Stem Cells And Lung Tissue Science

  1. 1. Belgian Scientists have Successfully Created Lung Tissue from Stem Cells By Dominic Ansel, Giancarlo Schliemann, and Vahimir Emile
  2. 2. <ul><li>Just recently Belgian Scientists have successfully taken embryonic stem cells, cells from an early stage fetus, and have been able to recreate human lung tissue with them </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>It was thought that lung tissue could only regenerate itself. Stem cells can help regenerate lung tissue much faster, and more effectively. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How embryonic stem cell research works
  5. 5. The Pros and Cons <ul><li>Even though stem cells help regenerate lung tissue, the do not completely heal it </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Stem cells have great potential for a way to help tissue regeneration, but they have been limited because they do not produce enough growth factors after the are transplanted into the body </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The stem cells help generate blood vessels, allowing the tissue to survive and regrow </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Scientists have also been able to create heart tissue with stem cells </li></ul>
