Abstract

BALLO, R; GREENBERG, L J  and  KIDSON, S H. A new class of stem cells in South Africa: iPS cells. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.1, pp.16-17. ISSN 2078-5135.

Created from adult rather than embryonic cells, induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells represent a breakthrough in stem cell science, and their pioneers have been recognised with the 2012 Nobel Prize in Medicine. These cells offer new hope in the treatment of pathogenetic diseases, but there is still a way to go on the road to effective therapeutic applications.
