from Agence France-Press via Firstpost
From Sept. 14:
In a world first, researchers have transformed tissue cells into skin cells to help heal serious wounds, a technique that could revolutionize care for victims of burns and other severe injuries.The research is the culmination of a decade of work and holds promise for a variety of patients, including those with serious burns or elderly patients with bedsores and other recurring lesions.The study involves a technology called "cell reprogramming" in which genes are inserted into cells to change them from one form to another.
