Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

Stem cell, an undifferentiated cell that can divide to produce some offspring cells that continue as stem cells and some cells that are destined to differentiate (become specialized). Stem cells are an ongoing source of the differentiated cells that make up the tissues and organs of animals and plants. There is great interest in stem cells because they have potential in the development of therapies for replacing defective or damaged cells resulting from a variety of disorders and injuries, such as Parkinson disease, heart disease, and diabetes

Timeline of major events in stem cell research policy …

Saturday, August 25th, 2018

Stem cells have been used in medicine since the 1950s when bone marrow transplants were first used to treat leukemia. Congressional involvement in stem cell policy started as early as 1974.The first major amendment related to the use of federal funds for research involving embryonic stem (ES) cells occurred in 1996.From this point onward, this timeline provides policy landmarks affecting the course of stem cell research in the U.S.For information prior to 1996,click here (link is external).

stem-cells | ETHICAL, LEGAL, AND SOCIAL ISSUES

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, Congress passed the Dickey-Wicker Amendment, in which Jay Dickey and Roger Wicker argued against funding research in which human embryos were created and then destroyed for the purpose of stem cells. In 2001 President George Bush passed an executive order further limiting research on stem cells by preventing the creation of additional embryonic stem cell lines to add to the 22 in existence at the time

The Legal and Ethical Issues of Cloning That Make it …

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Many people are also concerned that clones would be produced with a specific need and purpose in mind and such cloned individuals would be traded or sold, amounting to human trafficking which is illegal. At the other end of spectrum are some experts who are of the opinion that the embryo does not require any particular moral consideration. They say that, at the stage when an embryo is cloned, it is just a bunch of cells that contain DNA, which are not very different from the millions of skin cells that we shed everyday

While the de-identification may clear the institution of any obligations under HIPAA or the need for an IRB-approved informed consent procedure, Clayton (2004) explains that public opinion is different, and that most patients still believe they should be informed of all potential research uses of their biological materials and retain some autonomy over their use

FDA Grants Orphan Drug Status to Cellect’s ApoGraft for Acute GvHD and Chronic GvHD – PR Newswire (press release)

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

GvHD is a transplant associated disease representing an outcome of two immune systems crashing into each other. In many transplantations from donors, and especially in Bone Marrow Transplantations (BMT), the transplanted immune mature cells (as opposed to stem cells) attack the host (patient receiving the transplant) and create severe morbidity and in many cases even death. This disease happens as a result of current practices being unable to separate the GvHD causing cells from the much needed stem cells.Cellect's ApoGraft was designed to eliminate immune responses in any transplantation of foreign cells and tissues.

Embryonic stem cell – Wikipedia

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) are pluripotent stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst, an early-stage preimplantation embryo.[1][2] Human embryos reach the blastocyst stage 45 days post fertilization, at which time they consist of 50150 cells. Isolating the embryoblast or inner cell mass (ICM) results in destruction of the blastocyst, which raises ethical issues, including whether or not embryos at the pre-implantation stage should be considered to have the same moral or legal status as embryos in the post-implantation stage of development.[3][4] Human ES cells measure approximately 14 m while mouse ES cells are closer to 8 m.[5] Embryonic stem cells, derived from the blastocyst stage early mammalian embryos, are distinguished by their ability to differentiate into any cell type and by their ability to propagate. Embryonic stem cell's properties include having a normal karyotype, maintaining high telomerase activity, and exhibiting remarkable long-term proliferative potential.[6] Embryonic stem cells of the inner cell mass are pluripotent, that is, they are able to differentiate to generate primitive ectoderm, which ultimately differentiates during gastrulation into all derivatives of the three primary germ layers: ectoderm, endoderm, and mesoderm

Sperm from stem cells could help some types of male infertility – BioNews

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

Cells from genetically infertile male mice have been turned into sperm, and used to produce healthy pups. Researchers hope the technique could one day help men with certain causes of infertility. Experts hailed the work as 'very encouraging' and 'fascinating science', while noting that the technique is experimental only, and raises ethical and legal considerations should it be developed for humans.

(The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Patricia Stapleton, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (THE CONVERSATION) The first test-tube baby made headlines around the world in 1978, setting off intense debate on the ethics of researching human embryos and reproductive technologies. Every breakthrough since then has raised the same questions about designer babies and playing God but public response has grown more subdued rather than more engaged as assisted reproductive technologies have become increasingly sophisticated and powerful
