Stimulating blood vessel formation with magnets

Wednesday, July 21, 2021 - 11:00pm

This was used to treat endothelial cells, stimulating blood vessel formation.

Key Points: 
  • This was used to treat endothelial cells, stimulating blood vessel formation.
  • "We developed a promising cell therapy alternative that can non-invasively stimulate blood vessel formation or regeneration through the application of an external low-intensity magnetic field."
  • These cells can change into different cell types, and also secrete a protein called VEGF-A that stimulates blood vessel formation.
  • Finally, VEGF-A extracts produced by magnet-treated mesenchymal stromal cells on gelatin increased blood vessel formation in a chick embryo, although further research is needed to confirm these results.
