  5. -06-06-07 Biologists Make Skin Cells Work Like Stem Cells (New York Times) star
      "In a surprising advance that could sidestep the ethical debates surrounding stem cell biology, researchers have come much closer to a major goal of regenerative medicine, the conversion of a patientís cells into specialized tissues that might replace those lost to disease."

      "The new technique, developed by Shinya Yamanaka of Kyoto University, depends on inserting just four genes into a skin cell. These accomplish the same reprogramming task as the egg does, or at least one that seems very similar."

      "The technique, if adaptable to human cells, is much easier to apply than nuclear transfer, would not involve the expensive and controversial use of human eggs, and should avoid all or almost all of the ethical criticism directed at the use of embryonic stem cells." 06-07

  6. Biologists Make Skin Cells Work Like Stem Cells (MSNBC News)
      "In a leap forward for stem cell research, three independent teams of scientists reported Wednesday that they have produced the equivalent of embryonic stem cells in mice using skin cells without the controversial destruction of embryos."

      "If the same could be done with human skin cells ó a big if ó the procedure could lead to breakthrough medical treatments without the contentious ethical and political debates surrounding the use of embryos."

      "Embryonic stem cells are prized because they can develop into all types of tissue. So experts believe they might be used for transplant therapies in people who are paralyzed or have illnesses ranging from diabetes to Parkinsonís disease." 06-07

  7. Biologists Make Skin Cells Work Like Stem Cells (Christian Science Monitor)
      "Scientists in the United States and Japan announced yesterday that they have developed artificial stem cells from adult mouse cells. If the approach can be retooled for humans, they say, it would avoid the ethical quicksand that surrounds the use of stem cells drawn from nascent human embryos." 06-07

  11. -01 "Biological Clock" for Aging Found in Genes (CBS News)
      "Researchers have discovered a 'biological clock' embedded in the human genome that can indicate how old a person's tissues and cells really are. The hope is with this clock, they may eventually find a way to slow or reverse aging in some parts of the body."
