THis link has an article on turning blood cells into stem cells. The company doing the research, TriStem is in the UK claims that they can take white blood cells and revert them to Stem-cell-like state. They were able to turn white blood cells into blood generating stem cells found in the bone marrow. they are looking to treat aplastic anemia patients. Not sure how but it looks like it’s a start. It may have different applications being able to be used during various stages of the disease and recovery.
