Stem Cells

Similarities and differences



  1. Both the types of stem cells are unspecialized and show vast potential in terms of curing diseases and organ transplant.

  2. The umbilical cord stem cells and the developed stem cells, if used from the same individual have negligible chances of getting rejected by the immune system and may show better improvement.

  3. They can be extracted without any side effect, stored and cultured when required.


Developed Stem Cells

  1. Multipotent- these stem cells can give rise only to a limited number of cell types
  2. Culture- These are less in number, (rare in matured cells) and isolating them is challenging. Increasing their number in cell culture is not easy and the scientists are still attempting to do this successfully.
  3. Organ rejection- These stem cells are less likely to face immune rejection as the patients own cells are extracted and cultured.
Embryonic stem cells

  1. Pluripotent- These cells have the capacity to develop into more than 200 cell types in the human body.
  2. Culture- These are easier to culture and their number can be increased easily in culture. Large number of stem cells is required for stem replacement therapies.
  3. Organ rejection- the chances of organ rejection are more here as the stem cells are taken from donor embryos. Though research is on, and this fact is yet to be established.
