A new article at BBC outlined a study : Adult cells in ear & bone marrow of pig changed into stem cells May be able to grow pig stem cells to replace human organs
Adult cells in ear & bone marrow of pig changed into stem cells
May be able to grow pig stem cells to replace human organs
“Blank cells” = no job Could replace dead damaged cells Found in adults & embryo Embryonic cells might be “more flexible” but must kill embryo http://www.srsp.net/kassel/images/Pluripotent_Stem_Cells.jpg
