What’s Next for Stem Cells

With Bush out of office, stem cell research seems to have made its way back into the spotlight, once more promising medical miracles. In 2001, President George W. Bush put a serious slow down in the research of these wonder cells that have the ability to turn into any kind of cell in human body. Potential cures for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, MS, Parkinson’s, and more, all seemed to be further out of sight. Fortunately, scientists in other countries jumped in and American researchers found new ways forward. Last month, the FDA approved the first trials of embryonic stem cell therapy for human patients — paralyzed patients with spinal cord injuries.
