What are important, recent stem cell good news stories?

Sometimes there is so much craziness and outright bad stuff going on out there around the world related to stem cells that we can lose sight of all the good news and encouraging developments as well.

I think the new paper (Chen, et al.) from a team led by Drs. Lane and Loring is good news.

I haven’t had time to fully read it yet, but it reports some encouraging results whereby human neural progenitors injected into the spine of mice with an experimental MS-like condition stimulated great clinical improvement.

The cells seemed to reduce inflammation although they did not appear to engraft.

What do you see as the most promising positive developments on stem cells lately?

Let us know in the comments.
