1. Stem Cell Topic: Human Embryonic Germ Cells
Human Embryonic Germ Cells Embryonic germ cells are derived from primordial germline cells in early fetal tissue during a narrow window of development. Unlike embryonic stem cells , animal experiments on embryonic germ cells have

2. Stem Cell Topic: Stem Cells: What Are They?
Stem Cells : What Are They? Many types of stem cells exist in the human body. All have the capacity to replicate, to self-renew; and they have the capacity to differentiate in order to produce specific body parts such as muscle cells,

6. Stem Cell Topic: Moral Issues Surrounding the Sources of Stem Cells
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 stem

9. Stem Cell Topic: The Moral Status of Human Stem Cells
Moral Status of Human Stem Cells Human embryonic germ (EG) cells are derived from the gonadal ridge tissue of an aborted fetus within five to eight weeks after conception. The procedure is analogous to the harvesting of organs from a
