Researchers root out the mechanisms behind mesenchymal stem cells’ healing effects

Could stem cells cure MS?

The Scientist: A look deep in the inner-workings of mesenchymal stem cells points to hepatocyte growth factor as the mechanism that likely contribute to the cells’ healing effects. Case Western Reserve’s Robert Miller, PhD, whose 2009 discovery has laid the groundwork for ongoing human trials using MCSs to treat multiple sclerosis, discusses his work to shed light on the role of HGF.
