Stem Cells
"The development of stem cell lines, both pluripotent and multipotent, that produce many tissues of the human body is an important scientific breakthrough. It is not too unrealistic to say that this research has the potential to revolutionize the practice of medicine and improve the quality and length of life."

"Michigan Teen Gets Stem Cell Transplant to Heart (Reuters Health) - Michigan doctors are hoping that their first-of-a-kind stem cell treatment will help a teenage boy regain lost heart tissue after he was shot in the heart by a nail gun and subsequently suffered a massive heart attack. The experimental procedure used stem cells harvested from the boy's own blood, which were later infused into the damaged portion of his heart via a catheter. A team of doctors gathered Wednesday and announced the preliminary results of the procedure at a news conference at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak."More...

"The blastocyst is the stage of development at which the embryo's inner cell mass forms. It is the inner cell mass that harbors embryonic stem cells. Stem cells exist only fleetingly at this stage of development." This is the stage from which scientists will, (with government aid one would expect), derive stem cells. These initially harvested cells will be the basis for independent cell cultures.

Stem Cells Are Made From Embryo (AP) Researchers seeking alternate ways to clone tissue for medical purposes have created a monkey embryo without the use of sperm to make stem cells that then turned into heart, brain and other specialized material. - Jan 31 2:02 PM

Stem Cell research information had some great quotes and was previously posted here:
http://neuroscience.about.com/library/blStemResAm.htm
"Understanding the biology of stem cells will unlock many sources of treatments for a variety of diseases as well as provide sources of tissue for transplantation.
So what's the problem? It is not certain if the federal government will fund stem cell research. Various groups object to the original source of the stem cells, human embryos. As a result, they block any effort to research their use for treating disease. ..."
