Protein From Stem Cells Triggers Nerve Cell Repair in Mouse Model

A protein secreted by stem cells, known as pentraxin 3 (PTX3), promoted the repair of nerve cells damaged as a consequence of Parkinson’s disease in a mouse model, a study reported. These findings support further work into PTX3 as a potential therapy to slow or halt disease progression, its researchers noted. The study, “Pentraxin 3 secreted by human adipose-derived stem cells promotes dopaminergic neuron repair in Parkinson’s disease via the inhibition of apoptosis,” was published in the…
