A very interesting study reported at EurekAlert suggests that adult stem cells are not directly responsible for regeneration in at least a few successful therapies trialed in past months and years.

The same benefits can be obtained by simply transplanting the macrophages instead of the adult stem cells; apparently a much easier procedure.
