Medical researchers from Keele University and Nottingham University have integrated remote controlled magnetic nanoparticles to incite the differentiation of stem cells into new bone tissue for the treatment of bone diseases, disorders, and injuries. In pre-clinical trials, the nanoparticles were coated with proteins that stimulate the stem cells, and then delivered directly to the damaged tissue via an external magnetic field.
Currently, the replacement of bone tissue requires a painful and invasive graft from the patient, which can be ineffective if the area of damaged tissue is larger than that of the healthy tissue to replace it. Incorporating nanoparticles and stem cells as an injectable therapy of regenerative medicine presents a new, effective, and minimally invasive approach to the restoration of functional bone for patients suffering from a variety of bone injuries and degenerating conditions.
Keele University and Nottingham University’s research is an example of how scientists are gaining insights that will facilitate more effective stem cell treatments leading to better outcomes.
