ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which investigated the isolation of amniotic stem cell lines with potential for therapy. Researchers discovered that stems cells from amniotic fluid have properties that resemble those of embryonic stem cells. According to the researchers, the advantages of stem cells from amniotic fluid include the observation that cells routinely discarded during amniocentesis could be harvested without destroying human embryos. Based on the findings of the study, the researchers are planning to develop the cells for use in treating diseases.
