Science Daily reports that for the first time, human embryonic stem cells have been cultured under chemically controlled conditions without the use of animal substances, which is essential for future clinical uses. “Now, for the first time, we can produce large quantities of human embryonic stem cells in an environment that is completely chemically defined,” says professor Karl Tryggvason, who led the study at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet. “This opens up new opportunities for developing different types of cells which can then be tested for the treatment of disease.”
