Newsboy thIn previous posts, I have highlighted new research that shows the amazing potential of stem cells to repair organs, including the brain. Exciting new research at the University of Toronto is bringing stem cell therapy closer to reality. Dr. Molly Shoichet and her colleagues showed that a gel, which they originally designed to support stem cells and help them grow, also enhances the ability of stem cells to heal an organ after transplantation. The gel then dissolves and is absorbed by the body. The experiment was conducted in mice (which is a good first model for humans). Specifically Dr. Shoichet’s team transplanted stem cell-gel complexes into the brains of mice with stroke. Within weeks, the treated mice began to improve their motor skills. (Full story)
