As per Science Daily its a stem cell surprise, and its being such a surprise that would divert the whole global stem cell thoughts and would overturn the previous stem cell researches.
Researchers from University of Birmingham, UK, claimed that they have able to identified key factors that could hopefully presume the chances of Mascular Dystrophy (DM) at the most primary stage.

Like all parents, Arvind Tripathi, a schoolteacher in India’s pink city of Jaipur, wants to gift his unborn child a disease-free future. As India walks the path of cutting-edge technology in healthcare, the once unthinkable is actually within grasp and Tripathi is planning to achieve his dream by banking his baby’s stem cells.
Critics of the Notre Dame selection of the president to receive an honorary degree and deliver the commencement address say Obama’s support of legal abortion and embryonic stem-cell research made him an inappropriate choice for a Catholic university- But who cares? Do any body really cares?
A University of Colorado at Boulder research team has identified a type of skeletal muscle stem cell that contributes to the repair of damaged muscles in mice. It can have crucial implications in the treatment of injured, diseased or aging muscle tissue in humans, and muscular dystrophy.
SYDNEY - An experimental procedure that dramatically strengthens stem cells’ ability to regenerate damaged tissue could offer new hope to victims of muscle-wasting diseases like myopathy and muscular dystrophy.
On 27th August,2008 Dr. George Daley and Kevin Eggan, scientists of the Harvard University made a breakthrough announcement regarding the creation of stem cells from patients with a variety of diseases. They say that this disease-specific stem cells will reshape medicine, as stem cells will make the cells to grow in the petri dish of the lab which will increase the chance of study of all degenerative diseases.
Harvard University researchers have expressed their hope that the muscle stem cell can be used as a solution to the conditions such as muscular dystrophy. Dr Amy Wagers and her team successfully transplanted muscle stem cells from healthy mice into the muscles of mice that show symptoms similar to Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
