A new US study offers insights into the way stem cells from umbilical cord blood can be used to successfully treat diabetes. Researchers at the University of Florida College of Medicine studied twenty children aged between two and seven with type 1 diabetes, seven of whom were injected with cord blood cells. The researchers concluded that the study suggests that the cells “jump-start” and correct the patient’s own immune system.
Scientists say they've created embryonic stem cells by stimulating unfertilized eggs, a significant step toward producing transplant tissue that's genetically matched to women.
Stowers Institute for Medical Research officials have suspended major expansion plans, saying top scientists are skittish about persistent stem-cell research opposition in Missouri.
Scientists have discovered a new type of rodent embryonic stem cell that is more akin to its human counterparts than current mouse stem cells.
Pro-life-related stories interested me this month. On the national level and first up is a big cheers to President Bush for his second veto on legislation that would have forced taxpayers to finance research on stem cells taken from destroyed human embryos. The veto is warranted: Bush understands that it his job as president to ensure that stem-cell research is ethically responsible - promoting research on adult stem cells while denying public funds for embryonic study, for example. "This careful approach is producing results," Bush said. "It has contributed to proven therapeutic treatments in thousands of patients with many different diseases."
