I wonder what happened to this. It's been over two years.It's so sad that it looks the company who started this has not renewed their efforts to try study this. I hope someone else retakes the initiative to study more for the future of medicine.

Embryotic Stem-cell research, in my opinion, is vital to the evolution of modern medical science, furthermore to not advance this obviously life saving technology is first and foremost plain and simple idiocy and even religiously and morally wrong
1. It is wrong to kill? you are killing by not providing the means to save a life.
2. Cancer could potentially be swept aside and a perfect duplicate of your own organ could be implanted, completely decimating the chances of organ rejection.
