Stem cell research: The new medicine of the future

f a few should be allowed to forestall the health and well-being of the many."

If stem cell research is allowed to flourish, as it is in the United Kingdom, treatments derived from stem cells could potentially cure a wide range of fatal and debilitating illnesses: diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, lymphoma, spinal cord injuries and many other ailments afflicting millions.

In the United Kingdom, we're breaking new ground, rewriting medical books and helping to usher in the new medicine of the future. We fully acclaim Prop. 71 and view it as leap in the right direction. Whether it will be enough to bring back top stem cell researchers to the United States is a question only time can answer.

Roger Pedersen is a stem-cell researcher formerly of the University of California at San Francisco who left the United States in 2001 to continue his research at the multidisciplinary Cambridge Stem Cell Institute in England. Dame Julia Polak, M.D., is head of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Center at Imperial College in London and one of the longest survivors of heart- and lung-transplant surgery in the United Kingdom.
