Scientists in Poland have discovered that velvet antler stem cells have properties that can be used
Researchers at the university of wroclaw in Poland revealed on December 8, 2011, that because velvet is one of the fastest growing organs in mammals, they were driven by curiosity to find the secret of velvet stem cells. After six years of careful research, they finally succeeded in discovering the characteristics of pilose antler stem cells and named it the MIC-1 stem cell.
They confirmed that MIC-1 stem cells contain seven growth elements, which can stimulate other cells to divide and produce proteins under the action of growth elements. Its effect is to regenerate damaged cells and repair four types of damaged tissues in the body, such as connective tissue, muscle, nerve and epithelial tissue.
The most promising result, they say, is the regeneration of bone and cartilage tissue, which can quickly bond to broken bones and regenerate tendons, helping to heal wounds. Similarly, MIC-1 stem cells can also be used in cosmetic science, which can promote hair growth, reduce allergies and eliminate wrinkles.
Stem cell research is said to have great potential for the development of modern regenerative medicine and is being studied in many countries around the world.
Instead of shelving their scientific discovery, polish researchers have now set up a company in a science park that specializes in industrial transformation.
