Submission + - SPAM: Stem Cells for Burned Skin

jimcon101 writes: "The University of Pittsburgh scientists have developed a device which sprays stem cells on to burned skin, allowing the healthy skin to grow again. In the procedure, the stem cells are isolated from healthy parts of the burn victim’s skin and are added to a water solution. The stem cells are then loaded into the spray gun, and the cells are sprayed directly onto the wound, and the process allows the healthy skin to grow again. According to scientists, the new method has been successfully used to treat 12 patients and it can significantly reduce the healing time from months to days."
