Muscular Dystrophy: Research identified skeletal muscle stem cell that helps repair damaged muscles

A University of Colorado at Boulder research team has identified a type of skeletal muscle stem cell that contributes to the repair of damaged muscles in mice. It can have crucial implications in the treatment of injured, diseased or aging muscle tissue in humans, and muscular dystrophy.

Harvard Stem cell Scientists on their way to reshape medicine for disease producing cells

Harvard-UniversityOn 27th August,2008 Dr. George Daley and Kevin Eggan, scientists of the Harvard University made a breakthrough announcement regarding the creation of stem cells from patients with a variety of diseases. They say that this disease-specific stem cells will reshape medicine, as stem cells will make the cells to grow in the petri dish of the lab which will increase the chance of study of all degenerative diseases.

Researchers Hopeful About The Use Of Muscle Stem Cell To Treat Muscular Dystrophy

Harvard University researchers have expressed their hope that the muscle stem cell can be used as a solution to the conditions such as muscular dystrophy. Dr Amy Wagers and her team successfully transplanted muscle stem cells from healthy mice into the muscles of mice that show symptoms similar to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Pilot Study Of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy In New Born Is Successful

A team of researchers at the Ohio State University in Columbus, have tested all newborns boys for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and the result is found feasible and effective. Creatine kinase testing of newborn boys, with follow-up DNA analysis in those with positive results, has identified two cases of DMD among nearly 5,000 births. In both cases, the infants’ creatine kinase levels were higher than 2,400 U/L.
