Gene Regulates Periosteum Stem Cells In Fracture Healing

A gene involved in the fracture healing process has been identified by a team of scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, University of California, Merced and Davis, Indiana University and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. The finding could lead to the development of new therapeutic treatments for difficult-to-heal injuries. Fracture healing involves communication between bone, muscle, vasculature and […]

Children’s Concussion Rates May Be Higher Than Thought

A significant gap has been discovered in U.S. tracking methods for childhood concussions, and researchers say current estimates of the nation’s pediatric concussions could be greatly lower than they should be. The research, from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found that many current counts of […]

Olfactory Ensheathing Cell Transplantation After Spinal Cord Injury

Olfactory ensheathing cells, also referred to as olfactory ensheathing glia, are a type of radial glia found in the nervous system. They are also known as olfactory Schwann cells because they ensheath the non-myelinated axons of olfactory neurons in a similar way to which Schwann cells ensheath non-myelinated peripheral neurons. They also share the property […]
