ASC, ESC, and Blood

You really have to wonder what is the point of ESC...
"The technique works equally well with stem cells grown from an embryo and with adult pluripotent stem cells"
"Compatibility problems should disappear if the blood-forming stem cells are based on the patient's own cells"
Of course, embryonic cells are never compatible with any patient's cells (since the original "patient" was the embryo who was killed). Adult stem cells are always compatible.
