Stem Cells: The Facts

Tue, 14 Oct 2014

There is a lot of information available regarding stem cells and it can be helpful to read a simple fact sheet that breaks it down into smaller parts. From this, the public can choose to progress to more detailed reading if desired.



Major Diseases and Stem Cells

Tue, 14 Oct 2014

Stem cells may help cancer, retinal diseases, diabetes, heart disease and Parkinson's disease. Their potential to reduce morbidity and mortality from these diseases offers hope to the many sufferers.



Overview of Stem Cell Therapy

Sun, 12 Oct 2014

Stem cell therapies are currently being used to treat diseases such as leukaemia. Scientists must, however, first address ethical and practical challenges before stem cell therapy can gain wide acceptance.



Ovarian Function and Stem Cells

Fri, 10 Oct 2014

Stem cells have shown promise in restoring fertility for women who suffer from premature ovarian failure.



Religion and Adult Stem Cell Research

Fri, 10 Oct 2014

Religious groups tend to support the use of adult stem cells rather than embryonic stem cells for a variety of ethical and moral reasons.



Embryonic Stem Cells

Thu, 09 Oct 2014

Embryonic stem cells have perhaps the most potential to treat disease but they are also the most controversial due to their harvesting from foetal tissue. Issues such as host immune rejection must also be addressed.



Adult vs. Embryonic Stem Cells

Sun, 28 Sep 2014

Embryonic stem cells have a greater potential for treating disease than do adult stem cells. The chance for rejection is, however, higher with embryonic stem cells.



Adult Stem Cells

Sun, 28 Sep 2014

Adult stem cells are less controversial than embryonic stem cells but their potential isn't as great. Continued research should teach us more about the application of adult stem cells.



Restoration of Paralysis, can Stem Cells Help?

Thu, 25 Sep 2014

Stem cells show promise for helping paralysis, but more research is needed for the treatment to become a safe, successful reality.



Stem Cell Research Around the World

Wed, 24 Sep 2014

Internationally, stem cell policies and research vary a great deal. Countries with a strong international influence can also have a major effect on policies in other nations.



Properties of a Stem Cell

Sun, 21 Sep 2014

Stem cells are unique in that they are unspecialized, can self-renew for long periods of time, and have the ability to differentiate into specialized cells. Research will hopefully teach us how these special properties are regulated.



Multipotent Stem Cells

Sun, 21 Sep 2014

Multipotent stem cells are a specialized cell type that is produced from pluripotent stem cells. They are found in adult tissues where they function to replenish damaged cells.
