Quotes

...cells are kept in banks and made available to patients based on their biological similarity, much the way blood and donor organs are now handled. "If we had these banks, we would have the raw material to do tissue engineering and grow up organs, or to grow up vessels, tendons or whatever you want."
From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "Gene transfer is now widely recognized as a powerful tool for analysis of biological events and disease processes at both the cellular and molecular level. More recently, the application of gene therapy for the treatment of human diseases, either inherited (e g., ADA deficiency) or acquired (e g., cancer or infectious disease), has received considerable attention. With the advent of improved gene transfer techniques and the identification of an ever expanding library of defective gene-related diseases, gene therapy has rapidly evolved from a treatment theory to a practical reality."
