Transcript of Organ Cloning Biology by Elisha Margar, Kyle Boone, and Hemanth Koralla

Somatic cell nuclear transfer Donor ovum stripped of its DNA Ovum is injected with patient's DNA Minute electircal shock is given Ovum grows into a pre-embryo and creates stem cells Stem cells are removed and pre-embryo is destroyed Stem cell is grown into any organ or tissue Cultivated organ is transplated into patient Organ Cloning Disadvantages 90% of attempts fail extremely expensive and inefficient Ethical Issues Some people say that the pre-embryo is considered human Organ Cloning Infection and tumor formation of the transplanted organs Organ Cloning Advantages NO rejection from patient because the organ is being made from the patient's own DNA Infection and tumor formation Can save millions of people Eliminates donor waiting list Stem cells can be made into ANY organ that the patient wants Organ cloning future Induced pluripotent stem cells Scientists plan to eliminate animal testing So, whenever we kill a pre-embryo for stem cells, we are killing a "human" ? where are we going to get all of those donor ova?
