aldagenFrom the story:

Adult fat stem cells are being used in pioneering research in a Madrid hospital to rebuild the breasts of five women after they had undergone minor surgery for cancer.

The stem cells are extracted from fat taken from the patient by liposuction.

The Gregorio Marañón Hospital in the Spanish capital has presented the first implants to be made from such cells, and announced that it has so far benefitted five patients.

It’s part of European research, with 40 patients in total from the United Kingdom, Italy and Belgium as well as Spain.
