ABSTRACT
Presents an editorial on how the safety and quality of stem cell therapy must be assured before the treatment can benefit patients. Potential of stem cell therapy to fight degenerative disorders, such as diabetes and heart disease; How the number of human embryonic stem cell lines increased considerably from 2002 to 2004, but no stem cells have been grown in conditions that would be expected for a pharmaceutical product destined for consumer use; How the drive to be the first to provide cell lines for therapy could compromise safety.
