    Scientists discover stem cells can repair spine tissue

    STEM cells can be used to repair damage spinal tissue in rats and help them move again, researchers said yesterday.

    The latest research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, could offer new hope to paralysed patients.

    The team said the technique appeared to work best in the two weeks after the spinal cord was injured.

    Responding to both growing competition and government-imposed limits on embryonic stem-cell research, the University of Washington is preparing to launch a stem-cell institute and looking to raise $100 million in private money to fund it.

    The UW's plans reflect the intense competition it faces from other universities around the country that are boosting research into stem cells, which have potential to treat a variety of diseases. California alone has earmarked $3 billion for research in embryonic stem cells.
