Focuses on the debate over stem cells in the United States. Claim that some scientists have exaggerated stem cells' potential for cures; Reference to a proposition in California that would give $3 billion to human embryonic stem cell research; Research conducted by Hans Kierstead of the University of California's Reeve-Irvine Research Center; Ethics surrounding the use of embryonic stem-cells in research; Obstacles faced by scientists in creating various types of tissue out of stem cells; Reference to an article in the June 2004 issue of "Scientific American," by Robert Lanza and Nadia Rosenthal.

    The seminal report from Takahashi and Yamanka in 2006 describing the reprogramming of somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells [1] marked the beginning of a new field of research, resulting in hundreds of publications in a short 3 years. Among other things, the promise of iPS cells...

    The ethical debate surrounding human pluripotent stem (PS) cell research is mainly due to use of human embryonic stem (ES) cells. It has been suggested by many that human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells would end the debate due to their non-embryonic origin. This review examines the ethical...
