  • GP talks on Overactive Bladder Guidelines

    February 15th 2010

    Thanks to all those who came along to our talk last week on the new OAB guidelines.

The response has been very positive so far, but if you have any comments at all on the guideline or would just like to put any queries to us, then please drop us an email.

Scientists are working to find out how to control these cells to make them grow into the types of tissues that we want.

    Stem cells are controversial. Some researchers use stem cells taken from human embryos and many people think this is wrong. However, it is possible to get stem cells from other sources without harming embryos.
