    and to be able to accept them as reality. However, when there are new scientific discoveries there are often debates on its reliability and whether or not it’s ethical to use such means, but usually is accepted within a decade or two. The use of stem cells, however, has been a topic of debate since the 1970s and shows no sign of ending just yet. Even so, research in this field has continued and has shown that…

  • 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:…

  • Stem Cell Research Essay

    Since 1868, when Ernst Haeckel, used the term, ‘stem cell’ to describe a single cell organism that acted as an ancestor to all living organisms, stem cells have become the focus for many medical researches (Children 's Hospital Boston). Several studies have shown that stem cells can cure many ailments that cannot be reversed with existing treatment and those that even lead to permanent damages of the human body. Existing studies have shown that stem cells can help to cure macular degeneration,…

  • The Controversy Of Embryonic Stem Cells

    Stem cell research has caused tremendous controversy over the latest years. Because embryonic stem cells are pluripotent and undifferentiated, they have the potential to become any cell in the adult body and are present in all living organisms. Tissue (adult) stem cells are taken from specific parts of the body, but can only give rise to their tissue of origin. These tissue cells are used naturally by the body to replace damaged cells. Research into both of these types of cells seems very…

  • Stem Cell Research Topics

    Stem cell research has been a topic of interest since 1956. In that year, the first bone marrow transplant was performed by Dr. E Donnall Thomas in the state of New York. The patient had received radiotherapy and then received a bone marrow transplant from an identical twin that then cured the patient’s leukemia. Four years later, Researchers had made extreme advancements in the discovery of bone marrow and its contents. They found there is at least two kinds of stem cells that are present in…

  • Stem Cells Controversy

    discovery of stem cells in 1978, (Murnaghan) the controversy circulating around these cells has been immense. First off, let us define stem cells; stem cells in Merriam Webster dictionary are defined as “a simple cell in the body that is able to develop into any one of various kinds of cells (such as blood cells, skin cells, etc.)” (Merriam-Webster). Furthermore, there are two types of stem cells, embryonic and somatic, and between these two types of stem cells is where the real controversy…

    Stem Cell Research in the Area of Cardiothoracic Surgery A patient has just had an immense stroke, and approximately 30,000 cardiac cells have died. The heart cannot reproduce these lost cells, and there are cardiac cells still dying. What is the doctor to do to help solve this problem? This issue is the area in which the ideology and use of stem cells come into play. Stem cells are, “Multipotent, undifferentiated cells capable of multiplication and differentiation (Paolo and Markwald).” Thus,…

  • Different Types Of Stem Cells

    STEM CELLS Stem cells are very homogenous due to the fact that they are of the same family type or lineage characteristically speaking. They are differentiated from other cells by two features. The first feature is that they are able to divide by cell division and the second feature is that under specific experimental conditions they can be directed to become tissue cells with certain functions. Stem cells are able to transform or regenerate themselves growing into the body’s approximately 200…

  • The Implications Of Embryonic Stem Cells

    Stem cells are special cells that have the ability to divide for an indefinite period and can give rise to a wide variety of specialized cell types. The term stem cell can be interpreted into many different types of stem cells, each with very different potential to treat disease. There are multiple types of stem cells but the two significant stem cell types are embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells (Panno, “Stem cells are not all equal”). Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop…
