Stem cells in amniotic fluid

Human stem cells found in amniotic fluid Reuters/Yahoo!News 1/8/07 "Embryonic cells are considered the most malleable of the various types of stem cells, but these amniotic fluid-derived cells are a close second, said Dr. Anthony Atala..."It has been known for decades that both the placenta and amniotic fluid contain multiple progenitor cell types from the developing embryo, including fat, bone, and muscle,"...They used discarded samples from amniocentesis, a test used to check fetuses for birth defects...Atala said a bank with 100,000 specimens of the amniotic stem cells theoretically could supply 99 percent of the U.S. population with perfect genetic matches for transplant"
