UCD Med Center First Lab to Find Bladder Stem Cells
Posted Sunday, March 30th 2014 @ 1pm  by KFBK News

The UC Davis Medical Center has the first lab in the country to find stem cells in an adult bladder.

Dr. Eric Kurzrock from the UC Davis Institute for Regenerative Cures says, 'Stem cells from humans have been turned into almost any other tissue in the body.'

Kurzrock says nobody has ever done it with a bladder - and this research, now published in the Stem Cells Translational Medicine scientific journal - could be monumental for science.  

He notes that tests are still a long way away from being performed on humans. But, the research is a step in the right direction.
