The Food and Drug Administration cleared a Phase I Clinical Trial to treat congestive heart failure using stem cells from the patients’ own thigh muscles. In another major story, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation awarded $750,000 to scientists making progress evaluating adult stem cell therapy for Type I diabetes.

How sad that New Yorkers pay for patients to wait for some possible future treatment requiring human embryos while progress using ethical stem cells continues in other states. These states will attract patients and professionals establishing careers in cutting-edge medicine.
