Methylcellulose Based Media

What used to be just a simple chemical compound used to treat constipation and to thicken food and cosmetic products is now hailed for another purpose.  Scientists and doctors are working together in developing methylcellulose based media, a kind of solution or sometimes it is in gel form used to easily determine and identify the different types of functional progenitors in hematopoietic tissues.  These are the tissues coming form our cord blood, bone and fetal liver.  Apparently, those cells and tissues, although studies are still being made, can help reverse the damages caused by certain diseases (heart attack, diabetes and some cancers).
