Amniotic fluid found to be a source of ESC.....

 Another source of deriving embryonic stem cells without killing the baby. I heard Dr. Ming Wang speak of this at a meeting on using this source to cure blindness. As he said...God's way is always best.
 British researchers said they had succeeded in reprogramming amniotic fluid cells without having to introduce extra genes.

This suggests the possibility that stem cells derived from donated amniotic fluid could be stored in banks and used for medical therapies and in research, they said, offering a less problematic alternative to embryonic stem cells.
