• Thus
  • According to a 2002 article in PNAS, "Human embryonic stem cells have the potential to differentiate into various cell types, and, thus, may be useful as a source of cells for transplantation or tissue engineering. (wikipedia.org)
  • trauma
  • Mucous retention cysts are most commonly seen in individuals that endure high vocal stress in their daily lives, while epidermoid cysts are usually congenital or second to vocal trauma (see lead section for more information on different types of cysts). (wikipedia.org)
  • Common
  • The neurogenic type is the most common and presents with pain, weakness, and occasionally loss of muscle at the base of the thumb. (wikipedia.org)
  • Order
  • If the pluripotent differentiation potential of embryonic stem cells could be harnessed in vitro, it might be a means of deriving cell or tissue types virtually to order. (wikipedia.org)
  • Location
  • There are two types of vocal fold cysts that differ in terms of location: Sub-epithelial vocal fold cysts which are located in the superficial lamina propria of the vocal folds. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Other risk factors include betel quid, certain types of human papillomavirus, radiation exposure, certain workplace exposures, and Epstein-Barr virus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of the cell types that have or are currently being developed include cardiomyocytes (CM), neurons, hepatocytes, bone marrow cells, islet cells and endothelial cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment
  • Initial treatment for the neurogenic type is with exercises to strengthen the chest muscles and improve posture. (wikipedia.org)
