Stem Cells are helping science?
The widespread use of the
adult stem cells in scientific research and medical research
is becoming a common practice in America and other western
countries as well as several of the eastern developed
After the embryonic stem cell
becomes formed into the type of cell desire by the body they
are then cased as adult stem cells which then remain
constant for the rest of the cells life.
Just like muscle growth the
stem cells are repeatedly diminished, renewed and are used
in the constant repair of the body as it breaks down over
our life cycle.
Some adult stem cells have
the ability to mutate or change into several forms of cells
to benefit the body when different parts are in need of
For example stem cells that
are required for the repair of muscle tissue may change to
an organ tissue stem cell such as the liver cells because
the liver tissue is in greater need of repair.
Medical research has been
done over the last few decades to find ways of manipulating
the adult stem cells in a way that can benefit mankind in a
This may mean that the stem
cells are taken from one person and used in another or that
the cells are taken from one person then cultivated and
replaced into the same person to give them a boost in
repairing their body.
Science has tried to
manipulate the adult stem cells and has had several
successful attempts but there is still plenty of room for
improvement and further research to be done.
