Stem Cell Categories
Stem cells arise from primitive cells in all multi-cellular organisms that are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into mature cell types.
Several broad categories of stem cells exist, including:
- embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts
- perinatal stem cells, obtained immediately before and after birth
- adult stem cells, found in adult tissues
- induced pluripotent stem cells, produced by genetically reprogramming adult cells
- cancer stem cells, which give rise to clonal populations of cells that form tumors or disperse in the body
Stem Cell Research and Its Commercial Interest
Stem cell research has been in process for well over five decades, as stem cells size has the unique ability to divide and replicate repeatedly. In addition, their “unspecialized” nature allows them to differentiate into a wide variety of specialized cell types.
The possibilities arising from stem cells size have resulted in great commercial interest, with potential applications ranging from the use of stem cells in reversal and treatment of disease to targeted cell therapy, tissue regeneration, pharmacological testing on cell-specific tissues, toxicology assessment, and more.
Areas of Stem Cell Research
The following account for the majority of stem cell research:
- Basic Research – understanding stem cell mechanisms and behavior
- Regenerative Medicine – use of stem cells for the reversal of injury or disease
- Drug Target Validation and Drug Delivery – validation of the predicted target using living cells
- Toxicology Screening – use of stem cells to evaluate effects the of drug(s) on biological systems
