1) Like their embryonic counterparts, these induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) were capable of forming all three germ layers both in vitro and in immuno-deficient mice, demonstrating their remarkable pluripotential character.
On August 25, after nine months of sorting through approximately 50,000 comments, NIH issued final guidelines for federally funded research utilizing human pluripotent stem cells derived from human embryos and fetal tissue.

Researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Regenerative Medicine (MGH-CRM) and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute have a developed a new type of human pluripotent stem cell that can be manipulated more readily than currently available stem cells.
While we would consider settlement as one of the options, because we just want to protect our rights by asking the Nobel Assembly to make a clarification on whether Yamanaka created a real pluripotent stem cell or fake pluripotent stem cell; we have no intention to undermine the reputation of the Nobel Assembly, but the filing of a suit was the only way which we could compel the Nobel Assembly to provide a response.
By adding TeSR-E8 and the new STEMdiff kits to its portfolio, STEMCELL Technologies continues to provide the most complete, defined system of integrated tools for human pluripotent stem cell research.
As an ordinary tissue cell, "PRC" usually does not present the function of proliferation and differentiation, however, once an organ or tissue is damaged (state of losing function), "PRC" directly converts in situ into pluripotent stem cell and regenerate required physiological cells, tissues, and organs in situ, after which "PRC" turn back to the state of somatic cell and is latent in the tissues and organs.
The research, which provides proof-of-principle for the feasibility of combining induced pluripotent stem cell technology and genetic correction to treat muscular dystrophy, could present a major step forward in autologous cell-based therapies for DMD and similar conditions and should pave the way for testing the approach in reprogrammed human pluripotent cells from muscular dystrophy patients.
The National Institutes of Health announced on September 18 that it plans to begin implementing an Executive Order issued by President Bush to begin exploring methods to expand the number of approved pluripotent stem cell lines "without creating a human embryo for research purposes or destroying, discarding, or subjecting harm to a human embryo or fetus.
