Dr Amy Wagers and her team in USA have successfully transplanted muscle stem cells from healthy mice into the mice that shows symptom similar to Duchhene muscular dystrophy.
This has shown a promising new way for the treatment of Duchhene Muscular Dystrophy in humans.
But in human beings there are many hurdles. They have a major chance of rejection of the transplanted cells by the immune system and they require an evenly distribution of the cells throughout the muscles of the body.
The researchers believe that the stem cell therapy is still in its infancy stage, and next step towards the development will be to, enable this treatment for the people suffering from muscle disease.
