The London based company TriStem has claimed it can take normal white blood cells and revert them to stem cells. The claims from the company are not new, but they have recently conducted the experiments with independent researchers in the US.

"I was extremely sceptical," said US team member Tim McCaffrey, a cardiovascular researcher at George Washington University in Washington DC,. "They did it in front of my eyes with my own blood. It's stunning."

TriStem converted the blood cells into blood producing stem cells found in bone marrow. These were then injected into mice. The stem cells went on to produce all types of blood cells. The work will be published in January.

bro, some woman from somewhere, got a surgery done in iraq? I think, that was for a spinal injury, they used her own tissue/blood/cells, in some new way I heard on a story after a Christopher Reeves one. It's like neural-netics, and atzeimers or [censored]...shark cartiladge. We probably have a cure for most everything out there in the ocean, the south pole, the amazon, brazil, north pole. All the places where bacteria, and different forms of life we have yet to study hardly thrive like lice on rice. But yea I heard about this being that DC is maybe 4 hours from me. Very interesting:)
