Gauging stem cells for regenerative medicine

A new benchmark for generating the most primitive type of stem cell has been described by scientists in a new report. While stem cells–cells that have the potential to differentiate into other types of cells–exist in adult humans, the most useful stem cells are those found in embryos, which are pluripotent, capable of becoming nearly any cell in the body….
