A study released in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, by researchers at the Baker Institute for Animal Health, part of Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Ithaca, N.Y., details in a relevant ex vivo model how treating wounds with the secretion of a type of stem cell called mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) effectively reduced methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus – better known as MRSA viability and stimulated the surrounding skin cells to build up a defense against the bacterial invader.
