Stem cell therapy for weight loss

Obesity is associated with numerous physiological abnormalities. In a subset of patients these abnormalities lead to altered metabolism so that even reduction in caloric intake has minimal effect on body mass. This patent application is based on clinical findings that various stem cell populations, especially derived from liposuction mononuclear cells, are capable of inducing weight-loss in subsets of patients.
