ScienceDaily (July 30, 2012)—In the first human study of its kind, Michigan researchers found that using stem cells to re-grow craniofacial tissues—mainly bone—was faster, more effective, and less invasive than traditional bone regeneration treatments.
The study, which will be reported in the journal Cell Transplantation, was conducted by researchers from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and the Michigan Center for Oral Health Research in partnership with with Ann Arbor-based Aastrom Biosciences Inc. It involved 24 patients who required jawbone reconstruction after tooth removal.
