Researchers report on an exciting new way to reprogram cells so patients might one day grown their own cells to replace diseased ones
embryonic stem cells
It’s been 17 years since Dolly the sheep was cloned from a mammary cell. And now scientists applied the same technique to make the first embryonic-stem-cell lines from human skin cells.
In what researchers view as validation of the field, the Nobel committee on Monday recognized pioneering contributions to stem cell science by John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka
Scientists from the New York Stem Cell Foundation Laboratory reported on Wednesday the first success in using the cloning technique that gave rise to Dolly the sheep to generate stem cells using adult human cells.
Health authorities in the U.K. approved on Thursday Europe’s first clinical trial involving embryonic stem cells.
When it’s most successful, in vitro fertilization, or IVF, yields far more embryos than a couple could ever use (unless that couple is the offspring-obsessed Duggar family). There are frequently frozen embryos left over, and …
For only the second time, the Food and Drug Administration approved a company’s request to test an embryonic stem cell-based therapy on human patients.
