ABSTRACT
The article reports on the limit of stem cell therapies. According to a U.S. research, injecting human embryonic stem cells into mice triggered the immune system to attack the stem cells rather than accept them. It presents a photograph of a coloured scanning electron micrograph of human embryonic stem cells.
