Promise and Therapeutic Potential of Stem Cell Research

A Banerjee, A. Kushwah, N. Jain

Abstract


Stem cells are unspecialized cells or primitive cells that can replenish their number for long periods through cell division and can differentiate into specialized cells after receiving specific signals. Advancement in stem cell research generates knowledge on how an organism develops from a single cell and how healthy cells replace damaged cells. Stem cell research provides possibilities of cell based therapies to treat diseases. Application of stem cells in equine and canine therapeutics hold tremendous promise and are being extensively explored world wide. Strong policy should be made considering people's sentiments to avoid misuse of the technique.
