Could Stem Cell Therapy Reverse Age-Related Osteoporosis?



stem cell 2ScienceDaily (2016-03-17)—Experts are hopeful that new research using stem cell therapy in mice may mean we can reverse age-related osteoporosis in humans in the near future. Professor William Stanford, Senior Scientist at The Ottawa Hospital and Professor at the University of Ottawa, and his team built on previous research showing a relationship between age-related osteoporosis and defective or low mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in rodents. In the new study, researchers introduced healthy MSCs to mice who had osteoporosis and discovered six months later that the osteoporotic bone has transformed into healthy bone. Read more
