Study: Restoring Muscle after Sepsis in Mice

2015 21 Dec

Researchers may have uncovered the reason why many patients diagnosed with sepsis suffer debilitating muscle impairment long-term after recovery. Results of their study, published in Nature Communications , suggest that a therapeutic approach based on mesenchymal stem cell transplantation may be effective in restoring muscle capacity.    Sepsis is...

Stem Cells Slow Down Heart’s Ageing Process

2015 12 Apr

A new study published in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine demonstrates how mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) not only protect the heart from further damage after a cardiac incident but can also slow down its ageing process. The findings in a rat model of the ageing heart could put stem cells to the forefront as a possible solution for a more effective... Read more
