Healthy blood vessels play a key role in the prevention and treatment of diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Transplanting cells that replenish blood vessels can also restore nerve function in an animal model of diabetic neuropathy, Emory researchers have found.
Scientists have reported new findings that suggest a possible way to treat patients with a combination of drugs that boost the bodyâ€™s own self-repairing mechanism.
Scientists have tricked bone marrow into releasing extra adult stem cells into the bloodstream, a technique that they hope could one day be used to repair heart damage or mend a broken bone, in a new study published today in the journal Cell Stem Cell.When a person has a disease or an injury, the bone marrow mobilises different types of stem cells to help repair and regenerate tissue. The new research, by researchers from Imperial College London, shows that it may be possible to boost the...

Scientists at Harvard University have successfully used human cells to grow new blood vessels in mice.
In a new study that apparently contradicts a recent trial, injecting patients with their own progenitor bone marrow cells a few days after a heart attack failed to improve the organ's function or reduce damage, researchers said on Wednesday.
Heart attack survivors whose hearts were infused with stem cells from their own bone marrow showed nearly twice the improvement in the organ's pumping ability as patients given a placebo, according to a new study presented on Sunday.
