New Way of Manipulating Stem Cells Leads to Healthy Nerve Cells in Animal Study
Scientists have created a special matrix that allowed them to differentiate stem cells into nerve cells that, when transplanted into a rat model of Parkinson’s disease, eased the animals’ symptoms by replacing those nerve cells lost to the disease. This matrix is also able to stimulate differentiation of stem cells, prodding them to become nerve cells, without a need for ... read more
