Chronicle Reports Possible hESC Treatment of Severed Spinal Cord

The sports section of the San Francisco Chronicle carried an intriguing but brief story this morning dealing with use of embryonic stem cells to “repair” the severed spinal cord of an injured jockey.

The story by Larry Stumes said Michael Martinez is in the UCSF medical center for an MRI exam to determine whether he will be flown to Chicago this week to determine whether he is a candidate for the experimental treatment.

A number of unanswered questions are implicit in the story. We are contacting various parties to find some answers.
