New way to make stem-like cells

May 30, 2009|Times Staff And Wire Reports

U.S. researchers said Thursday that they had come up with a safer way to make stem-like cells using a patient's ordinary skin cells.

The team at Harvard and Massachusetts-based Advanced Cell Technology Inc. soaked cells in human proteins that turn back the clock biologically, making the cells behave like embryonic stem cells.

The company plans to seek permission to test the cells in people by next year.
