UT Health San Antonio is leading a study to explore the use of a patient’s own cells to regrow muscle tissue for aging patients who experience loss of muscle mass and function due to the effects of aging.
A team of dental researchers from UT Health San Antonio were recently honored with the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) Cover of the Year Award for 2017. The award was presented during the 96th General Session of the International Association for Dental Research, held in London.
Children and young adults ages 6 to 20 who need a root canal are being sought for a clinical trial that will test two new dental techniques involving regenerative dentistry. The new procedures may help not only clear up tooth infections, but make it possible for the infected tooth to continue growing and developing to its full potential.

For the first time ever in a clinical setting, researchers in the Department of Endodontics, have proven that stem cells, abundant in the soft tissue surrounding children’s teeth, can be used in an endodontic procedure to regenerate the teeth’s own tissue and cells.
