- Clinical grade stem cells are created by scientists at King's College London. Hawkes, Nigel // BMJ: British Medical Journal (Overseas & Retired Doctors Edition;12/10/2011, Vol. 343 Issue 7835, p1178
The article reports that the scientists at King's College London developed clinical grade stem cells which are free of products derived from animals. It states that the products, called xeno-free stem cells, are submitted to the Great Britain Stem Cell Bank. Meanwhile, professor Peter Braude...

- Pluripotency and tumorigenicity. Brickman, Joshua M.; Burdon, Thomas G. // Nature Genetics;Dec2002, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p557
Discusses the essential of pluripotent stem cells for embryonic development and regeneration of adult tissues. Differentiation potential of embryonic stem cells; Loss of �-catenin function in mice; Role for �-catenin in embryonic differentiation rather than maintenance of a pluripotent state.

Recent developments in stem cell and gene therapy will require methods to monitor stem cell survival and integration repeatedly and non-invasively with a high temporal and spatial resolution in vivo. The aim of this study was to visualise embryonic and neuronal stem cells with standard contrast...
