Stem Cells May Be Able to Reverse Stroke Brain Damage

Scientists have now shown that combining human stem cells with a specific protein can help the stem cells turn into neurons, thereby reversing brain damage associated with stroke. The research team, led by Berislav Zlokovic at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, published their findings in Nature Medicine in August….

Researchers Learning to Use Stem Cells to Repair Cartilage

A group of Japanese researchers have just released a study that advances our understanding of how we can use a specific type of stem cells to help patients recover from cartilage damage. This group worked with a specific type of stem cell called bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) because these cells confer a number…
