Wonder if this can be used to treat lung cancer?
Last i saw, they were thinking of using adult stem cells to create 'custom antibodies' that would attack the cancer.
This technique would probably be more to repair the damage that the cancer had already done.
Funny how they do so many things with adult stem cells, and it gets credited as embryonic stem cells, when all embryonic stem cells have done is give cancer to people.

Simple solution to the problem ~ if you are a "reporter" and you never note that an adult stem cell was used in the process, then if you ever need stem cell treatments, you get restricted to ESCs ~ no ASCs for you!
Kind of the "soup nazi" treatment.
