Stem cells from skin cells in mice

Just came across this on the yahoo! website. very encouraging even though there are a few big "ifs" still.

By MALCOLM RITTER, AP Science Writer

NEW YORK - In a leap forward for stem cell research, three independent teams of scientists reported Wednesday that they have produced the equivalent of embryonic stem cells in mice without the controversial destruction of embryos.

They got ordinary skin cells to behave like stem cells. If the same could ...

California

They now have the go ahead from the courts, after two years of being held up, to proceed in distributing money for research with stem cells. The Supreme Court chose not to hear the case making it void. This is a huge step and I can only hope other states now follow.

Stem cell treatment for eyes

It's good to see that proper trials are already underway - this one for eye conditions. Interesting that the transplant might attract stem cells from the bone marrow.
