Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells May Be Used to Treat Hepatitis

Research performed by scientists in Grenada and Leon suggests that stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood have the potential to cure various hepatic diseases such as hepatitis. These studies introduce critical treatment methods for such illnesses other than liver transplants, which have become increasingly difficult to perform due to a lack of donors. According to a scientific paper to be published in the journal “Cell Transplantation,” human umbilical cord blood cells are useful for hepatic regenerative medicine, as they are capable of nesting in the liver after carrying out a xenotransplant from human to rat.
