Two Researchers Successful in Identifying Stem Cells in Human Milk

Kolhapur-based Gynecologist and Infertility Expert Dr. Satish Patki and Senior Scientist Ramesh Bhonde have triumphed in discovering the presence of stem cells in human milk.

The two researchers also filed the likelihood of these stem cells. They detached the cells from human milk to discriminate into several other kinds of cells such as insulin-producing cells of pancreas, adipocytes and bone cells amongst others.

Bhonde was previously working with the National Centre for Cell Sciences, Pune.

The research document has been acknowledged for publication by the international journal 'Human Cell' of the Japan Human Cell Society.

The paper will be printed in the 23rd volume, 2010. The two canvassers have also applied for a copyright for their breakthrough.

The researchers have already discovered the presence of stem cells in uterus and fallopian tube.

On Monday, talking to journalists, Dr. Patki said that the research was performed through tissue culture technique in 2008.

He said that it was always argued by physicians and scientists that breastfeeding is a necessity for infants, but no one explicated the reasons for it.

He said, "We have discovered a new source of stem cells - mother's milk. Other sources are bone marrow and fat tissues. Human milk contains many types of cells including white cells. But now, we have discovered that it also contains stem cells".
