American scientists from the University of California under the guidance of doctor of biological Sciences Robert Lanza before said, they managed to clone stem cells in the adult.
Stem medicine is very promising direction. Success in this area will help doctors to relieve patients from the most difficult diseases to grow whole organs. As an example diabetes of the first type. Stem medicine will grow beta cells of the pancreas that will save patients from chronic administration of insulin.
For the experiment, was developed by the technology transfer engine". DNA donor was injected into the egg without the genetic apparatus. This led to the emergence of isolated cells capable of division. The result is a new stem cell.
This same research group managed to come up with another way of obtaining stem cells. Its essence lies in reprogramming adult cells using an acid without affecting the cell's DNA.
