    EMBRYONIC stem cells will be tested on humans for the first time to prove they can safely and effectively repair damaged spinal cords.

    Former Melbourne scientist and world-renowned biologist Prof Alan Trounson will announce the world-first tests at the AusBiotech 2008 conference in Melbourne today.

    Scientists are also preparing to do clinical trials using human embryonic stem cells to treat ailments including blindness and diabetes.

    "We are on the front edge of a medical revolution," said Prof Trounson, who now heads the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine in San Francisco.

    Great news. Basic science and lab work is basic, but its time to start trials, trials, and more trials.
    Any info about if they go to use only cells or something more in combination?

    Just cells. The oligodendroglial precursors.
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    Then i assume this is for acutes only. The impact of cells alone in chronic injury would be very limited.
