A new type of stem cellthat is, a cell with regenerative abilitiescould be closer on the horizon, a new study led by UNSW Sydney shows.
The stem cells (called induced multipotent stem cells, or iMS) can be made from easily accessible human cellsin this case, fatand reprogrammed to act as stem cells.
The results of the animal study, which created human stem cells and tested their effectiveness in mice, were published online in Science Advances todayand while the results are encouraging, more research…
