More rats more walking

A team led by Toronto neuroscientist Dr. Michael Fehlings extracted stem cells from adult mice, which were transplanted into rats whose spines had been crushed. The stem cells developed into ...

Poor little rat

Adult stem cell research advances 16 March 2006

A laboratory rat unable to use its right front paw because of a spinal cord injury struggles to walk across a rope, loses its footing and falls.
Then a rat that had the same injury scurries across the rope without a problem, just weeks after an injection containing adult stem cells from a human nose that were transformed into nerve cells.

The rats are part of a ...

Stem Cell Chat Session

Hi All
I am putting together a "chat" session in the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre Chat Room for those who have had SCT and those going to have it so that people attempting to have it can chat to those who have already been through "the mill" so to speak. So that the new people can avoid any pitfalls those experienced may have encountered.

I am trying to contact as many (SCTers) as possible to ...
