Newly identified stem cells have potential to regenerate blood vessels
from Pulmonary Fibrosis News
A new subtype of stem cells that have the unique ability to perform two distinct functions at the same time was recently discovered by researchers at University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia. These cells can generate both endothelial and mesenchymal cells, meaning they hold the potential to regenerate or repair blood vessel damage across the body (through endothelial cells), and tissues such as bone, cartilage, muscle and fat (through mesenchymal stem cells).
