Still, these results suggest that doctors could one day tailor MS patients' treatments to their molecular profile, and perhaps take some of the u...

Researchers devise way to mass-produce embryonic stem cells

...or experiment, 94 percent of the stem cells tested positive for these proteins, compared to about 85 percent of the cells grown in the flask. The researchers are now working on ways to program embryonic stem cells so that they differentiate into specific types of cells. In preliminary work, Ouyang has create...
