Researchers Marcus Larsson, Andreas Herbst and Niels-Bjarne Woods have discovered new stem cells in amniotic fluid, which have unique characteristics for applications in regenerative medicine. Using a completely new method, these new stem cells can be collected and processed before being utilised in medical applications.
Cells from amniotic fluid are unexploited resources that have been shown to be favourable for reprogramming to several other target tissues. These primitive cells are collected from a very oxygen-poor environment, which gives the cells good properties. Using the new technology retains the low oxygen level during collection and processing.
New unique stem cells in amniotic fluid that are very suitable for medical applications.
