ASC Update

A lot of news:

- It would definitely seem that treatment for heart attacks is the leading use of adult stem cells.

From Science Daily:
"They randomized 101 heart attack survivors to receive a solution including progenitor cells from their own bone marrow. The other 103 patients received a placebo solution."
A much larger population that previous studies.

- Also, a possible new source of stem cells, from Science Daily.

- And a possible treatment for sickle cell disease (tested in humans)
