These experimental systems allow scientists to dissect key molecular pathways that specify cell fate decisions in embryonic
Increasing reproductive efficiency is important in the poultry industry and failure of an egg to hatch; mainly due to infertility and embryonic
mortality reduces reproductive efficiency.
So for any future production of SC-[beta] cells, the authors have shown that no embryonic
stem cells are necessary" (my emphasis).
Unlike adult cells, which have already followed a path to become, say, heart cells or neurons, embryonic
stem cells are uniquely poised to become any cell in the body.
Scientists cited four main reasons for their problems accessing human embryonic
stem cell lines: difficulty obtaining material transfer agreements, failure to acquire research approval from internal institutional oversight committees, cell line owners that were unwilling to share and federal policy considerations.
Sherley of the Boston Biomedical Research Institute and Theresa Deisher of AVM Biotechnology in Seattle, who argued that the funding of embryonic
stem cell research would cause them "irreparable injury" by increasing competition and therefore potentially taking funds away from adult stem cell research, their area of work.
According to BioTime, human embryonic
progenitor cells are intermediate in the developmental process between embryonic
stem cells and fully differentiated cells.
Experts have also warned of the health dangers, including the risk of death, to women who provide embryonic
stem cells because of the type of treatment the women are given to increase their fertility, namely 'superovulation'.
Instead of acknowledging the wisdom of pursuing all productive channels of research, the White House adopted a smug "I told you so" justification for Bush's six-year ban on federal funding for embryonic
stem cell research.
To date, the promise of embryonic
stem-cell testing has been overstated.
Adult stem cell research is already benefiting human patients with more than 70 conditions, whereas destructive embryonic
stem cell research has delivered no benefits.
Tokyo, Japan, May 2, 2006 - (JCN) - Tohoku University's Biomedical Engineering Research Organization (TUBERO), in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and Cardiff University, has verified that neural cell species can be derived from mouse embryonic
Wansbrough states that " those who believe that life begins at conception" object to the use of embryonic
26), trivializes the biological fact that a new human life begins when the male sperm fertilizes the female ovum by saying it is only an "opinion" and therefore she is "more willing" to consider killing embryos necessary for embryonic
stem cell research.
With the threat of a presidential veto hanging over a House of Representatives bill that would expand federal financing for embryonic
stem cell research, Bonnie Lee La Madeleine's piece (pp.
