New Stem Cell Method Better Protects Patients

The Scripps Research Institute has developed a new method of stem cell therapy that relies on the insertion of certain drugs into human tissue cells that will transform them into pluripotent, embryonic stem cells. The resulting stem cells will then be able to develop into any and all types of cells in the body without the help of viruses, which are used in similar stem cell procedures today that can produce tumors and put patients at risk for serious complications.
