Scientists Discover New Target to Help Rejuvenate Aged Stem Cells

Scientists discovered that blocking a tiny RNA molecule can help rejuvenate aged mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) — which have the ability to give rise to specialized cells — derived from people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Those rejuvenated stem cells were found to have improved therapeutic efficacy when used to treat the disease in a mouse model of induced pulmonary fibrosis (PF). “Our study provides a novel candidate target to enhance the therapeutic efficacy of…
