    Somebody should be trying this with autologous nerve tissue for SCI

    Petition Robert Lanza at http://www.advancedcell.com/company/ to put it into development

    Dr Lanza is a very intelligent man. His team at ACT have developed a line of HESC that could possible used to help damaged SCI, ALZHEIMERS, PARKINSON'S, CANCER. The cell line developed by Dr Lanza are called NED (No Embryo Destruction) are waiting acceptance by the NIH which could come very soon.

    To date, the derivation of all human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines has involved
    destruction of embryos. We previously demonstrated that hESCs can be generated from single blastomeres (Klimanskaya et al., 2006). In that ‘‘proof-of-principle’’ study, multiple cells were removed from each embryo and none of the embryos were allowed to continue development. Here we report the derivation of five hESC lines without embryo destruction, including one without hESC coculture. Single blastomeres were removed from the embryos by using a technique similar to preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). The biopsied embryos.............................
