ABSTRACT
The article discusses the discovery of a technology by the scientists at International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) which helps produce liver cells uncontaminated with undifferentiated cells. It says that the starting materials for liver cells production are pluripotent stem cells, either human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) or proprietary human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) from ISCO. Andrey Semechkin, president of ISCO, states that the technology allows cell separation without any cell damage.
