--What exactly do you think is misleading? Be more specific.---
The above title has the word "ADULT" when in fact the cells were not taken from an adult nor are they adult stem cells. Seems the poster wants to imply something that is not true.
the term "adult" indicates the cells were not taken from embryos. the term "adult" is also used to indicate cells from umbilical cord blood, placenta and amniotic fluid. From under what rock did you just craw out? I did not say these were stem cells. Many freepers have requested from me that I use the term Adult in titles when referring to non-embryoic cells. I have yet to see you post any threads of value on the free republic, just comments that have no substance. You are being very silly and pathetic and have not contributed to this cause.

The term "adult stem cells" does not mean the cells have to come from an adult.
The term is used to refer to sources of stem cells that do not come from embryos.
Lately however, I've noticed that umbilical cord cells are being referred to as "cord cells" - but I've also seen them be referred to as adult stem cells as well.
The cells in this experiment did not come from an embryonic source.
