Adult Stem Cell Research Progress

The Gainsville Sun reports on progress in the develop of regenerative medicine based on adult stem cells. While the article focuses on recent technical successes in proving that what works for mice will also work for humans, there are also comments on the wider field. As a heartening example: "We are gaining increasing information about the potential of these cells to restore function in brain, heart, liver and other tissues. The more we learn about this, the more horizons are expanding as to clinical applications." Now if we could just stop the FDA from blocking successful trials, things would be looking up.
