Adult Stem Cells Can Be Coaxed Into Muscle Cells – Good News for Muscular Dystrophy Patients

20 July 2015

Scientists have found a new way to coax stem cells into the desired cell type by mimicking the body’s natural approach to programming these cells.

The First Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy Patient Receives Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Treatment in the United States

18 October 2014

For the first time in the US, a 28-year old patient with Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, Ryan Benton, received mesenchymal stem cell treatment based on umbilical cord tissue.

Moderate exercise results in stem cell activation and muscle regeneration

06 April 2014

The scientists have proved once more the positive impact of exercises on the body. In addition to its effects on heart, weight, and overall health, moderate exercising helps to restore muscle mass which usually diminishes as we age.
