ESC and Nerve Damage

It was bound to happen eventually, from Science Daily:
"therapy utilizes human embryonic stem cells"
"A week after test rats with 100 percent walking ability suffered neck spinal cord injuries, some received the stem cell treatment. The walking ability of those that didn't degraded to 38 percent. Treated rats' ability, however, was restored to 97 percent."
This treatment has already been authorized to start human trials.
