I don't thing the STEM Baggies here have any clue what we are discussing.,...STEM attracts investors with little science knowledge. For them its all about getting out of Baggieville.
STEM.....maybe they already knew about using Lemon Juice but decided to keep it on the down low. Now that Harvard announces this finding the cat is out the bag!!!
In Layman terms:
Milk the investor for all you can.....dazzle them with Junk Science to confuse the masses.
Got it??? Good!
Hey Big Al.....i see you are still here in Baggieville!!!!
hey Big Al......looks like the sky is falling!!!!
Study Says New Method Could Be a Quicker Source of Stem Cells
By ANDREW POLLACKJAN. 29, 2014
A surprising study has found that a simple acid bath might turn cells in the body into stem cells that could one day be used for tissue repair and other medical treatments.
The technique, performed only with cells from mice, might turn out to be a quicker and easier source of multipurpose stem cells than methods now in use.
“If reproducible in humans, this could be a paradigm changer,” said Dr. Robert Lanza, a stem-cell scientist who was not involved in the work. Dr. Lanza, who is chief scientific officer of the biotechnology company Advanced Cell Technology, said the technique might also make it easier to clone animals or even people, raising ethical questions.
The new technique was developed by researchers at the Riken Center for Development Biology in Kobe, Japan, and at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Two papers by the researchers were published in the journal Nature on Wednesday.
Some experts expressed caution, saying more needed to be known about the new approach and that existing techniques for making stem cells had improved markedly in recent years.
“The existing methods are already quite advanced,” said Sheng Ding, a professor at the Gladstone Institute for Cardiovascular Disease, which is affiliated with the University of California, San Francisco. “It’s too early to say this is better, safer or more practical.”
Certain stem cells can be easily grown in the laboratory and can turn into any type of cell in the body, which is called pluripotency. Researchers think these stem cells may one day be used to repair damaged cells and organs in the body, though experiments trying this in people are in very early stages.
At first, interest focused on so-called embryonic stem cells, which could be obtained at first only by destroying human embryos, which is ethically contentious.
No problem here...so what's the positive news coming soon based on??? Or are you just talking out the side of your neck???
really ??? based on what??? are they lowering the price of the Human brain cells you can purchase on the internet from STEM???

Purified Mouse Fetal Brain-derived NS Cell gDNA
Cat. No. CL-MFN01-005
Comprises genomic DNA (gDNA) affinity purified from the lysate of a single cell culture sample of a mouse ex vivo fetal hind brain-derived neural stem (NS) cell line cultured in proprietary SC Proven RHB-A media supplemented with EGF and bFGF. Under culture conditions in this media, mouse fetal brain-derived NS cells grow as a homogenous ( 99%) adherent layer, without loss of their neurogenic capacity1-3.
STEMmFNS is also available in the following forms:
STEMmFNS-R Purified Mouse Fetal brain-derived NS Cell RNA — Cat. No. CL-MFN02-010
STEMmFNS-P Purified Mouse Fetal brain-derived NS Cell Protein — Cat. No. CL-MFN03-020
We also offer a convenient 'Triplet' kit, containing vials of all three STEMmFNS stem cell lysate fractions (gDNA, RNA and Protein):
STEMmFNS-Triplet — Cat. No. CL-MFN04
you better buy them while the last!!!
