I have reported here about how one paralyzed woman in South Korea gained some feeling and mobility using umbilical cord blood stem cells. One patient, of course, does not an efficacious treatment make. But this study adds substantially to the belief that UC stem cells are going to do marvelous things. Rats with spinal cord injury enjoyed moderate improvement using umbilical cord blood stem cells. But pro embryonic stem cell Senators are preventing the feds from creating an umbilical cord blood stem cell bank, which everyone supports on an ethical basis, thereby delaying the day when these treatments could reach suffering patients. Shame on them.
