    The article focuses on stem cell trials. It is indicated that individuals with injuries like torn cartilage and broken bones could be treated through the use of stem cells. Furthermore, stem cells in the early stage can be turned into other cells and can help the regrowth of bones. The treatment...

    Most of the current methods to capture stem cells are very complicated. Our new discovery of acquiring adult stem cells by implanting three dimension (3-D) porous material into the spatium intermusculare of mice hind limbs would bring hope to achieve autologous stem cells transplantation. We...
