Embryonic Stem Cells

Definition of ESCs Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are capable of propagating themselves indefinitely and can retain their ability to make all cell types within the organism. They form at the blastocyst stage of development. A blastocyst is a hollow ball of cells that is smaller than a pinhead. It has three structures- trophoblast, blastocoels and inner cell mass (Mandal, 2001). The embryonic stem cells lie within this ball of cells. Firstly, they are derived from embryos, specially obtained from eggs...

Embryonic Stem Cell Research

Excellent Embryos Stem cell treatment is a controversial topic of discussion among scientists and researchers today. By studying these cells, researchers have the potential opportunity to develop a more complete understanding of cancer and birth defects—as they are due to abnormal cell division and differentiation (Frequently np). However, there is much debate over the ethics of using embryonic stem cells in research. The embryonic stem cells used in research are “legally obtained abortants or...

Is Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research Ethical?

Is human embryonic stem cell research ethical? Yes. Some disagree because it is TRUE that, this embryonic stem cell will one day become a living person. I am not opposing this particular point. What I’m trying to state, is that, we don’t need embryonic stem cells from people who are interested to make a baby. Instead of those 1.3 million people who are choosing to have an abortion, or those people who are throwing a life into the gutters just a 1 minute pleasure… they can be the cause of saving...
