Muscle Degeneration Halted by Stem Cell Activation

Posted by on Sep 26, 2014 10:46:53 AM

A protein involved in muscle regeneration may be integral in activating stem cell-mediated muscle repair.

Researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical research institute have developed a potential method of regenerating autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells to repair damaged muscle tissue in patients suffering from muscle-degenerative diseases. The scientists found that the inhibition of protein STAT3 results in the replenishment of the body’s muscle stem cells, which in turn repair the muscles that are damaged by age, cancer, and diseases such as muscular dystrophy.

Currently, there is no cure for any form of muscle-wasting diseases. The manipulation of proteins in the body to improve the function of autologous muscle stem cells marks a significant breakthrough in developing effective stem cell therapies for patients suffering from muscle degeneration.

The research is an example of the potential for stem cell regenerative medical therapies to effectively treat seemingly intractable and incurable conditions.
