UK Stem Cell Initiative
"Bone marrow transplantation arose from a desire to convert the basic understanding of immunology, radiation and cancer into clinical benefit for patients. Progress was painstakingly slow, and would not have occurred without experimentation in animals: first in mice, then in dogs. Its success required the parallel development of tissue-matching, materials technology, careful animal experimentation, antibiotics, chemotherapy and the technology of cell separation.... As with previous stem cell therapies, future stem cell therapies are likely to develop at varying rates and with varying efficiencies, reflecting the breadth of problems encountered for each therapy along the way."
