There are so many articles discuss about embryonic stem cell research pros and cons, here we will just share for the embryonic stem cell research pros articles.
Eventough human embryonic stem cell research has so many controversy surrounding of it’s usage in a research but their play an essential part in biomedical research to treat diseases effectively where there are currently no cures, include this kind of disease : diabetes, parkinson’s disease, cancer, paralysis from spinal cord injury.
Other nonembryonic stem-cell populations, such as blood stem cells found in the bone marrow, are routinely utilized to treat some types of blood cell cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
It’s very important for us to know and recognize that human embryonic stem cells are comes from embryos created in excess by fertility clinics, all of these embryos will be destroyed it they are not donated by couples specifically to produce embryonic stem cells for research. It’s a choice for all of us and our home work to think in everybody minds what is the most respectful way to treat these valuable embryos, which one will we choose, destroy them or provide researchers valuable insights that may one day develop lifesaving therapies and cures.
Stem cells can also be used to repair damaged tissues in a process known as Regenerative Medicine. The embryonic stem cells can assist in the development of new blood vessels especially in heart diseases. The unspecialized cells also have the potential to become a variety of cell types especially if grown with a certain type of cell. They therefore mature and become that type of cell. The research will enable the development of an entirely new science which can be used in medicine to treat future as well as current diseases like Spinal cord injuries for the example will be able to be treated as a result of using stem cells which can regrow the damaged spinal cord. There will not be any need for organ transplant because the stem cells can allow the regrowth of a person’s organs lost either through an accident, tissue damage or disease. This will make it easier for the recipient as the organ will come from their own DNA and therefore there will not be any risk of organ rejection or taking the debilitating immune suppressant medications.
