ONDON, April 15 (Reuters) - A stem-cell repair technique that has already been used to fix hundreds of injured race horses is to be tested for the first time in people with damaged Achilles tendons.
Privately owned British biotech firm MedCell Bioscience Ltd said on Wednesday it would start clinical tests within 12 months and planned to run a larger confirmatory study at several European hospitals in 2011.
Patients will receive injections containing millions of their own stem cells, which have been extracted and multiplied up in a laboratory, and can regenerate new tissue to repair damaged regions.

Another Win for Adult stem cell treatment and adult stem cell activation vs. Fetal Stem Cells.
NOT embryonic stem cells. The stem cells come from the afflicted horse. In the human trials the stem cells will come from the afflicted human or his mother.
I know that. Just making a point that they didn’t have to kill any foals (baby horses) to help heal the afflicted horses.
As always their own stem cells are always the best option. It is almost like the left see fetal stem cells as a way to sickly justify their agenda concerning abortion and despite the science not panning out (see: global warming) they just keep blindly trudging on.
What they don't mention in the article is that in developing this therapy they didn't have to kill any foals in trying to figure out how this works.thanks GraceG.
So let me get this straight. Centaurs may have just been a myth, but we’re going to create something like them now?
Hoof herd that could be happening.
