A Step Closer to Developing “Smart” Stem Cells – Cells With Regenerative Abilities – Made From Human Fat

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

These new, adaptive stem cells can lie dormant until needed, a new animal study using human cells shows.

A new type of stem cell – that is, a cell with regenerative abilities – could be closer on the horizon, a new study led by UNSW Sydney shows.

The stem cells (called induced multipotent stem cells, or iMS) can be made from easily accessible human cells – in this case, fat – and reprogrammed to act as stem cells.
