    Study: Human fat yields multipurpose stem cells

    Story Highlights

    Human fat from liposuctions can be converted to induced pluripotent stem cells

    These cells have the potential to become any tissue in the body

    Less than half a Coke can's worth of fat needed for process, researcher says


    "The method that uses fat cells can be as much as six weeks faster, Wu said, because the cells retrieved through liposuction are so plentiful, they can start reprogramming right away and have iPS cells in about two weeks."

    Two?



    (i'm so sick of hearing about these "new" sources for stem cells, it seems like EVERYTHING turns into a stem cell, if you stroke it the right way O.o Until we see some REAL work being done, i say PISHAH!)

    I posit that there are at least two very skinny/very smart people already on this site alone. At the risk of arrogance, I cite Sedative and myself in support of that claim.
