      So we need to keep an eye out for university of Sheffield in England where this research is currently conducted.
      How do you get the idea to use cells in dental pulp for hearing restoration?
      I am glad I have still al my teeth.:D

      I do not want to belittle this research!
      This is genuine curiosity.

      He is probably a member of the team of Dr Rivolta. We already heard about the successful regeneration but this thing with dental cell is new

      That's such a misleading headline, unless I missed it, there is no mention of it actually working on anyone or event tested yet?

      Yeah...
      "The mexican told that the idea is to improve the protocol of that work to make it more efficient and generate greater number of sensory neurons that can engage in the treatment of other disorders."

      This paper is full of bad English are we sure it's even real? There is no mention of it actually working!

      its legit, what its exciting... is the fact that they just discovered the potencial earlier this year.
      and they are already working on it.

      science is going fast this days.
      awesome

      im not 100% sure if this doctor works in rivoltas team.
      but i can tell you that i talked to professor marcelo rivolta
      a few weeks ago.
      and he told me that steam cells has the potencial to work on hearing hidden loss and vestibular disorders like menieres
      they are starting to research the benefits of steam cells on meniers.

      the future is promising.

      Sounds nice but this might cause cancer because they can't control the rate at which the cells stop. I'm sure cannabis and a healthy diet for a healthy immune can solve this though. I kinda want to be the test dummy.

      I think that's why he's working on this gel that'll ensure the cells are delivered and stays in the inner air.

      Stemcells are very safe :) Many case studies are available which prove their safety; their efficacy, type and delivery method is what is currently up for date though.

      I think I need a stem cell enhanced brain transplant. I just went to make an instant cup of coffee and thought I used one teaspoon of coffee and one teaspoon of sugar in my cup. After pouring in the boiling water, the water was clear. So what I did was, add one teaspoon of sugar first, then closed the lid on the sugar and pushed it back to its place on the counter...... then grabbed the sugar again and added a teaspoon of sugar AGAIN!!

      Yep, please grow me a new brain in a petri dish. I have a tooth you can use for pulp. Thanks!!
