I posted a thread a few weeks ago about an interesting article about a new stem cell treatment for UC that would be harvested from adult embryos that sounded pretty promising:

There is a new one that is in a trial already. MLN 0002 it is a spin off of Tysabri except it is suppose to just target the gut not the brain.
