Gut motility disorders represent a significant challenge in clinical management with current palliative approaches failing to overcome disease and treatment-related morbidity. The recent progress with stem cells to restore missing or defective elements of the gut neuromusculature offers new hope for potential cure. Focusing on enteric neuropathies such as Hirschsprung's disease, the review discusses the progress that has been made in the sourcing of putative stem cells and the studies into… CONTINUE READING
