    Stem Cell Research Legislation One of the most controversial topics discussed in politics today is that of human embryonic stem cell research. This type of stem cell research is used for the investigation of basic cells which develop organisms (Experiment Resources, 2008), and these cells are typically found in the fetuses of unborn babies. This is the reason why this topic is so controversial because of the way that those stem cells are harvested and this could be considered as the sacrifice

  • The Ethics Of Stem Cell Research Essay

    Ethics of Stem Cell Research Stem cell research is a relatively new technology that takes primitive human cells and develops them into other cells in the human body, including blood cells, brain cells, nerve cells, bone cells and skin cells. The goal of any stem cell therapy is to repair a damaged tissue that can't heal itself. This might be accomplished by transplanting stem cells into the damaged area and directing them to grow new, healthy tissue. It may also be possible to force stem cells already

    Essay - Stem Cell Research According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Stem cells have the potential to develop many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. They can also be used as an internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive (page 1 Stem Cell Research Basics). There are two types of stem cells, embryonic stem cells and somatic or adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are Primitive

    Benefit of Stem Cell Research Mary Bennett ENGL112 Professor Brady March 25, 2009 According to The National Institute of Health, stem cells are unspecialized cells that repair themselves through cell divisions for long periods and they grow to special cell types (2009). In fact, stem cell research studies the replacements of damaged or dead cells with healthy stem cells in children and adults. In this respect, there are many promising medical treatments from the different types of stem cells

    Stem cell research began in the 1960s when Ernest A. McCulloch and James E. Till published the discovery of specialized cells within mammals that aid in the growth and repair of specialized tissues (Becker). There are two types of stem cells: embryonic and adult. Embryonic stem (ES) cells are found inside of a blastocyst and are pluripotent, meaning that they have the power to differentiate into the derivatives of the three primary germ cells. A proposed use of ES cells is for regenerative medicine
