A Canadian doctor is recruiting patients for a "first of its kind" stem cell research project for osteoarthritis. The Phase II study could further advance the use of regenerative medicine in treating osteoarthritis, a joint disease for which treatment options are currently limited to pain medication, steroid injections or joint replacement surgery.
In new research from the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), scientists have shown that bioengineered uteri supported fertilization, fetal development, and live birth with normal offspring.
