Stem Cells Harvested from Baby Teeth!

There are some great and exciting things happening in the world of research. Dr. K is doing some fabulous research at Duke. Drs. Naldini and Biffi are making great strides at San Raffaele Institute in Milan, Italy; and now there is something new that I'm excited to report! You may have never heard of this, it's the Tooth Cell Bank! They harvest stem cells from children's baby teeth, which could possibly help save lives! Lives affected with various forms of the Leukodystrophies, MS, ALS, and others.

Please take a look at this! (Click the picture).

Thanks so much!
