First test of pluripotent stem cell therapy in monkeys is successful

First test of pluripotent stem cell therapy in monkeys is successful | Stem cells | Scoop.it
“For the first time in an animal that is more closely related to humans, researchers have demonstrated that it is possible to make new bone from stem-cell-like induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) made from an individual animal's own skin cells. The study in monkeys also shows that there is some risk that those iPSCs could seed tumors, but that unfortunate outcome appears to be less likely than studies in immune-compromised mice would suggest.”
Mr.T's insight:
Diverse use within related organisms increases confidence of efficacy.
