A company called Geron is getting ready to submit an IND (investingastional, (sp) new drug)in the 4th quarter of '07. This will be the first use of embryonic stem cells in humans. Mice and rats are already walking. How will this effect us? Neurons are being formed and remyelination has occured in animal testing.

To much for me to type, But hope for a cure is getting closer.

If I read correctly, it's not that Embryonic stem cells will not help,they will. It seems people are worried how we get there.
