4. Stem Cell Topic: Moral Issues Surrounding the Sources of Stem Cells
Surrounding the Sources of Stem Cells At present, there are three possible sources of stem cells: adult stem cells derived from pediatric or adult donors; embryo germ cell stem cells (EG cells ) derived from aborted fetuses; and embryonic

5. Stem Cell Topic: Current Status of Human Stem Cell Research
specific type of multipotent stem cell called a mesenchymal stem cell has been shown to produce bone, muscle, cartilage, fat, and other connective tissues. There are many potential sources for stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are derived from

7. Stem Cell Topic: Stem Cells: What Are They?
the bone marrow, the neural stem cells produced a variety of blood cell types including myeloid and lymphoid cells as well as early hematopoietic cells. This shows two things. First, the neural stem cells appear to have a wider differentiation

8. Stem Cell Topic: Sources of Stem Cells and Guidelines for Use
embryo to participate in stem cell research to the greatest degree possible, stem cells (and stem cell “lines”) should be identified with respect to their provenance. Patients and researchers should be able to avoid participating in

9. Stem Cell Topic: Spiritual and Religious Contexts
issues raised by stem cell research. The most medically promising stem cells, with a capacity to differentiate into any of the human body’s cell types, are derived either from the inner cell mass of preimplantation embryos (ES
