Scientists working at a British laboratory have achieved one of the most controversial breakthroughs ever made in the field of stem cell science by taking cells from dead embryos and turning them into living tissue.
The technique could soon be used to create treatments for patients suffering from diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, the researchers say. The breakthrough has been hailed by many scientists and ethical experts because it could circumvent opposition to stem cell experiments.
This could SO be the next subject of the next Re-Animator movie: Rock-a-bye Re-Animator. (Title free for the taking!) Too bad we have to wait until 2008 for House of Re-Animator.
