Stem Cells Grow Human Intestines Successfully

Posted by [email protected] on Dec 1, 2014 8:03:44 AM

Scientists have engineered human intestinal tissue through the use of stem cells.

Researchers from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Centre have successfully grown functional human intestinal tissues by utilizing stem cells. After stimulating the stem cells with a “molecular cocktail” of chemicals and growth factors, the team observed as the cells developed into the mucosal lining and muscle layers, while exhibiting digestive functions such as nutrient uptake and responding to molecular signals.

Mesenchymal stem cells

Apceth, a leader in the development of stem cell treatments, has won approval for a Phase I/II multicenter clinical trial evaluating an autologous mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy for gastrointestinal cancer. The treatment involves the utilization of the patient’s own stem cells to combat and destroy cancerous cells and is designed to enable highly localized treatments.
