Mother of Lauryn, who has Thal Major

« on: January 10, 2007, 12:00:07 PM »

Hi to all 

Has anyone heard of this new "breakthrough" in stem cell research,where scientists found stem cells in amniotic fluid?

Does this finding pertain to thals? Are we any closer (on a moral standpoint and also as politics are concerned) to curing thals?

I know there is a lot more to be done, but if this will help us in the future, I'll start getting excited now!!

Stem cell are found abundant in Amniotic fluid and cord blood. These young cells are a great source for transplant. There is a substantial research in this respect. In fact I know a family who will be having a BMT of their son soon, stem cell derived fom cord blood.
