Have you ever wondered how your body can heal cuts, scrapes, and broken bones? The answer lies in stem cells. Stem cells can differentiate into specific functions, such as skin, muscle, and bone cells. This ability to differentiate makes stem cells incredibly versatile and powerful in promoting natural healing in the body.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are increasingly used as regenerative therapies for patients in the preclinical and clinical phases of various diseases. However, the main limitations of such therapies include functional heterogeneity and the lack of appropriate quality control (QC) methods for functional screening of MSC lines; thus, clinical outcomes are inconsistent.
A Yale Medicine orthopedic surgeon has developed an innovative procedure that uses a patient's own stem cells to treat a condition that can cause painful hip fractures.
