Osteoarthritis in rats responds to stem cell mobilization therapy
Reported in Medical News Today, researchers in Taiwan have found that peripheral blood stem cells “mobilized” by a special preparation of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor prior to their injection into rats modeling osteoarthritis, stimulated the bone marrow to produce stem cells, leading to the inhibition of OA progression. The finding, they said, may lead to a more effective therapy for OA, a common joint disease that affects 10 percent of Americans over the age of 60.
