  • 15. To date, stem cells have been considered to be used for (a) basic mechanistic understanding how stem cells regulates the total genome and its cell behavior ( cell proliferation in a symmetrical or asymmetical fashion; differentiation; apoptosis, immortality, senescence, etc.); (b) regenerative medicine or stem cell therapy; (c) drug discovery; blocking EDCs (d) toxicity testing of pharmaceuticals, environmental toxicants including EDCs (e) genetic therapy (f) the role of stem cells in stem cell-derived diseases and in the aging process. (g) mimicking human tissue or organ substitute to animal experiments

  • 17. EDCs is an good example for the one health approach • EDCs are ; • 1) lipophilic man-made chemicals • 2) mimicking hormone-like action such as estrogen, androgens • 3) bioaccumulated in environment, animals and human through the food chains. • 4) Therefore, EDCs issue can be approached by One health concepts. 17
