ABSTRACT
The article examines developments in stem cell research. The world's first clinical trial will begin in 2009 on the use of embryonic stem cells to help repair damaged spinal cords. This reflects the expansion of research on the therapeutic use of stem cells from the replacement of damaged cells to the development of drugs and research on the biological origins of diseases.
