Plain cells turned into beating heart cells

God what potential. This stuff just amazes me. That there is the possibilty in the future that they could just regrow an organ for us when we need a new one leaves me in awe.

Bob my wife has some connections at NIH so if your litle bro would be interested in any clinincal trials I can see if we can help to hook him up. NO guarantees but if it gets to the point he wants to give it a shot let me know. Hell maybe I should check to see if they are even offering any"outside the box" trials first.

I was talking to my wife about this study and the scientists she communicates with truly believe this type of therapy could be commonly used within five years. As you know I am the septic skeptic but hey her knowledge of stem cells kicks my puny little butt. Of course the vascular docs are already calling their buddies in the press but hey the truth shall set us free!
