Fiercebiotech recently reported that: Stem cell research is making significant strides so far this year, advancing in often-unexpected directions.
The Wall Street Journal reported one of the more interesting developments just last week: Yale University doctors were able to treat a 4-year-old girl’s heart defect by implanting a biodegradable scaffolding covered with the patient’s bone marrow cells.
Six months after the surgery, the WSJ explains, the stem cells went away, the scaffolding disappeared, leaving behind a bioengineered construct very much akin to a typical “blood vessel.” The stem cells also disappeared, moving on after they appeared to have helped induce the regeneration.
