Method for facilitating the production of differentiated cell types and tissues from embryonic and adult pluripotent and multipotent cells
Document Type and Number:
United States Patent Application 20130058900
The invention is concerned with producing differentiated cells, tissues and organs from pluripotent and mutlipotent cells. The methods of the invention are particularly useful for producing differentiated cells from pluripotent cells wherein communication between the cells of more than one embryonic germ layer or more than one organ system are required for development along a specific cell lineage. The invention methods are effected by in vivo or in vitro culturing of embryonic and developing or developed allogeneic or xenogeneic cells.

"Method for facilitating the production ".....sounds like ACT will try to corner the market on mass production of all the various stem cell types Dr. Lanza has helped develop, thus making ACT THE crucial resource for all others needing stem cell supplies for both research and treatment.
To prospective shareholders I say "ALL ABOARD!!!"
