Stem cells: hype or hope?

Paul-Visse, Gesine LU ; Li, Jia-Yi LU and Brundin, Patrik LU (2002) In Drug Discovery Today 7(5). p.295-302
Abstract
Stem cells undergo self-renewal and differentiate into multiple lineages of mature cells. The identification of stem cells in diverse adult tissues and the findings that human embryonic stem cells can be proliferated and differentiated has kindled the imagination of both scientists and the public regarding future stem cell technology. These cells could constitute an unlimited supply of diverse cell types that can be used for cell transplantation or drug discovery. The new options raise several fundamental ethical issues. This review gives an overview of the scientific basis underlying the hope generated by stem cell research and discusses current ethical and funding regulations.
