Scientific sensation from Novosibirsk: Local scientists have developed a drug that causes the brain to produce human stem cells, restoring sick bodies.
All known that nerve cells do not regenerate. However, scientists from Novosibirsk, apparently decided to deny this fact. They have invented a drug that causes the brain to produce human stem cells, "animating" the diseased tissue and even organs.
Andrey Artamonov, chairman and co-owner of the company that developed the drug: "The drug belongs to a regenerative and has no analogues in the world. This year we are initiating clinical trials. "
"Smart" stem cells themselves are damaged body and restore it.
"In children, the brain actively produces stem cells, because the child is growing. And the adult brain is able to produce them, but he does not want to do that, he does not need. Our drug stimulates the production of one's own stem cells. "
According to scientists, all transactions with the stem cells are now being outside the body, which is very risky because the cell that appeared artificially, may begin to interact in an unexpected place.
Clinical trials of the drug will last one and a half years, reports "Interfax".
NTV.Ru reminds one more scientific discoveries related to stem cells was done in the United States. There, a team of scientists at Harvard University, has invented a device that can help cancer patients.
