Repair Stem Cell Institute Warns About Real Cost of Embryonic Stem Cell Research

resident lifted the partial ban on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research stem cell research, he did not mention that Embryonic Stem Cells (ESC) have never worked on humans or animals and never will," Margolis said. "He also didn't mention that Embryonic Stem Cells, when injected into your body, can cause deadly tumors as they have in thousands of lab animals."

Mr. Margolis pointed out that just five days before the ESC announcement, Dr. Bernadine Healy, former director of the National Institutes of Health, published an article in U.S. News & World Report which states, "To date, most of the stem cell triumphs that the public hears about involve the infusion of adult stem cells." Healy concluded that "during the first six weeks of Obama's term, several events reinforced the notion that embryonic stem cells . . . are obsolete."

In support of Dr. Healy's point, Margolis quoted three world-class embryonic research scientists. First was Dr. James Thomson, the godfather of embryonics: "It is more than ironic that the scientist who first isolated and cultured ESC once said 'embryonic stem cells are not being used in any clinical applications yet, while alternatives such as adult stem cells figure in scores of therapies.'" Margolis went on to note that "Dr. Thomson's observation is even truer today. The number of diseases treatable with RSC is rapidly approaching 200, while the ESC count still sits on zero, despite the efforts of a thousand ESC researchers on four continents not hindered by the Bush era regulations."

Margolis then discussed the recent extraordinary discovery of induced Pluripotent stem cells (iPS), which can easily replace the need for ESC. "The potential of iPS is so big," Margolis said, "that even Dr. Ian Wilmut, who led t
