As you start to learn about stem cells, one of the most common questions to have is, “What types of stem cells exist?” There is not an agreed-upon number of stem cell types, because one can classify stem cells either by differentiation potential (what they can turn into) or by origin (from where they are sourced). This post is dedicated to explaining the five types of stem cells, based on differentiation potential. [Read more…]
Biotech investing has become an increasingly popular in recent years. Whether you’re new to stem cell stocks or you’ve been around the block, now could be a good time to place your bets.

What do we know of the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapeutics? Over 50 years have passed since the discovery of hematopoietic stem cells (bone marrow transplantation to cure diseases such as leukemia), over 20 years since the discovery of human embryonic stem cells (hESC), and 15 years since the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells). There are now thousands of stem cell trials underway in clinics worldwide.
Despite this experience, what do we actually know about the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapeutics? [Read more…]
