Understanding Stem Cells part 16

Stem cell 5

 

Scientists believe that if they are able to use nuclear transfer to derive human stem cells, it could allow them to study the development and progression of specific diseases by creating stem cells containing the genes responsible for certain disorders. In the future, scientists may also be able to create “personalized” stem cells that contain only the DNA of a specific patients. The embryonic stem cells created by nuclear transfer would be genetically matched to a person needing a transplant, making it far less likely that the patient’s body would reject the new cells that it would be with traditional tissue transplant procedures.
