Please watch this new documentary showing the amazing results from cord blood stem cells in our son’s life. www.KensJourneyToRecovery.Blogspot.com. The clinic we used was the top clinic in the world, the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama. **note. The footage at the beginning of the film and throughout Ken was 8 YEARS old, not 2, like mentioned in news articles. Video Rating: / 5
Stem cells are found in all multi-cellular organisms. Basically two types of stem cells are found: These are the pluripotent and multipotent. Stem cell growth, in general, depending on their prototype has the capability to generate different types of cells in the body. And the growth of these cell stems may function like a natural replenishing system for the body promoting repair and nurturing other cells during the rest of life span.
When a stem cell gets divided, each of the new cells is termed as the daughter cell and in course of time each of the daughter cells becomes either a stem cell or turn into other specific type of cells with specific function. For example, brain cell, red blood cell or a muscle cell.
The discovery of stem cells and their growth potential has unveiled its scope in multiple areas of health and medical research. The study of the stem cells has revealed the mystery of the creation of the specialized cells out of these mother cells. The analysis of this cell division process on the other hand have been able to explain our inherent cell division process, its pattern, and correlated contribution of cell division in our development and over-all growth of the body.
The insight on the growth potential of stem cells has opened a new avenue for medical treatments. Doctors collect highly plastic adult stem cells from different sources such as the umbilical cord blood, bone marrow and such for different medical therapies. Embryonic cell lines and autologous embryonic stem cells can be regenerated through therapeutic cloning process and the possibility of these generating processes is expected to unhinge new possibilities of medical treatments and repair processes.
Stem cells are now counted as a potential resource for multiple medical benefits. The stem cells have also opened a new possibility for recovery in the area of medical organ transplantation. For instance, donated organs and tissues are often used to replace the diseased and destroyed organs. But there are several instances where the unavailability of fresh organs makes the transplant uncertain and complicated.Â According to researchers, meticulous use of the Pluripotent stem cells can solve this kind of situational intricacy by regeneration of new tissues and cells. This transplantation can treat countless incurable diseases like the injuries to the spinal cord, heart diseases, arthritis, diabetes, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and many more.
It is expected that while working on and analyzing the stem cell growth closely, scientists in near future, may be able to replace damaged organs or consider the addition of new genes to the stem cells. These may prove to be beneficial to implant necessary immunity power required for the treatment of a disease by developing the auto immune power of the patient.

Stem cell treatment and research towards curing illness–from multiple sclerosis to spinal injury–is detailed by Dr. Neil Riordan. The American medical industry, obstructions to research in the states, misconceptions about stem cells, and the details about the treatment process are explained–and we look at video of patient recovery and speculate at what the future could spell for stem cell treatment and research in this Lip News interview, hosted by Elliot Hill.
Dr. Neil Riordan is the founder and Chairman of Medistem Panama, a leading stem cell laboratory and research facility – located in Panama City. His institute is at the forefront of research of the effects of adult stem cells on the course of several chronic diseases. Dr. Riordan has more than 60 scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals. In the stem cell arena, he and his colleagues have published more than 20 articles on Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, Heart Failure, Rheumatoid Arthritis.

The third instalment of RTÉ’s documentary series, ‘Science Friction’ where science and society collide, explores one of the most controversial issues in the history of science: the human embryo and its use in the ground-breaking field of stem cell research.
In this episode, presenter Liz Bonnin embarks on a journey to meet the different people, both within and outside the science community, whose lives are touched by the controversy surrounding the embryo. Liz talks to 22-year-old Geoff Harte, who was left paralysed after breaking his neck in a school rugby match, and now believes that stem cells may one day help him to walk again.
We also hear from Stephen Sullivan, a Harvard based Irish scientist who uses frozen embryos left over as a result of IVF treatment, as a source of stem cells for his groundbreaking research. On the flip side of the coin, Martin Clynes, a scientist at Dublin City University, explains why he passionately believes that research which destroys human embryos is morally unacceptable.
And finally, Liz meets Lisa O’Callaghan who, after giving birth to a daughter thanks to IVF treatment, now finds herself with frozen embryos of her own and confusion over what will become of them. O’Callaghan is not alone; this is an issue particularly relevant to Ireland, where the status of the embryo is mired in ambiguity and embryonic stem cell research remains a no-go area for scientists.
Stem cell research is one of the most exciting branches of modern medical science. Stem cells have the ability to transform themselves into any of the over 200 different types of cells found in the human body. Stem cells have been hailed by many scientists as the source of potential treatments for currently incurable conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and spinal injury.
However it’s not a straight-forward ‘good news’ story because according to a large body of scientists, the best source of stem cells is currently the human embryo and in order to remove the stem cells, the embryo must be destroyed.
The controversy revolves around people’s perception of the embryo. To some, it is the very early stage in the life of a human being and must be afforded the same rights as a fully developed person. But, to others, it is a collection of cells which, while having the potential to become a human being, can justifiably be used instead to treat terrible diseases.
In this compelling documentary, Bonnin confronts the fact that, sooner or later, the Irish public will have to make a decision on how we view the human embryo. Video Rating: / 5
