Betterhumans reports on more progress in discovering and manipulating human stem cells: "Adult muscle holds stem cells that could be used to treat nerve and muscle diseases. . Until a few years ago, muscle cells were thought to be capable of generating muscle fibers only. . But more recent studies have pointed to the power of these cells to differentiate into mesenchymal cells.
Betterhumans reports on more progress in discovering and manipulating human stem cells: "Adult muscle holds stem cells that could be used to treat nerve and muscle diseases. ...

But more recent studies have pointed to the power of these cells to differentiate into mesenchymal cells." Many parts of the human body are turning out to hold stem cells that can be differentiated into several other types of cell and used to build regenerative therapies.
