Aging pop stars, politicians and businessmen in Moscow now find it fashionable to use stem-cell "youth cocktails".
However, scientists have not yet decided whether stem cells can be used to effectively treat serious health disorders, Moskovsky Komsomolets writes. Moscow's beauty parlors keep advertising magic revitalization cells. They offer black-sheep, blue-shark and shark-sucker embryos as stem-cell donors. The Internet abounds in numerous ads offering to buy inexpensive embryo stem cells. One treatment session costs between $3,000-5,000 and $14,000-22,000 at local beauty parlors. The people of Russia started discussing stem cells a long time ago. Meanwhile scientists have been working with stem cells for several years. Various lab techniques can turn stem cells into liver, bone-marrow and heart cells. Teeth and hair can also be grown out of stem cells. Leading Russian clinics now use several stem-cell types, professor Yury Bloshansky, D. Sc. (Medicine), noted. Embryo cells are obtained out of aborted material in line with the national health Ministry's license. Several other research agencies deal with adult stem cells, i.e. diploid cells. Apart from clinics, the relevant licenses can be obtained by beauty parlors, too. Doctors do not perceive the use of stem cells for medical purposes as an important task at this stage. Nonetheless, stem-cell treatment techniques must be analyzed down to the minutest detail.
