Yet a new possible treatment may help to revitalize an injured ticker.

  • Hair growth stimulated using stem cells
    Lei and team used skin organoids derived from both newborn and adult skin cells. Specifically, they used progenitor cells, which are a type of cell that is more differentiated than stem cells. They dissociated these from newborn and adult skin and then transplanted them into nude mice.
