This is actually a very stunning statistic. Every 30 seconds a peaitnt dies from diseases that could be treated with tissue regeneration or replacement. So, what can we do about it? We've talked about stem clels togniht. That's a way to do it. But still ways to go to get stem cells into patients, in tmers of actual therapies for organs.
