Scientists at Wake Forest University School of Medicine claim to have discovered a new source of stem cells. The cells are derived from Amnotic fluid.
Therefore bypassing nasty ethical barriers present in research on embryonic stem cells. So far the team of researchers state that their research
suggests that amnotic stem cells have many(if not all)the potential medical attributes of embryonic stem cells but also attributes only seen before in
adult stem cells.
