World’s First Reprogrammed Stem Cell Implemented on Japanese Man

Researchers successfully implemented reprogrammed induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) with the use of an anonymous donor. IPS cells are significantly different from conventional stem cells in the sense that they are derived from mature cells of an individual. The process of retrieving and developing iPS cells starts with the extraction of mature cells from the subject. These cells are readily available in most parts of the human body, including the skin.
