STEM CELLS MAKING YOU CRAZY?!!!
Embryonic? Adult? induced Pluripotent? Omnipotent? Tutipotent? Umbilical? Fetal? Placental? Mesynchymal? Adipose? Are you confused by it all?
CAN ANYONE MAKE SENSE OF THIS MESS OF INFORMATION!?!?!
STEM CELLS 101
ADULT STEM CELL = ASC
- SOURCE/DERIVED FROM•comes from blood, umbilical cords, bone marrow, placenta fat tissue, muscle, nasal neurological, breast milk, menstruation, dental pulp, and many more
- PURPOSE IN BODY•they are the body’s natural healing cells
- OBSTACLES+SIDE EFFECTS•~zero problems (virtually zero side effects)
- TREATMENT HISTORY•used in bone marrow transplants to treat cancer for 40 years
- TREATMENT HISTORY•can currently treat 130+ diseases safely and effectively (CP, MS, Autism, Diabetes, CHF, PAD, etc)
EMBRYONIC STEM CELL = ESC
- SOURCE/DERIVED FROM•comes from embryos
- PURPOSE IN BODY•split for 7 weeks until you have a fetus the size of a thumbnail
- OBSTACLES+SIDE EFFECTS•they create cysts and tumors, rejection requires immunosuppressive drugs for the ill patient, they carry the genetic anomalies of the donor, etc
- TREATMENT HISTORY•can currently treat zero diseases, probably need to cure cancer first to use them
INDUCED PLURIPOTENT STEM CELL = iPSC (“Embryonic Stem Cell Lite”)
- SOURCE/DERIVED FROM•comes from regular adult cells like skin cells that are then transformed by scientists into stem cells
- PURPOSE IN BODY•to be a skin cell or other tissue
- OBSTACLES+SIDE EFFECTS•they create cysts and tumors, rejection requires immunosuppressive drugs for the ill patient, they carry the genetic anomalies of the donor…
- TREATMENT HISTORY•no treatments to date, probably need to cure cancer first to use them
