|aLooks at stem cell research and its potential, following three young people with currently untreatable conditions. Dean Thurd, whose inherited dilated cardiomyopathy could kill him at any time, visits the London Chest Hospital where a trial is under way to inject adult stem cells directly into the heart wall; Anthony Bart, whose leg was amputated after a rugby accident, heads to Tampere University, Finland, where a team is working on adult stem cells collected from human fat; and Sophie Morgan, paralysed from the waist down after a car accident, finds out whether there really has been a breakthrough that could get her back on her feet, at the University of California.
