A Thai nurse stands under monitors as a doctor performs an experimental stem cell procedure on a patient at Bangkok Heart Hospital in Bangkok December 19, 2005. That involves injecting the patient's heart with cells cultivated from his own blood. Stem cell therapies have spawned controversy because very early human embryos are considered by many to be the most promising for treating human diseases. Picture taken December 19, 2005.
