Stem cells are the first cells formed when an egg and a sperm join and the resultant zygote begins to divide. They are the precursors of all the different types of cells that make up the body. They are characterized by self-renewal – that is, the capacity to continue dividing to make ever-larger populations of stem cells – and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type when they receive appropriate chemical instructions.
The major market for stem cells will be their use in the treatment of disease, and there is already a population of companies specializing in developing stem cells directed toward specific disease targets. This market opportunity is still largely at an early, experimental stage. The main exception is the use of stem cells taken from a patient’s own bone marrow to treat conditions such as leukemia, which is a failure of normal hematopoiesis, or formation of blood cells. This use of stem cells is well established.
