Paralyzed dogs in a U.K. study have been restored to mobility thanks to injected cells, letting Cambridge University scientists dare to hope that the technique could eventually aid the treatment of humans.
In experiments done by the U.K. Medical Research Council's Regenerative Medicine Centre and Cambridge University's Veterinary School, 23 hobbled dogs who had suffered spinal injuries were injected with cells grown from the nasal passages of healthy dogs. The cells were injected into their spines.

I think our society in the US needs to be more open minded about the possibilities of stem cells.

I find it quite strange this thread has not had a lot of a attention from ATS. They just made a paraplegic mammal walk again!!!! We are mammals also, same rules apply! This should be front page news IMHO.

They took the stem cells from the dogs nose and the grew them in the lab so for these purposes it shouldnt affect any religious dogma.
