Diabetes reversed in Mice using Embryonic Stem Cells
It’s all over the news; the second link is to the abstract for the report. I just wonder when they will start trials in humans. Though, in the long run, embryonic cells will likely not be used to treat diabetes since it is still foreign tissue and you have the same issues as with organ transplants. The key is to determine how to alter adult stem cells to reach a more pliable state similar to embryonic stem cells. Nevertheless, they need to continue to study embryonic cells to figure how to reprogram adult stem cells.
