In with a BAM – Stem Cells Advance Bladder Regeneration

Posted by hunter@stemsave.com on Jan 6, 2015 4:56:01 AM

The bladder acellular matrix is a housing of connective tissue that provides structural support for the functional cells of the bladder

New research from McGill University has shown that the bladder acellular matrix [BAM], or the external structure of connective tissue and growth factors that house the cellular components of the bladder, can serve as a scaffolding unit for mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] to regenerate healthy bladder tissue. The stem cells receive growth factors from the BAM, which direct them to differentiate into new bladder cells that, when transplanted into an animal model, exhibit nearly 100% normal bladder capacity and function.

Researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine reported their findings in an animal study in which rats were able to re-grow their bladders in as little as 8 weeks. The focus of the study was to better understand the regenerative process at work in the re-growth of the bladder.
