    Hi CJM.

    May I suggest using the Find feature for stem cells and regeneration? There have been many postings on the subject.

    Here's a brief one comparing adult stem cells (ASC) with embryonic stem cells (ESC) by Dr. Young.

    Another more recent post can be found here.

    cjm, are you referring to peripheral nerves? If so, there are actually little research done in that area. Most of the research have focussed on using stem cells repair the brain and spinal cord, as well as the heart, liver, and other organs. Wise.
