Stem cell research: major medical breakthrough

 article about Stem cell research: major medical breakthrough


In a major medical breakthrough in South Korea, scientists have created the first human cells that are customised to specific patients.

It could lead to a cure for degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and provide hope for accident victims who are unable to walk.

John Gearhart, a stem cell researcher, says, "If you have a heart attack, (or) stroke, when you grow new cells, they will integrate and repair the person's injury."
