ADULT STEM CELLS - Another "Huge Step", Another Success

Here's the video on how it was done and The Lancet article published today.
Surgeons can now start to see and understand the potential for adult stem cells and tissue engineering to radically improve their ability to treat patients with serious diseases."

[Professor Martin Birchall, professor of surgery at the University of Bristol] said that in 20 years time, virtually any transplant organ could be made in this way.

US scientists have already successfully implanted bladder patches grown in the laboratory from patients' own cells into people with bladder disease.

The European research team, which also includes experts from the University of Padua and the Polytechnic of Milan in Italy, is applying for funding to do windpipe and voice box transplants in cancer patients. Between 50,000 and 60,000 people are diagnosed with cancer of the larynx each year in Europe, and scientists say about half them may be suitable candidates for tissue engineering transplants.
Yet another in a long line of adult stem cell successes already happening for human beings.

And still zero for embryonic stem cells, which would still suffer from the problem that adult stem cells don't: ESCs would not "eliminat[e] the need for anti-rejection drugs."
