Early Successes – Adult Stem Cells
- Human neural stem cells can migrate extensively in
the brain after injection.
- Adult stem cells have been isolated from amniotic
fluid, peripheral blood, umbilical cord blood, umbilical
cord, brain tissue, muscle, liver, pancreas, cornea,
salivary gland, skin, tendon, heart, cartilage, thymus,
