Q: What are the disadvantages of stem cell research?
A: – Limitations on ASC ability to differentiate are still uncertain; currently thought to be multi or unipotent. – Cannot be grown for long periods of time in culture – Usually a very small number in each tissue making them difficult to find and purify – Currently there is no technology available to generate large quantities of stem cells in culture

Q: Can stem cells reverse aging?
A: Stem cells in the brain determine how quickly our bodies age, researchers have noted. But by introducing fresh stem cells, part of the aging process could be slowed down or reversed, a new study finds. Stem cells hold the key to the aging process, according to new research.
Q: Is stem cell therapy used for cancer?
A: Stem cells play an essential role in the cure of cancer, and dendritic cell immunotherapy is the most notable approach to date. It’s a very efficient autologous stem cell treatment for cancer that relies on the use of the dendritic, lymphokine-activated killer cells (LAK cells) and natural killer cells (NK cells).
