the inner ear and found to reduce the symptoms of vertigo and improve hearing (1). Another study found that the injection of MSCs into the inner ears of rats with vertigo improved both the symptoms of vertigo and the function of the inner ear (2). MSCs have also been shown to be effective in the treatment of other inner ear disorders, such as Meniere's disease. In a small clinical trial, the injection of MSCs into the inner ear was found to be safe and effective in the treatment of Meniere's disease, with patients reporting a significant reduction in vertigo symptoms (3). The use of MSCs in the treatment of vertigo is still in its early stages, but the results of the studies that have been conducted so far are promising. MSCs offer a new and promising treatment option for vertigo and other inner ear disorders.
