More Great Stem-Cell News!

Umbilical Cord-blood stem-cells, that is.

From today's San Francisco Chronicle:

"Children with sickle cell disease were cured following umbilical cord blood transplants from their siblings, according to findings reported Thursday in Washington, D.C., by doctors from Children's Hospital Oakland.

Of 43 youths across the country who received transplants from compatible siblings, 90 percent were cured, said blood specialist Dr. Bertram Lubin, senior vice president of research at Children's Hospital."

Remind us again why California voters shelled out $3billion+ for immoral, embryo destroying stem-cell research, while cord-blood and adult stem cells are curing people right and left?

That is great news!

Father, my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting you via telephone last week as we visited Sts. Peter and Paul church in SF. So glad to hear that you're still fighting the good fight. Keep up the great work, and keep the blog postings coming!

God bless.
