ABSTRACT
The article focuses on stem cell research. According to the author, most research focused on human embryonic stem cells which are useful for treating a host of conditions. Some people object to embryonic stem cell research because human embryos are destroyed when their stem cells are harvested. Research efforts also showed that like embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells can be used for treating osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma.
