What kind of stem cell technology is being used in humans right now and by what places? I mean some stem cell technology is being used currently in humans right?
Nah mate, it's still in testing. Looks good though.
And the punchline is all this hooplah over embryonic stem cells and a team in Austraila (I think, someone will have to back me up on this) has made a process that if it works it will have all the benefits of embryonic stem cells off of skin cells.
Here's a guy with a clinic doing stemcell therapy...What kind of stem cell technology is being used in humans right now and by what places? I mean some stem cell technology is being used currently in humans right?
http://www.medra.com/Medra’s Medical Director William C. Rader, MD. has treated over one thousand patients with Human Fetal Stem Cells, including children and adults suffering from many of mankind’s most devastating diseases; some of which up until recently had been considered to be untreatable.

That's superb, it looks like technology is getting very far. With a bit of funding, Bible style healing should be well within reach. But what about the third world? How will they ever benefit?Here's another guy that has been able to grow a new jaw from his own stemcells...
That would go against the hippocratic oath Evo!! There was a case where the child of some JWs was taken by the government from the parents for a blood transfusion (against JW beliefs). The oath took precedent over the belief. The child is better now and the parents are suing!!!How about people that don't have a religion that prohibits stem cell research can donate and they can receive the benefits. Those that are opposed to it cannot, as it would be against their beliefs to have their life or the life of a loved one saved. That way, the rest of us can can continue with the advances in science.
All the cells in a given organism have exactly the same DNA. There are differentiated tissues because different genes are EXPRESSED in different cells. The fundamental question of developmental biology is: "What causes different genes to be expressed in different cells at different times?".What DNA do stem cells have
Ie do implanted stem cells end up with different DNA than adult stem cells that are already in our body, or do they end up taking on the identical DNA of the cells around them regardless?
There's one fundamental problem with this seductive reasoning:How about people that don't have a religion that prohibits stem cell research can donate and they can receive the benefits. Those that are opposed to it cannot, as it would be against their beliefs to have their life or the life of a loved one saved. That way, the rest of us can can continue with the advances in science.
The only thing your question brings up on Google is this.Ignore my previous question because it was stupid
But I do have a question; couldn't you stimulate both and adult and embryonic cells through younger blood? Like if it stimulates adult stem cells, will it also stimulate embroyonic stem cells inside someone's body? (If you figured out what did the stimulation)

This goes on all the time in the human brain.how much could neural growth factors/neurogenesis regenerate the human brain, theoretically?
