Cloning and stemm cel

Wolf Legal Publishers


This collection of legislation on stem cell research provides a complete and in-depth overview of the current state of affairs concerning this topic in America. This collection is vital for every legal academic scholar, especially now that the United States are marking the progress of stem cell research as one of their top priorities.
Stem cells are cells found in most, if not all, multi-cellular organisms. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves through cell division and differentiation into a diverse range of specialized cell types. Stem cells can now be grown and transformed into specialized cells with characteristics consistent with cells of various tissues, such as muscles or nerves, through cell culture. For this reason, 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 bone marrow are touted as promising candidates.
As promising as this may sound, under the previous government policies, stem cell research in the United States was kept on a very tight leash, since they limited the various uses of stem cell research enormously through the adaptation of strict legislation. The United States’ former president even pronounced that he would use his veto, if the senate would stretch the stem cell legislation beyond his prescribed limits. Now, a whole new era opens for the United States, since the current government already made known it will make important changes to the existing legislation concerning stem cell research.
