Blistering skin disease may be treatable with 'therapeutic reprogramming,' researchers say

0 Comments

Induced pluripotent stem cells made from patients with a form of blistering skin disease can be genetically corrected and used to grow back healthy skin cells in laboratory dishes, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found. They've termed the new technique 'therapeutic reprogramming.'
