Washington: Two specific cell populations, harvested from a patient`s healthy bone marrow, are helping pave the way to bladder regeneration, says a new study.Cells from the bone marrow are being used to recreate the organ`s smooth muscle, vasculature, and nerve tissue, the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports.The research, led by Arun K Sharma, research assistant professor in urology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and colleagues, offers an alternative to current tissue-engineering strategies."We are manipulating a person`s own disease-free cells for bladder tissue reformation," said Sharma, member of the Institute for BioNanotechnology in Medicine, according to a Northwestern statement."We have used the spina bifida patient population as a proof of concept model because those patients typically have bladder dysfunction.
