Embryonic Stem Cells
: Early Discovery and Isolation Procedure
Embryonic stem cells
continue to be portrayed by some scientists as the ultimate stem cell therapy, despite the continuing lack of evidence for their efficacy, whether it be the few patients who have received injections of embryonic stem cells
, or in the many lab mice and rats who have undergone embryonic stem cell
Washington, Jan 05 ( ANI ): Biologists have discovered an effective strategy that could prevent the human immune system from rejecting the grafts derived from human embryonic stem cells
, a major problem now limiting the development of human stem cell therapies.
Creating embryonic stem cells
by nuclear transfer in humans, he says, is "the next major technological advance since Dolly."
The debate focuses on research on human embryonic stem cells
, not on adult stem cells, accepted by all member states.
The suspension of all grants, contracts and applications that involve the use of human embryonic stem cells
has been temporarily lifted.
Some researchers studying human embryonic stem cells
are surprised, disappointed, and even angry over the legal back-and-forth over the federal government policy on funding research using the cells.
Embryonic stem cells
come from early-stage embryos that are just a few days old.
The world's first authorized test in people of a treatment derived from human embryonic stem cells
has been cleared to begin by the U.S.
The Obama administration has begun approving new lines of human embryonic stem cells
that are eligible for federally funded experiments, opening the way for millions of taxpayer dollars to be used to conduct research that was put off-limits by President George W.
