Women Are Superior In The World Of A Mice, This Is A Good Thing For People With Muscular Dystrophy

Posted Apr 10, 2007 by techman

New studies revealed that in the world of a mice the women is actually superior than the male. All because of the Stem Cells in their muscles, this study can be use to cure muscular dystrophy on humans.

This new foundings about women having superior stem cells in a mice can be a good thing for people with muscular dystrophy, because scientist will be able to choose the best stem cells for a transplant in someones muscles.
What's stem cells? Here is what Wikipedia have said:
Stem cells are primal cells common to all multicellular organisms that retain the ability to renew themselves through cell division and can differentiate into a wide range of specialized cell types. Research in the human stem cell field grew out of findings by Canadian scientists Ernest A. McCulloch and James E. Till in the 1960s.
The three broad categories of mammalian stem cells are: embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts, adult stem cells, which are found in adult tissues, and cord blood stem cells, which are found in the umbilical cord. In a developing embryo, stem cells are able to differentiate into all of the specialized embryonic tissues. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing specialized cells.
If the studies are correct this can help lots of people with muscular dystrophy which is a disease that make the muscle have poor levels of a protein called dystrophin.
From the article:
Researchers in several countries are hoping that by infusing healthy muscle-building stem cells into people with the disease, they will generate new dystrophin.
I think this can improve the live of lots of people that suffer from muscular dystrophy, but they still need to do a lot of research and studies on female mice before trying this on humans.
