Washington (dbTechno) – Scientists in the U.S. have made history as they have found a brand new, safer way to create embryonic stem cells.
There has been a great debate over the years due to safety concerns in regards to the development of embryonic stem cells, seen by many as the future of medicine.
This debate may now be put to rest though thanks to this new research announced this week.
Researchers led by Sheng Ding of Scripps Research developed a way to create stem cells in a laboratory without the need to genetically alter any adult cells.
What they have found is that by taking the cells and putting them in this protein solution, they can create their own embryonic stem cells which can be used effectively.
This could lead to all new treatments for things such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and others.
The study on this new method to create stem cells was published in the journal Cell Stem Cell.
