Purported stem-cell breakthrough faces acid test of replicability

Scientists are trying to replicate in human cells a method of changing mouse blood cells into an embryonic-like state by immersing them in a mild acid solution. The mouse experiment garnered international attention, but scientists say they have failed so far to replicate the results using human cells. The efforts might have failed because they did not follow the exact protocols of the mouse study, but the process was touted as being easy and inexpensive, stem cell researcher Paul Knoepfler said.
