Fetal stem cells.
Fetal stem cells, the primitive stem cells found in the fetus are generally referred to as fetal stem cells. (these are sometimes called foetal stem cells).
Using adult stem cells for research purposes is not producing anywhere near as much controversy or disagreements as using these fetal or embryonic stem cells.
Because working with adult stem cells does not require the destruction of an embryo, adult stem cells research is far more acceptable than using embryonic stem cells.
Because stem cell research is now attracting a tremendous amount of attention, it is important to be able to differentiate between the researches now being done on these two entirely different types of cells.
There is also another important factor here too. Where the adult stem cells are obtained from the anticipated recipient the likelihood of rejection is going to be far less likely to occur.
This area of using adult stem cells is where major progress in health care and repair of our bodies is now being made.
If we can obtain these stem cells from the same person or individual any possible rejection is going to be almost non-existent.
In this regard the work of a Canadian scientist Christian Drapeau has made a big breakthrough.
He has found and isolated a natural product which has been scientifically proven to increase the stem cells in our blood stream quite significantly. This results in the bodies themselves being able to repair and perform their natural function of carrying out body repairs as and when needed.
