Stem Cell Research
Stem cells come from embryos, fetuses, or adults that retain the capacity to develop into specialized cells and regenerate themselves; Scientists could manipulate and study stem cells in hope of using them to cure diseases. There are great possibilities in the stem cell research because they have the potential in the development of therapies and replacing defective or damaged cells. Resulting from a variety of disorders and injuries. Such as Parkinson disease, Heart disease and Diabetes. Stem cells could very important for medical research. The cells could help us cure the incurable and maybe other impossible ideas. There are different kind of stem cells to research, (Cell Specialization and Development, Medical Drug Testing,

For example it may be possible to generate a heathy heart from stem cells in the laboratory, then transplant the fully functioning and compatible heart to the patient. The possibilities are endless but to get the kind of stem cells needed they have to use a fetus that is aborted, and cells from the fetus are used to establish fetal cells. This mean the cells of the fetus are undeveloped and can form into any persons specific trait of cells. Cloned genes make many useful pharmaceuticals such as human insulin, growth hormone, clotting factors, fertility drugs, and vaccines.
In 1960s, researchers first discovered that bone marrow is soft, gelatinous tissue that fills the medullary cavities - the centers of bones contains at least two types of stem cells. One type named "hematopoietic" stem cell found to form all kinds of blood cells. The second type of stem cell was called "stromal cells" cartilage, and connective tissue cells. Which mean are nerves in all around are body, those cells are the foundation of stem cell research without them we could not have discovered the possibilities of their properties or great treatment and cures we can use with stem
