Data Safety Monitoring Board, a group of independent experts who monitor clinical outcomes for safety.In October 2014, Advanced Cell Technology (now Ocata Therapeutics) published encouraging results, based on an analysis of 18 patients, who were monitored for an average of almost two years.Scientists must be sure that the transplant cells will not increase cancer risk.There are three significant challenges to effective transplant treatments:.Scientists have long hoped that stem cells might have the power to treat diseases.Since all of the cells in our body have the same genes, new photoreceptors grown from the skin cells of a person with inherited disease would have the same mutation that caused the damage.60 61 Disadvantages edit Stem cell treatments may require immunosuppression because of a requirement for radiation before the transplant to remove the person's previous cells, or because the patient's immune system may target the stem cells.20 Due to ethical considerations, many nations currently have moratoria or limitations on either human ES cell research or the production of new human ES cell lines."Stem cells: their definition, classification and sources".FFB donors have supported.57 An alternative theory is that stem cells remain undifferentiated due to environmental cues in their particular niche.As a result of the success of these experiments, Ian Wilmut, who helped create the first cloned animal Dolly the Sheep, has announced that he will abandon somatic cell nuclear transfer as an avenue of research.
