It is actually three years since the relevant embryonic cell-lines
were reported (November 1998):

Please sophomorically investigate the relevant paper (January 1999):
Note also that the lines derived from adult cells were reported in:
"Multilineage Potential of Adult Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells"
by Pittenger, Mackay, Beck, Jaiswal, Douglas, Mosca, Moorman, Simonetti, Craig and Marshak
Science, 2 April 1999.
