Did anyone catch the report on Newsnight Scotland last night about the opening of the stem cell research facility in Edinburgh. The main guy who was interviewed, Professor someone or other was pretty sure that within 5-10 years they will not only be able to halt the progression of this b****y illness but would also be able to repair damage that had already been done. As I said this was not a hope he was expressing but pretty much a certainty. So the question is, Do we get excited about this or do we just think it is another false dawn? Personally I tend towards the positive option. Any opinions?
