Promising Research Results in Mouse Model of Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Cleveland Clinic researchers have found that intraperitoneally injected mesenchymal stem cells home to pelvic organs in an animal model of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) after simulated childbirth delivery, confirming that tissue injury plays a role in the homing of these cells. The results could be relevant for future stem cell-based therapies for delivery-related disorders such as POP.
