Stem cells and nerves interact in tissue regeneration and cancer progression

StemCellsAndNervesInteractInTissueRegenerationAndCancerProgression
Researchers show that different stem cell populations are innervated in distinct ways. Innervation may therefore be crucial for proper tissue regeneration. They also demonstrate that cancer stem cells likewise establish contacts with nerves. Targeting tumor innervation could thus lead to new cancer therapies
