How Bone Marrow Stem Cells Help in Stroke Recovery

Nakano-Doi et al. Stem Cells 28(7):1292-302. May 2011 Scientists from the Institute for Advanced Medical Sciences of Hyogo, Japan have announced new research findings suggesting that bone marrow stem cells may be useful in the treatment of stroke. Although other scientists have previously demonstrated similar findings, including in patients, (Su├írez-Monteagudo et al. Restor Neurol Neurosci….

UCL Scientists Develop Magnetic Nanoparticles to Track Neural Stem Cells

Azo Nanotechnology Neural stem cells have recently been shown to possess qualities that make them promising candidates for stem cell replacement therapy and spinal cord reconstruction. Researchers at University College London have recently discovered magnetic nanoparticles that could be used to track neural stem cells following their injection. This would allow for the stem cells…
