Types of Stem Cells
- Embryonic Stem Cells
They are derived from embryos obtained after fertilization of egg with sperm, generally used for research purpose not for clinical applications. Currently these stem cell are not generally used for potential clinical Applications.
- Adult Stem Cells
Stem Cells derived from non embryonic source come under this category. They are used for clinical as well as research applications.
- Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
Artificial Stem Cells derived by genetic manipulation of normal tissue cells. They are currently used for research purpose and hold a promising Applications in future.
