New research shows how embryonic stem cells–taken from your own body–can renew themselves indefinitely and to turn into all types of mature cells.
When scientists learn how to do this, they will be able to create cells in the laboratory which could be implanted into humans to cure diseases characterized by cell death, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes (NOTE: now reduced to $2.99 from $4.99) and other degenerative diseases.
Science Daily quotes researcher Eran Meshorer as saying, "If we can apply this new understanding about the mechanisms that give embryonic stem cells their plasticity, then we can increase or decrease the cells’ differentiation potential," meaning that eventually we will be able to regrow almost any new body part that we need, until we become "machine men."
