STEM CELL GOOD NEWS: Don Ho says he’s feeling “100% better.”

UPDATE: Good news for autologous stem cell transplants, but bad news for embryonic stem cell research:

Scientists fretted Friday that a spectacular cloning fraud that hid in plain sight has set back legitimate stem cell work around the world.

Cloning experts and stem cell scientists said research in the potentially revolutionary field of regenerative medicine will continue unabated. But they said public confidence in their work had been weakened by a sham branded by experts as the most visible case of scientific fraud they could recall.

Scientists also struggled to explain how they didn’t earlier catch the charismatic South Korean veterinarian’s claim in a Science paper published in May that he cloned 11 human embryos to produce stem cells.

This is very unfortunate.
