Millions of Stem Cells in Days
A new way has been discovered to produce millions of stem cells in days instead of months, using a new technique called OPTi-OX, a new platform technology that optimises the way of switching on genes in human stem cells. The produced stem cells can create any tissue, including those which are typically hard to access, such as brain cells. Besides brain cells these stem cells can develop neurons, oligodendrocytes, and muscle cells, but in reality any cell type in a very short time.
This research holds a great potential in the treatment of various diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and heart disease.
