Much of the current hope in regenerative medicine is intimately entwined with promises that stern cells will provide the backbone for cell-replacement therapies to treat various degenerative, genetic and malignant conditions. The realization that a wide range of adult tissues contain stem cells has heightened this optimism, and ultimately the expectation that these somatic cells can be harnessed to provide cell-based therapies that will soon be realized in the clinic. This review discusses the… CONTINUE READING
