Two independent British research groups have discovered new stem cells in mouse embryos that could help enhance understanding of human embryonic stem cells as well as move scientists closer to harnessing these cells' full healing power.
Liver failure occurs when the liver is no longer able to perform its normal synthetic and metabolic functions. The liver is the organ responsible for filtering the blood to eliminate bacteria or other poisonous materials. It also regulates fat storage and blood clotting while producing vitamins and storing essential minerals. The bile produced by the liver helps humans digest food, and the organ itself helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Scientists have discovered a new type of embryonic stem cell in mice and rats that should speed up research into regenerative medicine and help in the hunt for cures to a range of diseases.
Some U.S. scientists say President Bush's veto last week of federal funding for stem cell research raises questions about the future of the U.S. involvement in the field. Mr. Bush rejected Congressional legislation that would have expanded federal money for research on discarded human embryos. The president says he is opposed on religious grounds to the use of human embryos. VOA's Melinda Smith looks at the future of stem cell research in the United States in light of this veto.
