For the first time scientists in the US have managed to harvest viable stem cells from human gut, opening the door to a valuable resource for stem cell research. They hope the discovery will also help find new ways to treat inflammatory bowel disease or to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, which often damage the intestines.. Researchers from the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, and other colleagues, report their findings in the 4 April online issue of Stem Cells.
