Wow, really? Personally, I would be... cautious about vets promoting stem cell treatments, but that's me. Still not entirely proven with a lot of question marks over these procedures, and while there are definitely uses for stem cells the initial 'promise' is known to have been very overhyped. I bet it is really expensive too and a nice little earner. :x . On SM -- I agree, I can't see how stem cells could possibly change the physiological structures that cause SM -- the skull cannot start to grow and expand to fit an overlarge brain; the brain won't shrink. And it would be pretty darn high risk to inject stem cells into the brain area, just cannot see that as a 'near future' event. :yikes I think stating this is in the 'near future' is pretty misleading but maybe someone has some scientific research that says otherwise? I follow a lot of research via science publications and have always understood these possible applications are way, way off in the future still.
Near future applications will include treatment of internal medicine conditions
