Breakthrough: Scientists Isolate Human Muscle Stem Cells, Big leap for Regenerative Medicine


Researchers at UC San Francisco have successfully isolated human muscle stem cells and have shown that the cells when grafted onto an injured site, robustly replicated and repaired damaged muscles! This study could pave way for potential treatments for patients with paralysis, severe muscle injury or genetic diseases such as muscular dystrophy.  The findings were reported in Stem Cell Reports.
