Independent Discoveries About Embryonic Blood Stem Cell Creation Could Revolutionise Medical Treatments in the Future
There have been some shortages in donor blood stem cells, and biomedical engineers have been independently working to manufacture blood stem cells in laboratory conditions to solve this issue.
The achievements are part of a move in regenerative medicine towards the use of ‘induced pluripotent stem cells’ to treat disease, where stem cells are reverse engineered from adult tissue cells rather than using live human or animal embryos.
Regenerative medicine is coming forward in leaps and bounds, and there is so much more to discover as to what stem cells can do for us.
