Stem Cell Therapy: The Alternative to Knee Replacement / What is the difference between adult Stem Cells and embryonic Stem Cells?

  1. Adult STEM CELLS are found in mature adult tissues, including bone marrow and fat, while embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are not found in the adult human body.
  2. Embryonic Stem Cells (ESCs) are obtained from donated embryos provided during in vitro fertilization procedures, which raises many ethical concerns. Because ESCs are not obtained from your body, there is a possibility of immune rejection if the ESCs were to be implanted. Adult STEM CELLS do not raise ethical issues nor pose any risks for immune rejection..
