Researchers discover brain cancer treatment using genetic material from bone marrow cells
Date:4/1/2013

Ford researchers.

In their rat study, Chopp and his colleagues used MSC bone marrow cells to produce the exosomes containing the miR-146b they injected into the cancerous tumors.

Five days after this treatment, the rats were euthanized and their brains were removed, prepared for study, and examined. Tumor size was measured using computer software.

"We found that one injection of exosomes containing miR-146b five days after tumor implantation led to a significant reduction in tumor volume at 10 days after implant," Chopp says. "Our data suggest that miR-146b elicits an anti-tumor effect in the rat brain, and that MSCs can be used as a "factory" to generate exosomes genetically altered to contain miR-146b to effectively treat tumor.
