According to a report published in Journal of the American Society of Nephrology reveals that the stem cells from the chronic kidney disease the patient’s own abdomen can be helpful in preserving and also improving the kidney function of the patient. The fatty fold tissue in the abdomen is a very rich source of stem cells. This can help to heal the problematic kidneys in the fused organs. This study was conducted on rats. Further the study indicate that the stem cells possess the control to control chronic kidney disease, but these cells should be allowed to stay in the diseased kidney for a long period of time.
The lead author, Ashok Singh, PhD conducted the research and further explained, “This maneuver allowed us to permanently lodge stem cells in contact with the diseased kidney. The progression of chronic kidney disease was slowed due to the continuous migration of stem cells from the omentum to the diseased kidney, resulting in healing of the kidney.”
