Is it possible that stem cell created from umbilical cord blood can help muscular dystrophy?

Possibly. Umbilical cord stem cells can turn into muscle cells under test tube conditions, and in animal models of muscular dystrophy (md) have been shown to improve function, increase strength, and reduce the high levels of muscle enzymes seen in md patients. There have also been rare case reports of positive effects in young boys with md. Clinical trials are currently underway in china and india. Read more...
