Japan has successfully used stem cells to repair large intestine ulcers
The world's first successful stem cell repair of a damaged large intestine has been carried out by a team of researchers led by professor morihiro watanabe of the university of Tokyo. The inner wall cells of the large intestine have a very short life span of only a few days and have not been successfully cultured so far. Professor watanabe's team focused on the stem cells that make up the large intestine. They successfully grew a large number of cells from just one large intestine stem cell. The results were published in the British scientific journal Nature? Medicine. The result could be a new treatment for Crohn's disease (CD).
In addition, the results are expected to open up different regenerative medicine technology and iPS cell technology.
