Embryonic Stem Cells | Stem Cells Freak

By LizaAVILA

As their name suggests, embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are stem cells that are derived from embryos. If we wanted to be more scientific, we would say that ESCs are pluripotent stem cells derived from a blastocyst, an embryo in a very early stage (4-5 days of age).A blastocyst is consisted of 50-150 cells. ESCs measure approximately 14m in diameter.

Genetically modified skin grown from stem cells saved a 7 …

By NEVAGiles23

Scientists reported Wednesday that they genetically modified stem cells to grow skin that they successfully grafted over nearly all of a child’s body – a remarkable achievement that could revolutionize treatment of burn victims and people with skin diseases. The research, published in the journal Nature, involved a 7-year-old boy who suffers from a genetic disease known as junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB) that makes skin so fragile that minor friction such as rubbing causes the skin to blister or come apart
