ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview on the stem cell-based regenerative therapy that provides the prospect of restoring functional integrity to damaged tissues and organs. It mentions that the use of embryonic stem (ES) cells for regenerative therapy has contributed to considerable moral and ethical debate despite its capabilities to alleviate human suffering. It highlights the debate on the concept that pluripotent ES cells can only be obtained from blastocyst.
