Manganas et al. (Reports, 9 November 2007, p. 980) used a metabolic biomarker identified in vitro to characterize the existence of neural progenitor cells in vivo. Although their detailed experiments and general approach are laudable, aspects of their magnetic resonance spectroscopy data and analyses raise questions about their results.
