Life Links 5/18/07

Police in Pennsylvania found a dead child in woman's freezer. They aren't sure yet if the child was miscarried, aborted or killed shortly after birth.

Here's an article about doctors in India using adult stem cells to treat Parkinson's Disease.

A woman from West Michigan has traveled to Russia to receive injections of her own stem cells in an attempt to treat her spinal cord injury.
The stem cells are drawn from Rummelt's own blood and separated in a special machine. Then they are injected into her spinal fluid. Three trips and six injections later Rummelt can use her hip-flexers to crawl. A considerable feat, after not being able to move the lower half of her body for years.
