It frequently happens in science that what you throw away turns out to be most valuable. It happened to Deepak Nagrath, but not for long.

It is sad that this research until now was using mice, especially as the report states you can't inject substances from mice into people. Human fat cells sounds a far more logical approach. Thank you Leslie.

Actually Carole, as I understand it, tha fact they are mouse cells is not the problem. It is the fact this substance comes from cancer cell in mice. The medical profession routinely uses dog and monkey kidney cells to grow large batch vaccines in, such as the recent H1N1 flu vaccine. There doesn'e seem to be a problem, (other than aan ethic one) so they say. Makes you think doesn't it?

Thanks for the info Leslie, this was new to me.
