Adult Stem Cell Research Helps Parkinson’s and Heart Failure Patients

Balanced Article on Stem Cell Research
In a surprisingly balanced article on stem cell research from the mainstream media, Adult Stem Cells have helped at least two more patients- one for congestive heart failure and the other for Parkinson’s disease.
In an article by Forbes Magazine, they took a fair look at stem cell treatments abroad. […]

Researchers make human stem cells in pigs

Researchers have developed a new line of genetically modified pigs that do not reject transplants, an advance that allows for future research on stem cell therapies.

One of the biggest challenges for medical researchers studying the effectiveness of stem cell therapies is that transplants or grafts of cells are often rejected by the hosts.

This rejection can render experiments useless, making research into potentially life-saving treatments a long and difficult process.

Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have shown that a new line of genetically modified pigs will host transplanted cells without the risk of rejection.

“The rejection of transplants and grafts
