  • 2 mins to list cell types and then discuss where these difference come from relate back to original cell division (mitosis). Differentiated or specialised cells.
  • Highlight how in the UK they can only be used for 14 days.
  • Extension, own viewpoint or viewpoint from sheet.
  • P: Draw cartoon to sum up your opinion on stem cells.
  • B2.9 stem cells

    1. 1. Starter activity List as many different types of cells as you can think off.
    2. 2. Stem cells WALT: To understand what stem cells are and how they are used. WILF: ~ Recall what stem cells are. (D) ~ Describe the differences between adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells. (C) ~ Explain why there are advantages, disadvantages and risks in stem cell research. (B-A*) Keywords stem cell embryonic stem cell adult stem cell
    3. 3. Embryonic stem cells Muscle cells Red blood cells Neurones (nerve cells)
    4. 4. What for? Any disease or damage caused by cells that no longer work properly may one day be treated and cured using stem cells. Diabetes Leukaemia Spinal cord cells
    5. 5. Where from? ~ embryonic stem cells taken from leftover embryos from fertility treatment ~ adult stem cells taken from within the tissue of the patient ~ stem cells taken from cloned embryos that are produced using the nucleus of a patient's cell and an empty human egg cell, and then treated to divide and form an embryo
    6. 6. Make a table showing the benefits and drawbacks of using stem cells to treat human disorders. Keywords Embryonic stem cells Adult stem cells Differentiated Benefits Drawbacks
    7. 7. Embryonic stem cells kill innocent embryos. This is murder. Stem cells are thought to hold huge potential for treating a wide range of disease and disabilities. Many believe that the use of embryonic stem cells, taken from aborted embryos is unethical, because they view the embryos just as they’d view fully developed human corpses. There is a risk of rejection if stem cells are taken from one person and put into another. "If someone is going to have an abortion, isn’t it better that we use it for something useful?" Stem cell therapy could treat Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, diabetes, burns and spinal cord damage. Many embryonic stem cells come from aborted embryos or from spare embryos in fertility treatment. Stem cells may also provide a useful way to test the effects of experimental drugs.
