It appears that as if British researcher are chasing the stem cell breakthroughs. At present British stem cell scientists are surely under the limelight of success, every now and then new news of stem cell breakthroughs and developments are showing up their faces to the world emerging from the British laboratories.
WASHINGTON - In a breakthrough study, researchers have developed a new stem cell therapy that may help in treating hearing impairment.
US researchers have found that transplant of brain cells can fight problems of hearing loss. Damage to hair cells in the inner ear due to ageing and overstimulation causes hearing problems in 10% of people worldwide.The cell loss is irreversible, but US scientists believe it may be possible to replace them with stem cells from a region of the brain.
