I don't think stem cell research has progressed nearly that far yet. As far as I've heard, they're just starting to try a few things with mice. It's a long process to get something completed, tested and approved, and testing on mice is a very early step in the process.

And yes, due to the objections of some (who seem to believe stem cell research promotes abortion), the progress in stem cell research has been very slow. Scientists in this country were banned from using any new strains of human cells if they receive any government grants (most do), and the two existing strains that were deemed acceptable for use both have cellular problems, as I understand it.


So.... did you read the link I posted?

The report doesn't say anything at all about stem cells. . . it says the patient was injected with "hematopoietic human fetal liver cells." (Unless hematopoietic means stem cell? I don't know)

And, from what I gather, it doesn't explain why doing this should help with ulcerative colitis.

Can anyone explain?

100 mg Imuran
