The medical research world is alive with excitement as the FDA has just approved new stem cell research on the repair of spinal cord injuries. These tests will start this summer at the Geron Corporation in Menlo Park, California, developers of a stem cell treatment for such injuries. This is the first set of tests to be held on humans for a human-based stem cell therapy.
It shouldn't be long before stem cell tests are available in research on diabetes cures, Parkinson's Disease, and other much needed medical treatments which had been held up by the Bush Administration's ban.
