Researchers from the University of North Carolina succeeded in isolating adult stem cells from human intestinal tissue, according to a report in the journal Stem Cells. The investigators separated two types of intestinal stem cells: active and reserve. The development, considered a first, may pave the way for new treatments for inflammatory bowel disease and the adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
