Incontinence Treatment Resulting From Prostate Cancer Surgery: Muscle-derived Stem Cells Prove Effective In Reparing Sphincter Damage To Restore Continence

Two studies presented at the 103rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA), show that patients with incontinence resulting from iatrogenic sphincter damage may benefit from stem cell therapy. Incontinence after a radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer can be a result in damage to the external urinary sphincter and would [...]

A Significant Step In Stem Cell Research

Tucked away on page A8 of yesterday’s Newsday, the Long Island New York daily newspaper, was a brief but interesting article about a potential advance in stem cell research which could ultimately have a very significant impact on prostate cancer survivors. According to the article, researchers in Japan, reported that they were able to inject [...]
