Understanding Stem Cells part 24

Stem cell 5

 

It will be essential that scientists are sure that stem cells have fully differentiated before they can use them for medical application. If completely undifferentiated stem cells (such as embryonic stem cells) are implanted directly into an organism, they can cause a type of tumor called teratoma, which scientists have observed in experiments using mice. Semi-specialized adult stem cells and differentiated cells  derived from embryonic stem cells are unlikely to cause teratomas.
