    Yes, I think there is no doubt that the FDA was pressured to sit on this under the Bush administration and now it has been let loose under Obama.

    Bush has been anti-stem cell and anti science. His policies have set spinal cord injury back by decades. The man is absolutely despicable.

    aren't these esc the same cells George W. Bush approved and funded?

    CNN) -- Federal regulators have cleared the way for the first human trials of human embryonic stem-cell research, authorizing researchers to test whether the cells are safe to use in spinal injury patients, the company behind the trials announced Friday.

    The tests could begin by summer, said Dr. Thomas Okarma, president and CEO of the Geron Corporation. The Food and Drug Administration has approved the trials, which will use human stem cells authorized for research by then-President George W. Bush in 2001.

    The patients will be those with the most severe spinal cord injuries, called complete spinal cord injuries.

    "A complete spinal cord injury has no hope of recovery below the injury," Okarma told CNN. "This is significant because it's the first clinical trial of a human embryonic-based product."
