    Abstract

    There is currently no effective treatment for the devastating muscle-wasting disease Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Cossu and colleagues report in a recent Nature paper that transplantation of mesoangioblast stem cells may hold promise for treating DMD. Further studies are required to fully evaluate the clinical potential of these blood-vessel-associated stem cells.
