Another adult stem cell success

New adult stem cells found in bone marrow are "capable of forming three different cell types and of self-renewal."

"These studies show that stem cells from adult bone marrow are a virtual tool kit for repairing damaged hearts," senior investigator Dr. Douglas W. Losordo told Reuters Health. "Specifically, these cells can differentiate into all of the essential cellular elements required to restore function in 'broken' hearts."
