Stem cells and the production of organoids at the forefront of biomedical science

There are topics in which biomedical interest merges with ethical interest. One of these is undoubtedly the subject of stem cells wich appears to be the biomedical science forefront. Few issues in the biomedical sciences arouse as much interest as these, and for this reason, the...

What is the current clinical usefulness of stem cell treatments, embryonic and iPS cells?

Human adult stem cells (iPS) have been found to be the most clinically useful human cells for therapeutic purposes Pluripotent cells (iPS) are defined as those from which cells of different tissue types can be obtained. These can be obtained either from preimplantation human...

Improved efficacy in the generation of iPS cells for clinical use

One of the difficulties in the use of reprogrammed cells (iPS cells) is the low efficiency. Now, a technical step has been taken to substantially increase this. Using it, Australian researchers, combining it with the genome editing technique CRISPR-Cas9, have been able to...

iPS cells an ethical end effective technique for medical purposes

Now, for the first time, skeletal muscle cells have been derived from iPS successfully A concern raised some time ago is to determine whether the iPS cells produced from adult somatic cells have the specific characteristics of embryonic stem cells. If so, iPS cells could...

Fraudulent cell therapies. They must be subject to medical evidence

Fraudulent cell therapy an objective ethics problem in biomedicine One major ethical problem in the field of cell therapy is the fraud that can be committed by proposing the use of treatments that have not been proven to be clinically effective. This fraud can be especially...
