this is about a grant in order to study stem cells as a treatment for chronic pain. so many chronic pain patients around the world left without decent treatment, so hopefully this will bring some new insight and subsequent relief!
“Because neuropathic pain is driven by the immune system, we can use stem cells to control and shut down the pain,” explained Professor Hutchinson, who is based at the University of Adelaide. “However, stem cells can secrete both good (anti-inflammatory) and bad (inflammatory) molecules; therefore, the use of cells that secrete the right molecules is going to be critical.”
“Our efforts will be largely based on utilising CNBP technology, incorporating innovative cell detection, molecular sensing and labelling know-how, operating at the nanoscale level,” Professor Goldys said.
