Transcript of stem cells

The Miracle Cells What are they? cells that have the ability to divide into a diverse range of specialized cells How does that work? cure It would cost... they are found in all multicellular organisms there are two main types of stem cell Muscular Dystrophy Alzheimer's Disease Cancer So where is the research now? bone marrow transplants used to treate leukemia and lymphoma In the future they could present day 21million dollars altogether 10-20 years
with this research, you have the possibilty to control cells that divide ENDLESSLY The medical possibilies are endless The Perfect Solution? Stem cells are really useful because of their capabilities
but... they are controversial and tdifficult to control. " NIH believes that it is important to simultaneously pursue all lines of research and search for the very best sources of these cells."

We're not alone

"Researchers and biotech executives foresee the day when the effects of many catastrophic diseases can be reversed. The damaged brains of Alzheimer's disease patients may be restored. Severed spinal cords may be rejoined. Damaged organs may be rebuilt. Stem cells provide hope that this dream will become a reality."

- National Institute of Health -GEORGE WOLFF, The Biotech Investor's Bible "We've decided that we would like to take this step and to do it with caution and to do it with oversight and to do it with the strictest adherence to ethics and all of the principles this country stands for."

-MICHAEL J. FOX, ABC interview, Oct. 29, 2006 I think it is respecting life to reach for that cure.

-JOHN KERRY, presidential debate, Oct. 8, 2004
