Adult Stem Cell Breakthroughs

The Anchoress has an update on some of the breakthroughs happening on the Adult Stem Cell front:

Great - and, for anyone following the stunning medical advances being made thanks to ADULT Stem Cell Research - unsurprising news on the Parkinson’s front. Just as numerous spinal cord injuries are being successfully treated with ASC taken from nasal cavities, it looks there sufferers of Parkinson’s Disease may be helped, too.
I hope so. Parkinson's is awful (my uncle died of that disease).

And, maybe you love him, maybe you hate him, but I think someday we will really miss GWB. Though he gets zero credit (for anything), I'm so thankful that he stood strong against the mad drive toward Embryonic Stem Cell research.
After all the high drama and righteous noise about bad-old Bush refusing to let the government fund embryonic stem cell research, it seems a big Emily Letilla “nevermind” is in our futures, perhaps. Along with some very hopeful advances, (some great signs with ASC and cardiac muscles, now) successful treatments (possibly eradicating Sickle Cell Anemia and stroke?) and - we pray - more happy endings.
