Harvard Stem Cell Institute researchers at the Harvard Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology and the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have uncovered a novel connection between the bone marrow and brain regeneration following injury from radiation. In their new study, they found that cells from the bone marrow were carried by the blood to the brain after radiation injury, a process that promoted brain repair in animal models. Moreover, this regenerative activity was strengthened by a drug that is currently used in the clinic.
