ABSTRACT
The authors discuss the study on the factor-free derivation of a pluripotent cell type using a c-Kit+ subpopulation of human amniotic fluid cells. The authors say that the potential of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) to differentiate into any cell type of the human body has raised the hope on its use to treat human diseases. They mention that the future clinical applications of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells will depend on its ability to improve the cells' genome.

    Introduction: (1) Human embryonic stem (eS) cells are pluripotent but are diicult to be used for therapy because of immunological, oncological and ethical barriers. (2) Pluripotent cells exist in vivo, i.e., germ cells and epiblast cells but cannot be isolated without sacriicing the developing...
