"The Stem Cell Debate is Dead."


It seems that Dr. Oz is proved right more with every passing day and each new story that breaks in the news. In case you are wondering, my title is a direct quote from Dr. Oz who is a regular guest on the Oprah Winfrey show. You can read my original post about that episode and watch the video clip of that episode here.

PR Web Press Release Newswire just released a story this morning that there is another advance in the stem cell research industry. What is most interesting is that this advance has nothing to do with embryonic stem cells. It seems that there is less news about ESCR everyday and more about other forms of stem cells that do not at all involve embryos. The featured company in this article is STEMCELL Technologies. They are announcing the release of their new “animal component-free (ACF) and serum-free medium for culturing human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs)” or more commonly known as bone marrow stem cells. You can read the full story here. To summarize the article, it explains that this new medium will allow culturing of MSCs in a much safer fashion enabling researchers to grow these stem cells with a much greater probability of success in developing treatments.
