    varriety of reasons.One reason is the ability to determine the human bodies complex function in development. It will give scientist a better look into discovering genetics and the molecular oversight in cell division. Also, with understanding differentiation, different procedures or discoveries can help aide in curing cancer and manage birth defects (“Stem Cell Basics”). Another use of stem cells in the biomedical field is conservation. With conservation, sperm can be retrieved from high genetic…

    “Under certain physiologic or experimental conditions, stem cells can be induced to become mature cells with special functions that help cure diseases” (Aldridge). Studies have shown that stem cells can replace virtually any tissue or organ that is injured or diseased, yet no other medicine or drug has been able to perform such a task. Most people would rather choose chemotherapy treatments simply because stem cell processes take years to confirm. However, are stem cells a higher quality when…

    Stem-cell Therapy is the use of stem cells, which are undifferentiated cells that can differentiate into any specialised cell, to either treat or prevent a disease. There are two main types of stem cells, embryonic stem cells extracted from the early blastocyst phase in embryonic development and adult stem cells found in the bone marrow. The difference between these two is their totipotency or ability to become a new cell; embryonic stem cells can develop into any type of cell, they are…

    The ability to cure any single cell disease, the ability to further research efforts in biology and neuroscience, and the ability to cure paralysis in patients. These feats are achieved because of stem cell therapy, but a limitation exists that stumps further ability for cures. Currently, stem cell therapy only works when exactly one type of cell needs replaced; once more types are added into the mix, stem cell therapy loses its value. Further research into stem cells will grant promise that…
