Tissue regeneration by a new drug

Tissue regeneration by a new drug

Researchers of Case Western Reserve and UT Southwestern Medical Center have recently announced a new drug that repairs damage in colon, liver and bone marrow in animal models. The drug, SWO33291 has been found to inactivate 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase (15-PGDH); thereby, increasing prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) that supports proliferation of many types of tissue stem cells. The drug that heals damage in multiple tissues suggests that it might have applications in treating many diseases.
