Buffalo Stem Cell Research to Reduce Stem Cell Therapy Costs? A new stem cell that can continually grow and multiply without aging can help reduce the cost of stem cell therapy, scientists from the University of Buffalo say.
“MSC Universal” stem cells can be grown continuously in laboratories and can be used to treat heart diseases, diabetes, immune disorders and neurodegenerative conditions, scientists behind the discovery say.
MSC Universal is discovered by altering the genetics of mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow. The scientists say messenchymal stem cells live in a short span of time but its lifespan is extended when its genetics is altered.
