Campaign Highlights Adult Stem Cell Research

Ad Feedback

The Family Research Council is launching a national campaign to highlight treatments using adult stem cells.

Adult stem cells can be taken from just about any tissue, like blood or skin.

Doctors manipulate them, and in some cases return them to the same patient, lessening concerns about rejection.

Supporters say treatments are leading to breakthroughs in all areas of medicine, including stroke.

"The first patient who came in to the emergency room was paralyzed on one side of his body and couldn't speak," Dr. David Prentice of the Family Research Council. "Within 24 hours, they used his own adult stem cells and 11 days later, he had no signs of paralysis and said his first words."

Research is being done to prove the cells are just as effective as embryonic stem cells, which have long caused debate.
