The Bioethics of Cloning

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. I can use this encyclopedia article to explain another potential benefit of cloning. This part of my paper would go more into depth about the reach cloning can have on numerous things, and exactly how much it would change life.

Through process and cloning in prime cells, scientist Shinya Yamanaka, MD, Ph.D was able to reverse the aging and contamination of cells. The sendai virus enables genes in a host cell without disturbing its development, which is critical for research. I could use this as another example of how cloning-technology is positively impacting lives and the fight against disease. Additionally, Shinya Yamanaka can be an example of how earnest and exclusive cloning research
