Animal stem cell tests could lead to bonanza

Tests for liver damage using animal stem cells from animals could be worth “several hundred million pounds”, says a Scottish biotech company. CXR Biosciences, of Dundee, has teamed up with Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute and the US company Geron to create tests which would make it unnecessary to carry out liver damage tests on animals. The liver is responsible for about 60%of all drug test problems.
