Win for Stem Cells

A quick update for those keeping score in ASC vs. ESC:

Stem Cells Replace Stroke-damaged Tissue In Rats

This article is particularly interesting, in that it never mentions whether these are adult or embryonic cells! I would imagine these are adult, since embryonic cells are not compatible with the host, and require additional complications to suppress the immune system (like a transplant). I could be wrong, though...
