Experimental & Molecular Medicine - Mesenchymal stem cells: environmentally responsive therapeutics for regenerative medicine

Experimental & Molecular Medicine - Mesenchymal stem cells: environmentally responsive therapeutics for regenerative medicine | Stem Cells & Tissue Engineering | Scoop.it

Via Richard D. Hammer, M.D.
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

This open-access review describes the characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells and their therapeutical potential for regenerative medicine.

Motor neurone disease: how could stem cells help?

Motor neurone disease: how could stem cells help? | Stem Cells & Tissue Engineering | Scoop.it
What is motor neurone disease?The term motor neurone disease (MND) describes several different conditions that all affect nerve cells called motor neurons. Motor neurons are found in the brain and spinal cord.
Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

This is a very good summary on motor neurons disease (MND), and the therapeutic potentital os stem cells.
