Scientists Claim Fix To Stem Cell Immune Rejection Problem August 20, 2015

Now, a team of scientists headed by biologists at UC San Diego has discovered how induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, which are derived from an individual’s own cells, could be programmed to avoid rejection from the immune system.
