Research and Markets: Delving into Stem Cell Research and its Potential in 2013

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Delving into Stem Cell Research and its Potential" report to their offering.

Stem cells are primal cells found in all multi-cellular organisms that retain the ability to renew themselves through mitotic cell division and can differentiate into a wide range of specialized cell types.

As stem cells can be readily grown and transformed into specialized cells with characteristics consistent with cells of various tissues such as muscles or nerves through cell culture, their use in medical therapies has been proposed. In particular, embryonic cell lines, autologous embryonic stem cells generated through therapeutic cloning, and highly plastic adult stem cells from the umbilical cord blood or one marrow are touted as promising candidates.

There exists a widespread controversy over stem cell research that emanates from the techniques used in the creation and usage of stem cells. Human embryonic stem cell research is particularly controversial because, with the present state of technology, starting a stem cell line requires the destruction of a human embryo and/or therapeutic cloning.

Challenges, barriers, benefits of stem cells, a look at the global approach to stem cell research, and an analysis of the leading players in this industry are what make this report a must-have!
