Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. (“ACT”) (OTC: ACTC.PK) reported that it is feasible to differentiate human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) into functional human vasculature. The research, which appears in the January issue of the journal Regenerative Medicine, shows for the first time that human progenitor cells –known as hemangioblasts– have the potential for both endothelial cell (EC) and vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) lineage differentiation.
