New Technique For Identifying Rare Stem Cells in Bone Marrow

Meta Zarnik

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can differentiate into many tissues like bone, fat, cartilage, and muscle. For this reason, scientists are very interested in using these progenitor cells in order to create replacement tissues for those who have been injured or who have disorders that prevent normal tissue growth. Within bone marrow, true MSCs are very hard to distinguish from cells that have already had their fate determined for a particular cell type due to molecular markers on the cell surface. This ambiguity of cell type is preventing work with bone marrow-derived MSCs from being as successful as they could be. This method of identification will allow scientists to obtain a purer sample of MSCs for research and clinical use than have previously been used. That should lead to more reliable patient outcomes.
