Stem cells in the Wild East

An Israeli boy with the inherited disease ataxia telangiectasia apparently received neural stem cell treatments in Moscow a few years ago.
Now he has a brain tumor, Israeli physicians report in PLOS Medicine.
Critical quote from the paper:
“This is the first report of a human brain tumor developing from transplanted neural stem cells.”
Yow!
