Regenerative medicine with stem cells holds great hope for the treatment of degenerative disease. The medical potential of embryonic stem cells remains relatively untapped at this point, and significant scientific hurdles remain to be overcome before these cells might be considered safe and effective for uses in patients. Meanwhile, adult stem cells have begun to show significant capabilities of their own in repair of damaged tissues, in both animal models and early patient trials.
