According to a new study by Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, scientist are of the view that blood stem cells are self-regenerating, and a critical gene has been identified for the process as well.
This new discovery could open newer arenas for the scientists. It could mean better techniques for the cell renewal system in the human body. It could mean new doors opening for tissue repair, transplants as well as many other applications in the therapy.
According to Professor Doug Hilton, Dr Samir Taoudi and colleagues from the institute's Molecular Medicine and Cancer and Haematology, the leaders of the study, the research was made for the purpose of better understanding on the structure of blood stem cells.
"One of the key features of blood stem cells, one that could be exploited for therapeutic use, is their ability to regenerate or renew themselves," Dr Taoudi said. "However, relatively little is known about how this occurs or the molecular pathways that specifically control regeneration“.
Blood cells are of extreme vitality to the human body, they are required for the peaceful flow of blood throughout the system. This discovery could be of great help and shall be of benefit to everyone.
