Researchers Achieve Breakthrough In Growing Human Blood Vessels In Mice

Research is paving the way for stem cell therapy as a way to repair blood-deprived regions of organs that have been damaged by heart attacks and other conditions. Researchers withdrew stem cells from the blood or bone marrow of adults or the umbilical cord blood of newborns. The cells were combined with two different types of progenitor cells in a culture dish of nutrients and growth factors. The cells were then implanted into mice with weakened immune systems.
