  • therapeutic
  • The fun-gibility or non-specialized nature of stem cells provides consider-able therapeutic potential in that the cells can be "doctored" and used to replace damaged, infected or dead cells in a person's body and restore his or her health. (zambian-economist.com)

  • If you just took the human embryonic stem-cells that are currently being worked on in laboratories across the country, and let's say you found a way to develop insulin-producing cells to put into child diabetics, you couldn't use those cells to do that with, because they'd be rejected by the body's immune system.
