  • Adult Stem Cells

    m cells are unique because during early life they have the ability to develop into a variety of different cell types. Essentially, stem cells are the blank slate necessary for the creation of specialized cells. These specialized cells include muscle cells, brain cells or red blood cells, etc. Adult Stem Cells and Embryonic Stem Cells – The Difference Adult Stem Cells Adult stem cells can continue to self-renew or divide, indefinitely. This enables them to produce a variety of cell types: However, although there is some evidence that suggests adult stem cells can become other types of cells, for the most part, it is believed that an adult stem cell is limited in its ability to differentiate and can only change based on the cell’s tissue of…

  • Adult And Embryonic Stem Cells

    years, there has been a large rise in stem cells research which has led to evidence of their remarkable potential. However, the use of stem cell in particular embryonic stem cells still remains a very controversial topic. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different kinds of cells. According to the national institute of health (2015), when a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either…

  • The Benefits Of Adult Stem Cells

    technology, adult stem cells can be mass produced in the lab both organically and synthetically. When found in bone marrow, adult stem cells are known to have slight regenerative properties (Kahn). As more and more of the stem cells are created, the number of trials that can occur multiply exponentially. The regenerative properties are isolated and enhanced to grow more of the specific kind of cell (Kahn). With the help of specialized cell growth, mass amounts of organ tissue and other…

  • Embryonic Vs Adult Stem Cells

    research, stem cells have the potential to eliminate all of the prior and more. Stem cells are an example of the basic building blocks of life: virtually microscopic, unspecialized cells that can evolve to nearly any kind of cell, tissue, or organ. Stem cells can be extracted from a few different places, however, the most efficient and resourceful are ones embryonic in nature. That is, obtained from human embryos. Embryonic…

  • Differences Between Adult And Embryonic Stem Cells

    Stem cells are appearing on the news more and more. Although, in reality, do many people really know what a stem cell is, or how stem cells were discovered? According to the National Institute of Health, stem cells are “cells with the ability to divide for indefinite periods in culture and to give rise to specialized cells” (“Stem Cell Basics”). In the beginning, different cells were found to have multipotent and pluripotent capabilities. It wasn’t until Canadian scientists, Ernest McCulloch…

  • The Similarities And Differences Between Embryonic And Adult Stem Cells

    lot to gain through furthering stem cell research, but medical breakthroughs should be fundamentally about saving, not destroying, human life. Therefore, I support stem cell research that does not destroy the embryo” (Michael Steele). Stem cells are very beneficial for many reasons and can be used for transplants and testing new medications to help cure diseases and cancer. The negative aspect of stem cells is that embryos can be killed for further research. The research in stem cells still…

  • Embryonic Stem Cell Research?

    Within the past decade stem cell research has been a very debatable issue within the secular and religious communities. The ongoing debate has been based on the basis of embryonic stem cell research, the moral ethics of it, versus adult stem cell research. While generalized stem cell research can and has led to huge scientific breakthroughs, the benefit from embryonic research does not warrant the risk of potentially killing a future President. So what are stem cells and why are they…

  • Stem Cell Research: A Topic Of Interest

    Stem cell research is becoming a topic of interest. Even with the shame surrounding stem cell research, the potential benefits in the scientific and medical settings outweigh the negatives. The government does not give very much money into funding embryonic stem cell research. With the little money that scientists do get, they have very tight restrictions that they have to follow in order for the government to continue to fund them. There are quite a few people in the world that are completely…

  • Benefits Of Stem Cell

    The Benefits of Stem Cell “22 people die every because they cannot receive a donated organ. That is about 10,000 deceased people every year” (“Why Organ, Eye, and Tissue Donation?”). Patient live in fear that one day their donated organ would reject and they can optimally lose their life when they have waited so long. A new type of medicine has emerged that allows for new possibilities for patient waiting for a lifesaving organ or for those in fear of rejection. Stem cell is the future of…

  • Stem Cell Research: Good Or Bad?

    other future diseases, is being challenged by a new cure all called stem cells. The term “stem cell” has been around for a quite some time, even though the actual understanding of these cells is relatively new. First used in 1868, by the biologist Ernst Haeckel, it was used to describe the extremely broad topic of egg fertilization ( Now used in a variety of different ways, stem…
