Children’s Hospital Permitted To Use Stem Cell Technology
After three years of negotiations, Palo Alto-based StemCells will allow Children's Hospital of Orange County use of its technology to extract stem cells. Under the agreement, the hospital can use the StemCells technology to extract, grow and use neural stem cells for noncommercial purposes. The company previously had objected to a hospital researcher's use of the technology and his donation of extracted cells to other scientists.
