This encyclopedia page describes the relationship between cloning and its embryonic cells. Cloned embryonic cells carry important advantages in biomedical research, drug recovery, and toxicity testing that regular cells don’t: these cells can be models when animal cells are not available, research in patients is too dangerous or invasive, in cases of rare diseases. Furthermore, cloned cells can even be used to treat patients. For example, if somebody had a lack of white blood cells, cloning could theoretically build them for their immune system.
