Only what I see in this article: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireSto...-cure-36704965

I'd have no desire to use anything involving embryonic stem cells, and not just because of my own beliefs on the issue. Such stem cell use is notorious for causing other problems. I've always thought that if all this time and money had been put into adult and cord blood stem cell research..we'd be in much better shape.

I believe my daughter was part of this or another study. She found it very difficult and painful. She probably wouldn't go through it again. It was a study from somewhere in the US although she did it through the University Hospital in Edmonton AB.
