Pioneering stem cell injections boost recovery in 25 stroke patients 'by helping damaged nerve cells regrow within six months'

The trial is among the first times the therapy has been tested on human patients
Their own bone marrow cells were put into their blood within 72 hours of stroke
One scientist said their nerve cells were regrowing in a way not usually seen
More than 100,000 strokes happen annually in the UK and 795,000 in the US

Webmaster's Commentary:
