I know that Miami college in Florida has been working on this in animals, so they can do this in humans. They have been doing wonders. Give them a call. It might just change your life. Be persistent about it with them. You could also call up Pen State. Their are some wonderful BME people there. M for Medical that is. They might be able to help. Call Florida first for sure. God bless your journey.

A fertilised egg has totipotency, or total potential for about four days. Days after fertilisation,the totipotent stem cell divides and then matures to cause more specialised stem cells called pluripotent stem cells.Basically, the pluripotent stem cell can do everything the totipotent one can except for creating an entire organism.


so, how can we take totipotent cells frm a human? is tht practically possible? if we could, it wud be great, isn't it?
