Researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery find that mesenchymal stem cells [the type of stem cells found in teeth] promoted nerve regeneration in animal models [in this case – rodents] with paralyzing leg injuries. According to the researchers, “Mesenchymal stem cells may be a promising add-on therapy to help damaged nerves regenerate.” The study found that the rodents treated with their own stem cells responded best to the treatment. Those treated with donated cells from dissimilar rodent types – a situation most similar to human transplants – rejected their new limbs.
One of the fundamentally useful aspects of mesenchymal stem cells is their unique capacity to regenerate a multitude of different types of tissues – such as neurons, insulin producing pancreatic beta cells, bone, cartilage, and cardiomyocites amongst them. The Johns Hopkins study is just one example of the utility of stem cells in successfully reversing disorders, injury and trauma previously considered to be irreversible.
