Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Stem Cells: Uses & Ethics Embryonic Adult - originates from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst (an early-stage preimplantation)- they are able to develop into the 200+ cell types of the adult body if they are specified to do so.- their two properties: pluripotency, and ability to replicate indefinitely.- embryonic stem cells can propagate themselves indefinitely - these are helpful for research because they can replicate limitless numbers of themselves. - stored in the body to replace dead or damaged cells in a specific tissue- Adult stem cells start out as embryonic stem cells and become fetal stem cells, then maturing into adult stem cells- it takes 20 maturation steps for an embryonic stem cell to turn into a mature skin cell. - researchers have been studying stem cells for many years, to try to find ways to treat health problems-stem cells can be used for any medical application because these cells are ableto turn into any cell that is needed- current research says that someday stem cells prevent or cure diseases andpossibly undo damage that has been made to a tissue Stargardts disease & diabetes Stargardts disease & diabetes Stargardt's disease -- stem cells treatments can be used toprotect and regerate the cells that detect light and sends messages to the brain in the retina. Diabetes-- stem cells can make a limitless supply of healthy insulin cells and free them from the need of insulin injections Embryonic vs. Adult Stem Cells Stem cells are reserve cells that have the capacity to grow and multiply to replace dead or damaged cells in most specialized tissues How are stem cells used in the treatment of both these diseases How is stem cell research used in medicine? Is it ethical to use embryonic stem cells for scientific research that will help with the treatment of many diseases?When considering if Stem Cells are ethical there are two things that are considered, the unborn embryo and the sick man. I believe that a person should be able to choose if they are allowed to kill an embryo. IT is closelyrelated to do the abortion issue of pro-life and pro choice! Citations- Embryonic stem cell.
