Science Daily is reporting yet another adult stem cell advance.
This one involves adult stem cells taken from blood vessels and researchers believe it will be effective in repairing heart tissue, bone, cartilage and muscles.
“To make this available as a therapy, we would take a muscle biopsy from a patient with a muscle injury or disease, remove the myoendothelial cells and treat the cells in the lab. The stem cells would then be re-injected into the patient to repair the muscle damage. Because this is an autologous transplant, meaning from the patient to himself, there is not the risk of rejection you would have if you took the stem cells from another source.”
There is simply no need to destroy human life through embryonic stem cell research when adult stem cell research is already helping people.
