Doctors in the near future will be able to cure osteoporosis. While the disease belongs to the group of chronic. With the help of drugs can only slightly slow down the disease. Every year osteoporosis causes nearly nine million fractures, says Zee News.
A group of researchers from the University of Ottawa and the University of Toronto proved that a single injection of stem cells restores joints and bone tissue in osteoporosis. As proof of the words the results of the experiment on mice. Scientists have found that one of the main causes of osteoporosis is the lack of mesenchymal stem cells, from which are formed all the organs and tissues. Transplanted in the affected joints of mice, culture stem cells, the researchers received positive results. Locomotor activity of the animals has improved.
These mesenchymal stem cells have many applications: from treating heart disease to restore the body after chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The introduction of culture does not cause rejection and is completely safe, say the experts.
