The article presents information on the benefits of patient-specific histocompatible stem cells as an alternative for limitations in stem cell engineering. A study was conducted on animal model to help the establishment of histocompatible, autologous stem cells. The study found that genetic characteristics of the follicle culture-derived stem cells that was produced by parthenogenetic activation was similar to embryonic stem cells (ESCs) produced by normal fertilization.
