In Spain the “conditions exist to perform experiments with this technique”. Health Minister Bernat Soria experienced a personal triumph with the approval of the first human testing with embryonic stem cells, even if it did occur in the US. He added that he is working on regulations “so that all of this, which is already legal, is effective in practical terms: both to provide guarantees for the researchers and volunteers and to facilitate procedures.

He also announced that his intentions have materialized in an agreement with the Governor of California, who, although a Republican,

One factor, not four like a majority of biologists throughout the world have said up until now, is sufficient to convert an adult stem cell into a cell that is similar to an embryonic stem cell. A recipe that is much more simple than what the scientific community has believed has been discovered by Hans Schöler and his colleagues, who include Italians ,Vittorio Sebastiano and Luca Gentile, from the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine in Germany. The study, published in February’s edition of Cell, shows for the first time that nerve stem cells taken from

Gov. Rick Perry wants to put stem cells therapy to the test in Texas

In his latest defiance of the federal government, Gov. Rick Perry is trying to make Texas the nation’s top provider of an unlicensed therapy touted by some as the future of medicine but considered not close to ready for mainstream use by scientists in the field.

Perry this summer worked with his Houston doctor and a state legislator with multiple sclerosis to write legislation intended to commercialize the controversial therapy, which involves injecting patients with their own stem cells. Perry quietly got the therapy as part of back surgery in July.

“With the right policies in place, we can lead the
