Keep your baby teeth in place as researchers find stem cells in them that can be used to treat cancer and prevent heart attacks.
- Researchers found that stem cells in young teeth are rich in biological information
- It could save a life
- The removal of stem cells from infant teeth could replace difficult access to bone marrow from other parts of the body.
- Although the new method is still under development, it could be widely used in the next few years to combat cancer and regrow neural cells in the brain
Keeping teeth that fall out of childhood could be a life-saving step, according to the United States National Center for Biotechnology.
Researchers have found the strain Cells in a younger tooth are generally less harmful to the environment than adult teeth and can help to regenerate new cell growth in other parts of the body.
It could replace the difficult access to bone marrow from other parts of the body's stem cells.
Researchers found that stem cells in young teeth are rich in biological information. The United States National Center for Biotechnology announced that it could save a life.
While still under development, the new method could be used in the coming years to combat cancer and rebuild brain neurons to prevent possible heart attacks
Other applications for human decay stem cell (hDPSC ) could cause bone growth, liver regeneration, diabetes treatment and ocular tissue.
Cells could be derived from deciduous teeth from 10 years old.
In a clinical trial in China, childhood teeth were used to regenerate the new teeth that had grown in 30 patients but were not fully developed.
Last year, after some development, they announced that they could renew the blood vessels and nerve connections in the pulp of adulthood.
Currently, apexification is used to promote root growth when permanent teeth are damaged, but it does not replace the tissue and the patient still can not stand a dead tooth.
The use of deciduous teeth could replace the difficult access to bone marrow for stem cells  "This treatment gives the patient sensation in their teeth again," said Songtao Shi of the University of Pennsylvania. & # 39; If you give them a warm or cold charm, they can feel it; they have living teeth again.
Penn Today reported in September 2018, Shi said, "So far, we have follow-up data for two, two and a half, even three years and have shown that it is a safe and effective therapy. "
Shi and his team said that following research sponsored by the National Research and Development Program of China, the Natural Science Foundation China, and a Penn Dental Medicine pilot scholarship, they planned to investigate how Stem cells used by a child's teeth in another person's body would turn out to be.
