More stem cell news

The researchers at Imperial College London are perfecting a technique to rebuild a heart severely damaged and scarred by disease or cardiac arrest.

They have discovered a way to extract, grow in the laboratory and then graft on a patient\’s own muscle-building cells which then can be used to patch up the heart and increase its pumping power.

What amuses me (in a rather ghoulish fashion I admit) is that after all the screams and shouts about embryonic stem cells it appears that all of the treatments we might actually want to use are coming from the use of adult stem cells.
