I will stay on the thread of things that you inject or implant, before getting stuck into some meatier surgical operations. But there are so many targets, I was wondering which one to shoot first.
Then I got the email, with a link to this. Stem cells: is there anything that invokes a feeling of hope for the future and the wonders of modern technology and medicine more than this? This isn’t a drug we found in some mouldy bread by mistake, this is something that is so high-tech that it is literally what was considered science fiction in the recent past. If you scan any links related to stem cells you will see that scientists are growing all sorts of tissues from stem cells. Does this hold promise? You bet. Is the technology amazing? Again: yes. Does it actually work now? For anything? Well, considering people are selling the technology to use in patients, we had better find out.
