Abstract

ZATZ, Mayana. Clonagem e células-tronco. Estud. av. [online]. 2004, vol.18, n.51, pp.247-256. ISSN 1806-9592.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-40142004000200016.

ALTHOUGH concepts such as human cloning (reproductive and therapeutic), stem cells (embryonic and non-embryonic) , and stem cell therapy and how these issues may affect our lives have been extensively discussed, there is still a lot of misunders-tanding. Therefore the aim of this article is to try to better explain these definitions and express my personal opinion on ethical aspects not only as a scientist but also as a representative of inumerous families who hope that this technology might represent in the future a treatment for many neurodegenerative disorders often lethal or severely disabling.
