cloning
For women, Pathenogenesis is now a reality
By Dross at 2007-12-22 22:10
 

New Rochelle, NY, December 19, 2007—In a groundbreaking experiment published in Cloning & Stem Cells, scientists from International Stem Cell (ISC) Corp. derived four unique embryonic stem cell lines that open the door for the creation of therapeutic cells that will not provoke an immune reaction in large segments of the population. The stem cell lines are “HLA-homozygous,” meaning that they have only the genetic profile of the mother, but duplicated. Every egg from a woman has one copy of the information needed to raise a woman. Humans need two copies, and the second is usually provided by the father, including either an X or a Y. A group of researchers has simply copied the half that already existed in the egg, and created a new cell with the potential to grow into bllod cells, nerve, or any other needed cell type. This is different to cloning, which would be an exact replica of the mother. The lines could serve to create a stem cell bank as a renewable source of transplantable cells for use in cell therapy to replace damaged tissues or to treat genetic and degenerative diseases.
