Embryonic stem cells are derived from the inner cell mass of the trophoblast, and have the ability to differentiate into all the tissues of the fetus. As such, their potential in cell replacement therapy and regenerative medicine has been widely acknowledged. Useful cell types such as neurons, cardiomyocytes, hepatocytes, pancreatic beta cells, and blood cells have all been successfully derived in the laboratory. Furthermore, embryonic stem cells may be utilized in novel immunomodulatory… CONTINUE READING
