Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A stem cell cloning procedure developing at Oregon Health and Sciences University has been patented.

The hospital began developing a unique method of transforming a person's own skin cells into stem cells back in 2007.

The breakthrough received worldwide attention and was named one of Time magazine's top two research achievements of the year.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office announced it issued the patent earlier this year.
