Innovative Study Finds Power of Adult Stem Cell Renewal in Mice

Recently, the American Society for Cell Biology presented findings from a study that confirms the power of a single stem cell to self-renew and restore muscle functionality in mice. Researchers utilized stem cells to treat hind limb muscle tissue damage, and as a result, mice experienced increased muscle cell growth and tissue repair. Importantly, these adult stem cells eventually achieved homeostasis and stopped replicating at a certain level—an attribute of stem cells not present in harmful tumors.
