    This book tells the story of the breakthroughs in working with embryonic stem cells and how this may help us grow new tissues to repair injuries. Scientists and medical researchers hope to induce stem cells to become nerve and muscle cells, which will then replace nonfunctioning cells and eliminate many common disabilities.   As someone who has a fair bit of knowledge about stem cells, especially with regards to their involvement in cancer, I won’t be injecting them into any part of my body anytime soon.

      Looking for a stem cell book that is clear and tells the real story of stem cells? Take a look at my book, Stem Cells: An Insider’s Guide. It is a broad look at the exciting stem cell field, warts and all. I’ve written about the types of stem cells, what goes on in research labs studying these cool cells, biotechs in this area trying to develop safe and effective regenerative medicine.   The book The Stem Cell Hope was written by Alice Park, a writer for Time magazine, is about the scientists who pioneered the field of stem cell research. The premise of the book was to inform the reader about embryonic stem cell research and the relevance of the topic. Some of the scientists children, who were diabetic, were the inspiration because they were so important to them; /5(12).

      Stem cells are unique in that they have the ability to divide infinitely into specialized units. Think of them as the building blocks of life that can be constructed into any body part like brain.   Stem-cell transplant: What would I say to the stranger who saved my life? An unknown donor's stem cells were used to treat Hannah Partos's leukaemia. One day, she would like to meet him.

When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or differentiate into a specific cell type with a specialized function, such as a bone, cartilage or muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a neuron, based upon the microenvironments.

These characteristics distinguish stem cells from other cell. ‘Without having stored the stem cells of his newborn sister, my son would not have recovered from his illness. Everyone should know about the potential of stem cell therapy and how it can save lives.

Various cell and tissue types from both embryos and (adult) tissues after birth contain stem cells. Embryonic stem cells, derived from embryos 3 to 5 days after fertilization of an egg in a laboratory test tube, are considered to be pluripotent, whereas stem cells derived from postnatal tissues are generally considered to be multi- or unipotent.A pluripotent stem cell is an undifferentiated cell that has the potential to divide and differentiate into any of the cell-types of the human body.

Stem Cell Therapy (SCT), is the utilization of these cells in order to assist the body in the healing and regeneration of its existing cells. Depending on the conditions, pluripotent stem cells.Adult Stem Cell Success Story - Sickle Cell Anemia.
