Several types of stem cell have been discovered from germ cells, the embryo, fetus and adult. Each of these has promised to revolutionize the future of regenerative medicine through the provision of cell-replacement therapies to treat a variety of debilitating diseases. Stem cell research is politically charged, receives considerable media coverage, raises many ethical and religious debates and generates a great deal of public interest. The tremendous versatility of embryonic stem cells versus… Expand
Stem Cell Therapeutics: Exploring Newer Alternatives to Human Embryonic Stem Cells
TLDR
In the present review, various sources of stem cells have been described, which in near future, have the potential to replace HESCs in regenerative medicine. Expand
Potential Impact and Controversy of Stem Cells in Public Health
TLDR
Stem cells are versatile in the bodies which are able to both reproduce themselves and to produce more specialized cells, and with adequate research, stem cells have the potential to treat degenerative conditions through transplanting human stem cells into patients. Expand
Stem Cell Based Therapies: A Review
TLDR
This review focuses on the different types of stem cells and their theraputic uses in treating diseases such as Parkinson’s, heart diseas es, brain injuries, diabetes, etc. in today's biome dical world. Expand
Stem Cells: Their Definition, Classification and Sources
TLDR
Both embryonic/fetal and adult stem cells are equally important and research on both types must be enthusiastically pursued since the final objective is the application of this technology for the treatment of a variety of diseases that plague mankind. Expand
Taking stem cells to the clinic: Major challenges
TLDR
The hurdles all these stem cell types have to overcome before stem cell‐based therapy becomes a genuine reality are described in detail. Expand
Review: Stem cells and gene therapy.
TLDR
The current review provides a summary of the current knowledge of stem cells and gene therapy as well as their clinical implications and related therapeutic options. Expand
Adult stem cells in neural repair: Current options, limitations and perspectives.
TLDR
In order to start clinical trials and achieve great results, the authors need to understand how stem cells interact with the host tissue, how they can manipulate or be manipulated by the microenvironment where they will be transplanted and for how long they can maintain their multipotent state to provide a full regeneration. Expand
Human blastocyst culture and derivation of embryonic stem cell lines
TLDR
This review discusses the various protocols to derive and propagate hESCs from high quality embryos together with unanswered questions that need to be addressed if this science is to be taken to the bedside. Expand
The Use of SHED in Cellular Therapy and Disease Modeling
TLDR
This work focused on stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth and their main characteristics, uses in regenerative medicine, immunomodulatory proprieties and as a cell source for modeling disease. Expand
Endometrial Stem Cells as Potential Cures for Human Diseases
TLDR
Preliminary data show in preliminary data that human endometrium contains multipotent mesenchymal stem cells that can be differentiated into chondrocytes, adipocytes, myocytes, neurons, and pancreatic beta-like cells that secrete insulin. Expand

Stem cells: potency, plasticity and public perception *
TLDR
Production of chimaeras with embryonal carcinoma and embryonic stem cells enabled a very thorough investigation of the potency of these cells in the mouse, raising intriguing questions about the importance of lineage in the process of cellular diversification. Expand

TLDR
The recent observations of stem-cell plasticity suggest that perhaps current concepts about the operation of cell regulatory pathways are inadequate, and that new approaches for analysing complex regulatory networks will be essential. Expand
An introduction to stem cells
TLDR
A brief overview summarizes the important attributes of tissue‐based stem cells and clarifies the terms used. Expand

TLDR
The relationships between mouse embryonic stem cells, resident pluripotent cells in the embryo, and human embryo-derived cell lines are evaluated, and the prospects and challenges of embryo stem cell research are considered. Expand
Adult pancreatic β-cells are formed by self-duplication rather than stem-cell differentiation
TLDR
This work introduces a method for genetic lineage tracing to determine the contribution of stem cells to a tissue of interest and suggests that terminally differentiated β-cells retain a significant proliferative capacity in vivo and casts doubt on the idea that adult stem cells have a significant role in β-cell replenishment. Expand
Changing potency by spontaneous fusion
TLDR
A mechanism by which progenitor cells of the central nervous system can give rise to non-neural derivatives is defined, and it is proposed that transdetermination consequent to cell fusion could underlie many observations otherwise attributed to an intrinsic plasticity of tissue stem cells. Expand
Stem cells find their niche
TLDR
Technical advances now make it possible to characterize small zones that maintain and control stem cell activity in several organs, including gonads, skin and gut, and promise to advance efforts to use stem cells therapeutically. Expand
Establishment and Properties of a Growth Factor-Dependent, Perpetual Neural Stem Cell Line from the Human CNS
TLDR
V-myc seems to be the most effective gene and a strict requirement for the presence of mitogens in the growth medium is identified, in effect constituting a conditional perpetuality or immortalization of the human neural stem cell line HNSC.100. Expand
Derivation of pluripotent stem cells from cultured human primordial germ cells
TLDR
Based on their origin and demonstrated properties, these human PGC-derived cultures meet the criteria for pluripotent stem cells and most closely resemble EG cells. Expand
