In a recent study conducted by the University Of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, scientists have discovered a rare line of stem cells involved in regulating spermatogenesis [the production of sperm cells]. Furthermore, these stem cells are resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which are toxic to the male germline and common causes for male infertility.
The ability to identify sperm producing stem cells opens the door for us to expand our understanding of male sterility. Their immunity to the side effects of cancer therapies could be the first step in reversing the damage that these treatments deal onto the spermatogenetic process. Additionally, the identification of stem cells in the testes can lead to new stem cell differentiation techniques for patients in need of regenerative therapy.
The University of Texas’ research is an example of how scientists are gaining insights that will facilitate more effective stem cell treatments leading to better outcomes.
