Stem Cell Therapy Could be Used to Regrow Bones

Stem cells have numerous applications in medicine — such as growing organs like hearts, lungs, and recently a 10 year-old’s windpipe. In a study involving mice it was recently discovered that stem cells could have another medical application: bone growth. Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) published a paper in Cell that indicates that stem cells could be used to regrow bone and cartilage. The isolated cells are known as osteochondroreticular (OCR) stem cells. Researchers were able to locate the cells by seeking out a certain protein that the OCR stem cells contained.
