Neurons produced from skin stem cells

QUEBEC CITY, QC, Canada (UPI) -- Canadian scientists have produced neurons from human skin stem cells in a breakthrough that might revolutionize neurodegenerative disease treatments.

The Laval University researchers succeeded in producing neurons in vitro using stem cells extracted from adult human skin. That marks the first time such an advanced state of nerve cell differentiation has been achieved from human skin, according to lead researcher professor Francois Berthod.

The scientists say the breakthrough could eventually lead to revolutionary advances in the treatment of neurodegenerative illnesses such as Parkinson`s disease.

Berthod and his team described the method used to produce the neurons in a recent issue of the Journal of Cellular Physiology.

Well, this means some Canadian company is going to make billions while the US throws money at embryonic stem cells.

And no, I don't hate all stem cells.

I follow this a fair amount and I am amazed at the advances in adult stem cells and how little press it gets while we continue to want to sink money into good old tumor producing embryotic stem cells.

They're in the pocket of big abortion. They are either trying to justify it as finally being somehow productive or use it to help their buddies attack republicans.
