The Daily Mail reports on the work of German researchers to use adult stem cells from the hip bones of patients with liver cancer to grow their livers big enough to remove the cancerous sections.

The National Institutes of Health is providing a $1 million grant (with the possibility of it being extended to $4 million) to a biotech company which will focus its work on using stem cells from amniotic fluid and the placenta to help treat diabetes.

German authorities are working to stop a rash of infanticides.
