In the last few months, medical advances fueled by stem cell research have been nothing short of unbelievable.
Scientists have injected stem cells, which were extracted from a pet dog’s fat, back into the animal. The cells then made hip pain repairs.
The journal Circulation Research recently reported that researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have grow functional, pulsing heart cells from skin cells.
Japanese scientists have cured mice whose hind legs were paralyzed by spinal cord damage, and U.S. scientists at Northwestern University have used stem cell therapy to reverse early-stage multiple sclerosis.
