Stem cells ‘created from teeth’

In Cancer, Stem Cell by Paul MartinLeave a Comment

A group of Japanese scientists are saying they have created human stem cells from tissue taken from the discarded wisdom teeth of a 10-year-old girl.

They believe that their work could lead to another alternative to human embryos as a source for therapeutic stem cells. The researchers say that it will be at least five years before practical medical applications result from the findings.
