24. Stem Cell Topic: Current Status of Human Stem Cell Research
Totipotent stem cells are cells that can give rise to a fully functional organism as well as to every cell type of the body. Pluripotent stem cells are capable of giving rise to virtually any tissue type, but not to a functioning

25. Stem Cell Topic: Funding
the potential of human stem cells from these various sources. Embryonic stem cells (ES cells ) derived from early embryos and embryonic germ cells (EG cells) have particular promise for a wide range of therapeutic applications because they are

26. Stem Cell Topic: Spiritual and Religious Contexts
those involving the use of cells obtained from embryos (ES cells), or from deliberately aborted fetuses (EG cells). The fact that much basic research needs to be done in the area of human embryonic development suggests that both ES and EG cells

27. Stem Cell Topic: What are the New Discoveries?
out the individual cells, and placed them on a feeder tray. The cells divided. They reproduced themselves. Because these cells are as yet undifferentiated--that is, they are pluripotent and able to make any part of a human body--they are

29. Stem Cell Topic: Question: Why is "Derivation" Important?
With regard to hEG cells, the NIH is more lenient. "Unlike pluripotent stem cells derived from early human embryos, DHHS funds may be used to support research to derive pluripotent stem cells from fetal tissue, as well as for
