There goes that theory for stem cells!

Let's really hope that there is some promise to this...

A Source of Stem Cells Without Controversy?

"Dr. Anthony Atala, of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, who led the current research, writes:
It has been known for decades that both the placenta and amniotic fluid contain multiple progenitor cell types from the developing embryo, including fat, bone, and muscle.

We asked the question, ‘Is there a possibility that within this cell population we can capture true stem cells?’ The answer is yes."
