ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on a method for the preparation of human embryonic stem (ES) cells. It references a study by E. S. Ng and colleagues published in a 2005 issue of "Blood" journal. The method devised by the researchers was based on work using serum-free medium to produce mesoderm from murine ES cells.
