>Patients’ own adult stem cells in the news

>There’s hope in the news for future adult stem cell therapies using patients’ own stem cells within the next ten years.

The (UK) Times Online reports on the rapid progress in research on tissue regeneration using patients’ own adult stem cells to produce heart valves and muscles. The researcher predicts the technology will be available in three to five years for use in humans.

To support this hope, Nature Biotechnology will publish a report on adult stem cells that make muscles in immune deficient mice. The abstract is available here and the UPI report is available here.
