- Science and Society: Human embryonic stem cell research: ethical and legal issues. Robertson, John A. // Nature Reviews Genetics;Jan2001, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p74
The use of human embryonic stem cells to replace damaged cells and tissues promises future hope for the treatment of many diseases. However, many countries now face complex ethical and legal questions as a result of the research needed to develop these cell-replacement therapies. The challenge...
- Production of erythriod cells from human embryonic stem cells by fetal liver cell extract treatment. Yu-xiao Liu; Wen Yue; Lei Ji; Xue Nan; Xue-tao Pei // BMC Developmental Biology;2010, Vol. 10, p85
Background: We recently developed a new method to induce human stem cells (hESCs) differentiation into hematopoietic progenitors by cell extract treatment. Here, we report an efficient strategy to generate erythroid progenitors from hESCs using cell extract from human fetal liver tissue (hFLT)...
- Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Its Regulation. Smith, Anthony J. // Journal of Dental Research;Mar2007, Vol. 86 Issue 3, p197
The author discusses the ethical debate over human embryonic stem cell research (hESC). It is stressed that there is considerable disparity between the nations of the world with regard to regulatory control of hESC research and its public funding. It is noted that support for hESC research...
