Many aspects of the technique must be adapted before testing can begin on humans ugg skor, said Dr. Irving Weissman ugg zapatos, a co-senior author of the study and director of the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
Weissman said the work was done on mice that offered a poor mimic for the human immune system. Still ugg i sverige, he suggested the remaining hurdles could eventually be overcome.
"It is essentially a surgical strike against the blood-forming stem cells venta ugg," Weissman said of the technique his team studied.
