GMT - 3 Hours US researchers make stem cells quickly from skin

WASHINGTON: Researchers have found a surprisingly quick and apparently safe way to transform ordinary skin cells into both stem cells -- the body's master cells -- and muscle cells.

They said on Thursday their method may provide a way to generate tissue in a new science called regenerative medicine, which doctors hope will eventually lead to ways to repair injuries and eventually perhaps even replace whole organs.
