Irvine, Calif. The findings point to the promise of using this type of cells forpossible therapies to help humans who have spinal cord injuries. In their study, Brian Cummings, Aileen Anderson and colleaguesinjected adult human neural stem cells into mice with limited mobilitydue to spinal cord injuries. These transplanted stem cellsdifferentiated into new oligodendrocyte cells that restored myelinaround damaged mouse axons.

Adult Stem-Cell Success Stories Hailed: Meanwhile, a Son of Reagan Assails Use of Embryos [Michael]
Read More Here…. It reminds our political and cultural leaders. Large numbers of Embryonic Stem Sells can be relatively easily grown in culture, while adult stem cells are rare in mature tissues and methods for expanding their numbers in cell culture have not yet been worked out. This is an important distinction, as large numbers of cells are needed for stem cell replacement therapies. This represents a significant advantage as immune rejection is a difficult problem that can only be circumvented with immunosuppressive drugs.
Why expensive, unproven stem cell treatments are a new health care trend
AP -- A few months ago, Dr. Thomas Einhorn was treating a patient with a broken ankle that wouldn't heal, even with multiple surgeries. So he sought help from the man's own body.
August Life is full of surprises. Just ask Darlene and Joseph Davis who seem to have had a lifetime of surprises—good and bad, then good again—already. As a healthcare professional, Joe Davis knew quite well the risks that his children might be born with sickle cell anemia, a blood disease affecting one of every African-Americans that is passed on to offspring through genetic traits. But sickle cell anemia is a fact of life and his wife Darlene desperately wanted a baby. When Joe Jr.
