New hope for spinal cord injury victims
...earch has begun to suggest that maybe stem cells - primitive

vascular structures. Some of the cells were injected into laboratory rodents, called SCID mice, whose immune system will not reject foreign tissue. Langer said the cells continued to transform themselves and after 14 days they developed the tiny tube...
More Lizards, Including Pets, Found Venomous
.... However, the bearded dragon’s delivery system is primitive
and it is present in such small amounts it would not harm a human. Until now, only two families of reptiles were known to have venom systems, i.e., the advanced snakes and Helodermatid lizards. However, this study demonstrates there are venom toxin...
